Remember in Clueless where Tai walks into the party and falls down the stairs, and then the random guy comes up to her and says "Are you okay? That looked pretty bad."
That's the first thing that popped into my head when I fell at the grocery store this week..
The other night it was pouring rain and I stopped to get a 12 pack of Sprite and a gallon of milk. It was so crowded that there wasn't much parking, so I definitely had an audience for the ever so graceful swan dive.
I was wearing flip flops and totally slid coming out of the store and fell hard. My legs went flailing, I dropped the box, and cans went flying all over. All the while cursing and slumped on the ground I tried to gather the scattered Sprite cans.
That's when I hear, "Wow, it's slippery out here, are you okay?" When I looked up I saw a chubby 15 year old kid in a Metallica shirt staring down at me.
I was so embarrassed and was trying to get out of there. I mumbled something like "Yeah thanks." but when I looked back up, he had already left and was quickly getting into a car. It was bizarre because tons of people were watching and not one of them said anything except for this kid and it wasn't like he was helping me gather the cans and help me up, he was almost just making an observation.
When I got home I relayed the story to Bob and he just sat silent for a minute and then said "Wow, it's incredible how often this stuff happens to you." "You know winter is coming up, and with all the ice maybe we should invest in getting you some knee pads and a helmet."
