My Near Death Experience
Something happened to me in the Target parking lot today that I thought only happened in cartoons. I parked, got out of the car, and walked around to the back passenger side to get Bella out of her car seat. And I slipped. On a BANANA PEEL. Can you even believe it? I have seen it happen on old sit-coms and cartoons, but never seen it happen to anyone in real life, let alone have it happen to me. And a lady saw the whole thing, and asked if I was okay. All I could muster was an embarrassed " There's a banana peel right there..." I don't know what the proper reaction to slipping on a banana peel is- since I'm not a cartoon character. All I know is that as I was walking into Target after the incident, I was looking up at the sky to be sure an anvil wasn't going to fall on my head.
