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.

Oh my gawd I'm roaring right now...

I actually worked with a guy who did the exact same thing. We worked in a restaurant with an ice cream bar and someone dropped a banana peel on the floor. He stepped on it, fell and hurt his ankle. It isn't funny at all, but when you actually stop and think about it, it really is something that should only happen in a cartoon. Hahaha...

Bwahahahahaha! A banana peel? Okay, you have to know I would be laughing my tush off as I pulled your sorry self off the asphalt!

And yeah you never know when the coyote is going to drop an anvil right in your path, you better look out.
