esterday, had you been sitting in the cube next to mine, you would have heard a bit of a kerfuffle going on next door.
You see, I have a silk skirt that’s really quite lovely, but also quite slick. You must sit with care when wearing a slick skirt.
Unfortunately, at lunch, that little fact flew out of my mind the minute my fork dropped to the floor. Ten second rule! thought I. Then, in a blaze of lightening, my top half bent down to retrieve the utensil, whilst my bottom half slid right off my chair. I landed with a thud; my chair shot behind me, ricocheting off the wall.
There I sat, on the floor, in a rather un-lady like fashion–a stunned look in my eye, a fork in my hand.
I like to think it’s a message to us all: you can be victorious even in moments of humility.
Also, silk skirts–they’re wiley fellows.
