OH MY!!

Yesterday I had to go to Chelsea's school to get some homework for her because she is suspended. (which is a whole other story) Its been snowing here for three days so everything is icy and slippery. I had my work shoes on because after I had to go straight to work. We walked up the long sidewalk covered in snow and ice and entered the school. The school bell had just rang and all the kids and teachers were in the halls making their way to the next classes and laughing and talking. I felt like I was back in high school and I fit right in because most of the kids were taller then me. Here I am with my work clothes on and my big winter coat and my cool new purse when all of a sudden...my feet went out from underneath me and I fall straight down. My purse hit the floor and so did I. I looked up and everyone was watching me. I was mortified. LOL Nobody came over to help...they just stared. Chelsea said "mom, are you OK?" I quickly got off the floor...motioned to everyone in the "coolest" way I could that I was OK and started walking really fast to my daughters locker. Any semblance of "cool" was lost. As I walked down the hallway I could hear the kids snickering behind me...so in order to join with them in the fun of laughing at me...I turned around...looked at them...and laughed with them. They just looked at each other like "shes weird." I'm such a geek. LOL

Hahaa. You have a great sense of humor. I work in middle schools and if I ever catch myself in the halls when the bell rings, I step into the first room I can. Those hallways are war zones, even if your feet aren't wet and slippery. Glad you are ok. :)

I must be a old jerk or something but I think those bratty teenagers need to learn respect. At least you ARE a cool mom and can laugh it off.
