Do you have that one person in your life where whatever they do, something weird happens to them or they are just the unluckiest person? Stepping in a pile of dog poop on the way to a big interview or running into their ‘crush’ in the street not knowing that a bird above knew this encounter was about to happen and decided to time their toilet stop right on the top of that persons’ head at that very moment?
Well hello, hi, how are ya? I am that person for those who know me.
Weird things have always happened to me throughout my life and to be honest, it keeps me on my toes. Who knows what might happen, it is an exciting adventure for not only myself but those around me too.
ABDUCTED BY ALIENS? I’m up for that.
Maxi skirts/dresses… Oh yes, they might seem innocent and aren’t they just the comfiest piece of clothing a gal can wear, but man they can have a mind of their own. Have you ever been wearing a maxi with those slits in the side and wondered ‘Imagine if I get caught on something wearing this’.
Let me tell you, YOU CAN.
The first escapade happened when I was walking down the street with my boyfriend. There was a dog sitting patiently for it’s owner who had left it near a bench seat outside a shop. Ricky kept walking ahead of me while I stopped to say hello. Next minute I get up and start walking fast to catch up with Ricky and my maxi skirt got caught between two of the pieces of wood on the seat resulting in catapulting me backwards and almost ripping my skirt in half.
Embarrassing maxi episode number 1.
(This has happened multiple times since, oops! Just can’t get enough of wearing maxi’s it seems).
Number 2. Ohhhh number 2. I was in a huge shopping centre going down an escalator.
Yes I know what you’re thinking.
What could possibly go wrong…?
The corner of my skirt was getting eaten up between two of the escalator steps. Like a t-rex eating it’s favourite meal. I realised about half way down that it felt like something was pulling on my skirt and at that moment I have never been more determined to rip something in my life. There were people in front of me and behind me so there was no time to lose. I could see the steps starting to disappear in front of me and I knew if I got to the bottom, my skirt would be getting ripped off. Wearing the comfiest and ugliest undies I own, there was no way I was going to let the escalator expose such horror. I was turning green…into the Incredible Hulk and with a couple of super hero pulls, my skirt came out of the clasps of those escalator, t-rex teeth with a mighty noise and I happily skipped off the bottom with a laugh and a huge sense of relief.
I have been caught on door handles, tripped up stairs while wearing them and of course when it is windy, it is hard holding that much fabric down when holding a lot of shopping bags.
To my pals in the unlucky department, just letting you know that you’re not alone and we aren’t actually ‘unlucky’.
We are gifted at making every day an exciting one.
