When I was in the 6th grade....I was at Sunday School one morning and it had just let out for services. Keep in mind i went to a HUGE church with several thousand members. My sunday school class was upstairs..there are two huge marble/concrete stair cases in the front entry way of the church.
My little middle school boyfriend and I were being goofy and chasing each other around. At the time - i was wearing a skirt that was way too big on me length wise and high heels (not a good combo!
) My little "boyfriend" proceded to grab my purse and run down the stair case with it teasing me. So me being the little runner i was- i took off after him - completly disreguarding i had a skirt and heels on
Yea- I tripped over my skirt near the top of the stair case and fell all the way down the stairs
To make matters better- it was right when the early service was letting out and the second service was getting ready to go into the santuary so EVERYONE saw
I was soooo embaressed! To add insult to inujry- one of the elderly little deacons saw the whole thing happen and ran over to me with his arms open (AFTER i hit the last step
) and said "I got you honey!" at the top of his lungs. - i said, " no sir, i think you missed me"
so yea,...i wound up going to the ER after church - i had broken the bottom part of my tailbone
Talk about a clumsy moment! (ah yes- and i did get my purse back
