A Phunny Story..

From me too.

After reading Shail’s hilarious post, I am reminded of an incident which easily makes for one of the most embarrassing moments of my life.

The year was way back in 1994, my first year in college. The college was fairly new to me, so I was still learning the ropes of getting around the building. I was already late for my class, so I rushed up to the second floor, only to realize that the classroom was in the first floor.

Now I have a strange reputation of being someone who is always in a hurry! In school, I used to be teased for the manner in which I used to walk so fast! A bunch of us would be strolling and yapping away in our recess and I would be ten steps ahead of them already missing out on the juiciest bits of gossip! And this trait has remained with me till now. One of my friends, the other day, had remarked how I ate so fast that she wondered if I chewed my food at all or simply gulped it down!

Anyway, coming back to my college, I was on the brink of missing my class. I scurried down the stairs hoping I would make it to the class smooth! But those stairs had other plans for me! They didn’t want me to run down smooth. Instead they made me skip a step and I went slipping down to the floor, flat on my arse!


There were some girls sitting in the next leg of stairs. Before they could realize if I needed any help, I was up, with cheeks red as a cherry with embarrassment. Now when you’re embarrassed to the point of feeling utterly stupid, your brain stops functioning! Just like the way my brain did. Which is why, instead of just walking away, I ended up saying ‘Thank you’ to those girls!

Needless to say the girls were wonderstruck! “Has she gone crazy? Why is she thanking us?” The clueless look on their faces seemed to ask. Well, I had no clue why I had thanked them either. And before they could come up to me to clarify if falling flat on my bum had an adverse impact on my head, I scooted from there.

So now you know what to expect when you see me walk or run down the stairs and skip a step or two. Yup…you can totally expect me to make a fool of myself!

BTW, I may just choose to say ‘Sorry’ in my next fall, so be ready, ok. Or wait..I like the sound of babloogosh. Right, ‘Babloogosh’ it shall be then! :mrgreen:

    I have lost count of the times I have hit a furniture or door or anything hittable and said ‘sorry’ to the thing I have hit or any person watching, as if I have hurt them and not myself !
    And I eat and walk fast too! I finish my food by the time others swallow their first morsel and when roaming together with friends/parents/siblings I am always ahead and have to wait for others to catch up after every 5-10 steps!


    1. LOL! “I finish my food by the time others swallow their first morsel and when roaming together with friends/parents/siblings I am always ahead and have to wait for others to catch up after every 5-10 steps!” You’re so me, Seena! πŸ˜€


  2. You know why you thanked them….you thought they closed their eyes when you fell down…ha ha ha…..

    I am little similar to you…. i want to get things done quickly…my mom always tells me slow down….


  3. Thank you for the laughs! Well, at least you’d slipped down the stairs so you have some consolation for saying the unnecessary Thank you. In my case, one afternoon, my friends and I were getting off the bus and I ‘almost’ said, “Good afternoon Sir, Thank You Sir….” to the bus conductor sitting next to the exit.LOL!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€


  4. Haha.. To be honest I have fell down so many times in my life that I dont even feel embarassed any more πŸ˜›

    Just a few days ago, I got pushed by a friend and fell flat on the ground in college. There were about 50 people around and I just stood back up laughing πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€


  5. We share the same propensity to eat and walk faster than we should! I’m working on it. It’s good to be able to laugh at oneself though. Visiting from the A=Z challenge.
