Where to start....
In general I'm pretty coordinated, but sometimes I have my off days. Here's a really good--or bad--example....
Okay, so it was the week before winter break. I was so
ready to get OUT of 7th grade for two whole weeks!! I was at my friend's locker before homeroom, as usual. She left to go to homeroom, and as I was walking, I realized that my shoes were untied. So I quickly dipped down and started to tie them.... Two seconds later, something human-sized hit my back with an "oomph!", knocking me face-down, splayed out in the hallway on my stomach. The person had tripped over me and was in a position much like mine a foot or so away from me. Books were everywhere and papers fluttered to the ground.
We both got to our feet, and at the same time started to growl at each other, "Watch where you're going!" But we both only got out "Watch where you're..." before I realized who the person was. MY CRUSH!!!
I wanted to die. We both blushed (ugh
) and started darting around the hallway, trying to separate one person's papers from the other's and trying to make sure we didn't get the other person's math homework or something. We handed each other papers and textbooks, saying thank you to our shoes. At the same time, we rose and said, "Sorry, my bad," and rushed in opposite directions. It was horrible!!
My mouth gets me sometimes, too. I'll say stuff like, "McKenzie, I moved it three feet, maybe a yard. Oh, wait..." or say while working a math problem, "...and two times two is four, so then...oh, hang on a second, I meant...."
