The fall of a potato

I had a bad start of the day today. Early early in the morning already hurt my knee? HOW?

Hai....this morning, on my way to the office, after I bade goodbye to Rick and was about to rushed across the road before the pedestrian traffic light turned red, lo and behold, PANG!!!! I slipped and the big potato fell (gracefully lah, muahahaha) by the side of the street. OMG, you have no idea how embarrassing I was. Wearing so nice, knee length skirt some more, and then falling (gracefully ok) right before so many eyes!!! Ok, not many eyes lah actually, too early in the morning, but enough to make me so embarrassing! I so wanted to dip my head right into a hole if I could find one. Rick rushed back and helped me up. *hole leh, where is the HOLE for my head when I need it!?!?!*

So yeah, I could still walk to my office but the pain kicked in about half an hour later and I was limping whole day.
