So, we were treated out to dinner Saturday night. To a nice restaurant on the lake. Reservations were made, requesting a prime spot on the patio since it was such a beautiful evening. We were looking forward to it since we had never been there before.
The place was PACKED!!! Even though our name was on the list, we still had to get a little buzzer. Not knowing how long our wait was going to be, the 6 of us decided to have a seat past the patio. That meant walking through the jam packed patio! Jam packed, meaning, there were probably 20 tables with at least 5-6 people at each table.
Enter the 6 of us. 2 of the girls in front of me, 3 of the guys behind me (my husband at the very back of the line). The patio was the shiny concrete - SLICK. I'm sure you see where this is going.
Yep!!!!!! I fell. In front of ALL of those people. It was THE most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to me. EVER. And, I'm here to say, that I laughed through it! That's the ONLY thing that kept me from crying. It was funny, but nobody on the patio was laughing (if you were there, thank you for not laughing at me - - - at least until I was gone). What isn't funny is my swollen knee. The picture does not do the damage justice.....and I didn't feel like getting "that perfect shot" to prove it. :)
I hope everyone else had an accident free Saturday night.
We're both a little accident prone and have had our fair share of experiences faceplanting the ground in public, so we feel your pain! You definitely did the best thing possible though- laugh through it! Hopefully your knee will be back to normal in no time!
