Yeah... so I totally wiped out today in front of all my students. And this wasn't just a little slip, and catch yourself. Oh no... this was absolute, feet went one way, I was suspended in midair for about 2 seconds, and then, splat, right on the sidewalk. After the initial shock, I picked myself up - only to see that the kids were right inside the door, staring wide eyed and open-mouthed.
"Are you okay?" they asked with concern.
"Yeah, did you just see me totally wipe out?"
I knew it was a lie, but I was grateful for it.
