By down I mean crash into a bed or other possibly soft surface and lay down. I’m beat.long day, that didn’t give me as much time to work on something for you all as I maybe should have. I feel like I owe you something. How about an embarrassing story.
When I was in 1st grade, we had to line up for the buses to leave school with our whole class. Our teacher would lead us out there. I was outside waiting for my bus. It had rained that day. The asphalt was still wet, and it was doing that thing asphalt does after a rain where all the little pebbles on the planet show up and stick to everything. While I’m standing there, an apple with one bite taken out of it bounces in front of me. So I punted it.
It bounced under one of the buses. This little kid come running up to me crying yelling, “I was gonna EAT that!” So obviously it turned into a big thing.
I was forced the next morning to walk to his kindergarten class to apologize for kicking his nasty, pebble-covered apple. I walked all the way down the hall to the room, and in a combination of fear, and righteousness, I never knocked on the door. I went back and told my teacher I apologized.
There. Does that count for anything?
Got an embarrassing story to share with internet strangers?
