Although I was in a rush to get home today, I still tried to squeeze some time out to get Christmas presents for my parents.
So I dropped by Bt Timah to get some gifts: Red wine for my dad, and a 1kg Oreo logcake for my mum.
The logcake was quite big and I was thinking of putting the red wine inside my backpack, together with my uniforms.. But I was too lazy to take my bag off my shoulders.
So I ended up using both my arms to carry the stuff, and I wanted to get to the other side of the road to get home. The thing is, I had to get off a slope to get to the road. The staircase was about 20 metres away and I didn’t want to walk that far.
So I decided to walk down the slope.
And I slipped.
I quickly stretched out both my arms to prevent the bottle of red wine and the log cake from getting damaged. I fell on my back, and thank God my backpack (consisting of mostly my uniform) managed to provide some cushion for me, so the only impact was on my ass.
It hurt, but I got back up on my feet again and continued walking as if nothing happened. Damn those people at the bus stop. I hope none of them remembers my face.
Sometimes it pays to be lazy.
Be lazy to take off your backpack so that you won’t put the bottle of red wine in, which could end up getting smashed when you fall.
On the other hand, maybe I should have just walked the extra 20 metres.
