I took Tim to swimming lessons last week. He yelled up to me and I walked down the concrete steps to answer him. I turned around to head back up and tripped. Up. I tripped up the last step. I hit my knee, ankle, elbow and watched my water bottle roll away. I sat down. Hands folded in my lap.
Eyes staring straight ahead. Taking deep breaths. Pretending that I did not just do that.
I saw a friend and asked if she had just seen me trip. No? Ok good. I wandered over to a young mother to admire her baby and ask if she had just seen me trip. No? Ok good. Chatted with a grandma and asked her if she had just seen me trip. No? Ok good.
I am going with this. If nobody sees you trip it didn't happen.
