Never Thought It Could Happen In Real Life
grade 8 sometime/04
Okay, so it started out as a normal day in Jr. High. I was wearing my favorite pair of jeans. I had them for a long time.
In the middle of the day it was time to go to I.A.T (wood working class or w/e) We were making little wind up cars at the
time. If we weren't I think i would still have those pants... Me and my friend Carissa were testing our car out in the
hall way. After a few tries we almost gave up because it would go farther then 10 feet. I decided to give it one last shot.
So we wound it up and got on our knees to put it on the ground. As we did I heard a huge RIP coming from behind me.
Now I must remind you I don't get embarrassed easily. So we just stopped for a second and I asked her "Was that my pants
ripping?" and then she just nodded. Thank god we were the only ones in the hall at the time. If we weren't I might have been
a little embarrassed. We laughed for the longest time. I'm even laughing to myself right now writing this. After
that, I slowly got up, and of course surveyed the damage. I
put my sweater around my waist and went sraight up stairs to my locker. I got my gym pants and changes into those and then
went back downstairs. I thought to myself that I didn't want to wear my gym pants for the rest of the day so i went to the
F.S.T lab. I waited at the door till the teacher asked me what I would like. I said quite loadly, because it was just the
other half of my class in there, that I had ripped my pants. Some people laughed and I took a bow, then everyone clapped.
She walked me over to the sewing mashine and she showed me how to fix them. Since I got like a 90 in sewing I did it myself.
I changed back into my jeans, now nicely fixed and stonger then
ever. I don't really remember ever learning a lesson from that. The only one I can thing of is; shit happens that you can't
avoid and sometimes you just have to laugh at it.
By the way, a few months later I had to throw the pants out
anyway, it was just their time... whatever that means.

Doesn't matter when it happened/04
Okay my mom and I went to the mall. Are you with me so far? Ok. We did some shopping blah blah blah. As we were walking
to the car, I geuss I put my sunglasses on or something. Either that or I wasn't paying attention to where I was walking.
I walked aorund to the passengers side because I'm nice enough to let my mother drive. Anyways yada yada yada I slipped on
a banana peel in the middle of a parking lot and really hurt my ass. My mom thought it was funny as hell but I only saw the
irony in it. I mean I didn't really think that you could actually slip on them. I thought it only happened on T.V. but I geuss
not. It makes anew meaning of the saying; don't believe everything you see on T.V. I am a retard.
