I was eating lunch at my desk (as always),
and had just taken a bite of tuna salad,
when I started to sneeze.
I knew there was no stopping it…
I knew I was nowhere near a tissue…
and I knew it was going to be ugly.
So I grabbed the (really large) trash can from under my desk to sneeze into.
My eyes shut, and I tried to (quickly) bring it toward my face.
It hit the underside of the desk.
I jerked backwards in my chair,
(all of this happening in slow-motion in my mind)
and managed to get it out from under the desk.
Eyes still closed,
I had used just enough force while pushing myself backwards
to fall out of my chair…
and just enough force pulling the trash can up that
I whacked myself in the head with it.
Kind of makes you feel better about yourself now, doesn’t it?
