Such a hilariously undignified day! I'm not someone who has these kinds of mishaps very often, I think that's why I found it so funny...
It started well. I was unloading the car to set up my market stall, and in my haste (I was unusually late) I didn't realise that the bin bag my display cube was in had slipped off while I was carrying it, dropped to the ground and I now had both feet inside it as I moved forward. You know how sometimes your brain registers something first, but the message doesn't get through to your body quite as quickly? Well it was like that. I carried on walking even as I realised I was now participating in an adult version of a sack race. It was not my most elegant moment as I lurched forwards, both feet shuffling fast in the bin bag to keep myself upright. Fortunately someone heard my peals of laughter as my momentum finally came to a halt, and released me from the bin bag while I still clutched the display cube as if my life depended on it...
I'm still laughing as I write, it must have looked hilarious!
So that was the morning. The rest of the day went relatively smoothly and as luck would have it my other potential embarrassments didn't happen until I was safely at home. I had put on a clean pair of jeans in the morning to go to the market, and you know how when things are in the washing machine the small items sometimes end up inside the larger ones, and you don't always realise it until you go to change the bed and find a clean but scrunched up sock hiding in a corner of the fresh duvet cover? You can probably tell where I'm going with this. It wasn't until I took my jeans off in the evening and something dropped out of the bottom of the left leg, that I realised I had inadvertently been carrying an extra pair of knickers around with me all day! I don't know how I hadn't noticed, or more importantly where exactly they had been lodged... I'm a fairly slim person so any extra bulge would have been quite obvious! I'm just grateful I had my jeans tucked into boots all day otherwise I may have deposited a pair of knickers onto the tarmac somewhere in public!
My final truly special moment of the day was when I removed the woolly hat I'd been wearing since dawn, to reveal the best case of 'hat hair' I've ever seen. Not only was it flat and matted, but all the hair at the back (I have a bob) had somehow swept itself up and over the top of my head like a giant comb-over, and been compressed into a sort of static toupee... Gosh, I'm glad I was alone!
So that was my day. I don't know if it's a 'you had to be there' thing, but it was really funny at the time, so do please feel free to have a laugh at my expense!
One of the culprits. The others were (fortunately) unphotographable!
