Today my sister called me to tell me a little story that she had been told. She said she had to laugh when the person mentioned that he had felt as if he had been stuck in a cartoon, in that case in the old peoples' home from The Simpsons. Said person didn't find it as funny, but as a story it was.
Have you ever been in a situation that made you feel as if you were stuck in a cartoon, a slapstick movie, a drama or whatever?
Being a big klutz at times, I sure have felt like my own stuntwoman before, like the time I slipped on ice on a ramp at the zoo, the wheelbarrow went up and almost buried me.
Welllll, there was the time a couple of months ago when we were out thinning trees. I was trying to drag a small tree down the hill by a branch. The branch snapped off and gravity did it's thing. I tried to get my feet under me but the momentum was too great and I took a lovely roll down the hill before landing face first in the dirt.
Hubby said everything seemed to go into slow motion and it looked almost as if I had purposefully launched myself down the hill.
