True Story Tuesday- Christmas Story

I do not know if I can top the car trip to North Texas from last week. This one is from my Sr. year of highschool. I was going on a date with the drum major from our school and I think this was one of our 1st dates. He bought tickets for us to see the Nutcracker in Austin. We were both in Theater together and I was excited to see the live show. I got dressed up in my prettiest black velvet dress. (You know very 90's style with a black velvet top and a full lace skirt at the bottom.) My mom came to tell me that Kevin was waiting for me and I went to make my grand entrance coming down the stairs to my waiting date. As I pranced down the stairs I slipped in my very slick heals, landing on my rear bouncing down the last three stairs, and landing in a graceful heap at the bottom. I tore down the Christmas garland as I fell trying to catch myself on the banister. Lucky the skirt was long and full and I was fully covered as I fell. I did not bruise anything but my ego and not a rip or runner was in my hose. Kevin was the perfect gentleman and ran to help me up. He never even let out a smile or a snicker. Which is more that I can say for my parents. They thought is was quite funny. The evening was still a beautiful event. I wish I could say that was the last time I fell down those stairs.

Oh that is funny! But what a perfect guy to fall down in front of...not many would have been that much a gentleman! :)

I can so picture that! That is so funny! And your parents laughed while your date helps you up... my parents would have done the same thing! ;)

Oh my! I thought I was the only one who could "fall with style" (50 points if you know which movie that came from :)

Had to laugh at pulling the garland down... that would SO be me.

Nice guy to be so chivalrous!

Thanks for linking up and Merry Christmas!

Kevin sent me a message on fb after he read my blog.

"oh wow! I had totally forgotten about that! Just remember, very few people can fall down stairs with grace.
