My Glass Slippers

11 Dec

I went to get a glass of water in the middle of the night. Naturally I dropped the glass and it shattered all about my bare feet on the bathroom floor. As it was the middle of the night I hadn’t bothered to flip the light on, I was relying on the night light.

Which is light blue and motion activated.

So I looked at my feet long enough trying to figure out how to walk out of the glass and wondering how there could possibly be so much of it. Long enough for my motion light to go off, and I was out of range of getting it on again.

So I stood where I was and flailed my arms wildly until I got tired. Then I attempted to drink water right from the tap.

Then I decided maybe I could sleep standing up until the sun came up or just wait to be discovered.

In the end, I turned, made a leap in what was hopefully the right direction, and just shuffled my feet out.

Did it work you might ask?

Somewhat I guess. I mean, I got a lot of glass in my feet, however, I did make it back to bed.

My feet have always been super gnarly anyway.
