On my way to work today I almost biffed it.
This whole week I had been concentrating on not falling while walking, and then it happened... I managed to dodge 3 full-sized adults and a small child AND was able to regain my balance. As I stood taller I looked around at the people surrounding me, my face hot (and red, Im sure), and the person behind me says "NICE SAVE!." I laughed, thanked them, and quickly scurried away as woman walking next to me says "You know, they can put a man on the moon, but they can't seem to find away to make the sidewalks not slippery." I love New Yorkers, they are not as mean as the scowl on their face says they are.
