I’m not sure the reason why I am the way I am, but for some reason I have always been a very uncoordinated and dangerous type of person.
Some people are naturally fast or musically gifted, and I am only good and messing things up on accident. I have a habit of dropping things, I always stumble over my own two feet, and I am generally bad around anything that involves care and caution. This flaw of mine recently came to bite me in the rear end last weekend while I was back at my parents house dog sitting for them. It was a normal Saturday night and I was just watching a movie. As I was taking my dishes to the kitchen I ended up stumbling over the air conditioning unit, causing a huge amount of soda to fall directly into the air conditioning unit. This was particularly bad because this air conditioning unit had just been purchased and installed less than 48 hours ago. Even though I was terrified I ended up calling my parents to let them know what happened and to ask for help. At first they thought I was joking, but once they realized that I was 100% serious they were less than impressed. My parents are very understanding people and they will be able to have the A/C unit replaced in no time, but I think it’s safe to say that I will most likely be moved to the last option they reach out to the next time that they need a dog sitter for the weekend.
