If we are having a coffee, then probably we aren’t good friends. 🙂
But if we are having tea, I would tell you that I started my day by spilling water over my manager’s desk and his $200 brand new leather bag. We laughed it off, or maybe I was the only one laughing. He now keeps his water bottle tightly capped.
This isn’t the only time I spilled liquid you know. The last time I spilled tea, three desks in my area had to be cleaned. Luckily it was just green tea.
Did you know that I can’t walk wearing headphones and simultaneously listen to a song. I end up crashing into trees and electricity poles. My attention span is the size of a teaspoon.
Talking of crashing into things, I still remember the glorious year of 2001 when I was walking with this handsome hunk along the school corridors. I was so engrossed admiring his face and listening to his deep baritone that I smashed head-on into a pillar. Who builds a pillar right in the middle of the corridor!
Do you want some more tea? My husband got me some amazing Blue tea by Teatonic, which I usually mix with green tea. Let me pour you some. Knowing my flair for spilling and dropping things, he got me a double sealed tin container instead of a normal packet of loose leaves. 🙈
It’s not easy when you are clumsy as eff. The things you take for granted comes really hard to us, like cycling on road without ending up with stitches, or admiring a massive wine glass without accidentally hitting it against the wall and breaking it.
Or even making a good impression. Around a decade ago when I joined my first job, my manager had called me to his cabin. I happily went in there, stood near his table and accidentally made his expensive looking glasses fall off the table. I have no idea how I manage to do that. Maybe there’s a gravity around me that makes thing drop like apples.
I have saved the Best one for last. I used to live with two other girls in a paying guest accommodation. It was after midnight and we both were tired. I was thirsty so I took my bottle and filled my mouth with as much water as I can. My friend cracked a joke, I choked and splashed her with a gust of water straight out my mouth. She had to take take a bath at 1 in the morning. I seriously have no idea why she is still my friend 😂
I hope you enjoyed this tete-a-tete over tea. Don’t worry I will not spill tea over you. 😀
