A girl tripped on the sidewalk today. She tripped a good 12 feet in front of me and she knows I saw her trip. She refused to look at me and smile though. Why couldn't she just look at me and smile? Would that have been so hard? It wasn't like she did a full-out bodyslam on the concrete; she didn't even fall down. She just tripped a little, something her body wasn't expecting. It wouldn't have killed her to smile. Maybe she just had oral surgery and the doctors told her not to smile for two weeks. Maybe she has a backwards lazy eye and was actually looking right at me. Maybe I'm not worth smiling at. If I had tripped, I sure would've smiled. If I had tripped, I wouldn't have been as graceful. Bodyslams are funnier.
