However, at our last late lecture, one of my housemates, bless her heart, seemed to just be having a bad day. She placed her smoothie on the long bench that acts as our writing surface. It was then jolted and the open smoothie then slipped off the side, and into her open bag on the floor below.
And it went everywhere! And when I say everywhere, I really do mean everywhere! Spattered across the seats, strewn across the floor, dripping off her bag. And to make matters worse, this smoothing was the strongest green colour that showed up fantastically against the light colours of our lecture theater seats and carpet! There was no hiding what had just happened, and even less chance of cleaning it up in the two minutes we had until the lecture began.
She just stared at it for a long moment, as though not quite absorbing what just happened - as though not willing to believe it. Then she sat down, and took a moment to come up with some kind of game plan. After a brief pause, she got back up, swept up her things in an attempt to save her notes, and the other contents of her bag. Then she bundled her things together, having decided the lecture theater was not the place, and left, not to return for the rest of the hour.
It was deemed that the book was beyond rescuing, but it certainly made for one of the more childish walk homes we've ever had, teasing each other by waving the book in each other's direction. Something that put a smile on my face after a long day - so it goes to show there is a silver lining to every little disaster. It even made my housemate smile when she got the book back, laughing at the idea we carried something so gross all the way home with us.
Hope this story made you smile. See you soon King fans, have a wonderful day!
