This week's prompt: slip
Right away, being a girl (though not a girly-girl) and all, I thought of the undergarment. I don't wear dresses much and it's a toss up as to which is more responsible for that, pantyhose or slips. Slips, in my book, are uncomfortable and hot, especially in warmer weather. Static cling seems to be a natural partner and it's a pain to always be tugging at your dress and slip to keep from showing more than you intended.
The old slip and fall is something I'm very good at. One Friday afternoon in February we had a flash freeze. It really wasn't cold enough to freeze and yet, for just a few minutes, everything did. I happened to arrive at work during those few minutes and when I stepped out of my car.....whooosh!.....next thing I knew I was on my hands and knees in the parking lot with stars and little birdies circling my head. X-rays showed no serious damage, but still it hurt and I was finally getting past it when a couple of weeks ago we stopped by the medical office of a friend and I stepped on a carpet runner and it took off under my foot, sliding across the floor and halfway up the wall. I went down again. On the same knee. Back to square one.
The last slip I can think of is a pink slip. Those can be good or bad. You don't want to get one from your boss, but you do want one for your car.
"And if that ain't enough to make you flip your lid, there's one more thing....I got the pink slip, daddy!"
Now I'm just going to slip on out of here!
