We have a couple of friends who shall remain nameless and this is their story.
They went to a baseball game the other night with a bunch of coworkers and it was hosted by the husband’s new company. The couple was excited about this because the wife was happy to be able to meet the people she had been hearing about. They arrived early to the ballpark and decided to walk over to the new Discovery Green that is right across from the George R. Brown Convention Center.
They were walking around and discussing things that their family and friends might enjoy about the area, when the wife who was looking off into the distance at what looked like mass dance lessons, turned just in time to run smack into a pole face first. It was too perfect to be real. It clanged so loud it rang out and caught many people’s attention. Who could have planned something like that? The pole hit her square in the face and she couldnt believe what had happened. The husband turned to her and asked, “Did you do that on purpose?” The couple was so shocked and–the wife’s face hurting-laughing so hard they immediately left the area to head to the ballpark. The sustained only a minor bump on her forehead and nose which thankfully did not bruise up.
Knowing his wife’s usual style of self-deprication and utter honesty, the husband politely asked his wfe to not share this funny tidbit with his new coworkers that she would be meeting soon. She happily obliged, but I thought I would share her story here, becuase it must be told.
I hope you laughed, because I still am.
