Just about 5 minutes ago I was walking from the apartment to the train station in the pouring rain.
As I reached the sidewalk staircase I began to close my umbrella. As I walked closing my umbrella I noticed a cute asian girl doing the same thing. In that single moment if noticing her my fingers slipped off of the canopy closing mechanism on my umbrella allowing the spring inside the metal shaft to shoot the canopy back open.
I was instantaneously red with embarrassment while at the same time, on the inside, laughing my ass off. As the canopy sprung open it launched all the rain on it in the direction of the girl, covering her in a shower of water. She turned to me in shock. All I could say was "I am so sorry, I am so so sorry". Without acknowledgment she just turned and walked down the staircase. As I walked behind her I couldn't help but smile and giggle.
Oh well. Maybe she'll go around and tell people how some Filipino guy got her wet this morning. Give something the office can talk about.
