I look ridiculous when I trip.
I know this because I tripped in front of a mirror today.
A mirror in the ladies’ bathroom at my job. Not awkward at all.
What do I look like? Well, it happened pretty fast, so I didn’t get a great look. What I can tell you is that my eyes bug out, my arms flail, and my legs resemble overcooked spaghetti noodles.
Cute, I know.
I guess I shouldn’t be too ashamed. I mean, I’ve had way more awkward experiences in a ladies’ bathroom than tripping in front of my coworkers. One time, I had a colleague actually search me out in the restroom because someone “was on the phone for me.” Uh, take a message?
Another time, I had tucked the entire tail end of my skirt into my tights. I noticed right as I stepped outside of the bathroom, so none of my coworkers saw me. Unfortunately, after situating myself, I quickly realized there had been a security camera pointed in my general direction the entire time. I couldn’t look at our building’s guards in the eye from that day forward.
But you know what isn’t awkward? This dessert. (Best transition ever, I know.)
These baked bananas (courtesy of Skinnytaste) are low fat/low carb, so they’ve got that trendy thing going for it. Plus, they’re all natural, which I’m told is big these days. But most importantly, they’re totally yummy. Like a healthy bananas foster.
You could, of course, make it a *little* less healthy with a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream. And maybe a drizzle of caramel. Oh, and just a dollop of whipped cream. Because the proven way to beat awkwardness is with a sugar coma. Trust me. I’m an expert.
