Timeline: A beautiful, sunny Sunday in the month of April, the year of our Lord, 2013.
So, as is commonplace with me on Sundays, for as long as I can remember, I dragged myself lazily, a tad begrudgingly outta my cozy littly, pretty comfy bed. Rudely jerked awakened, outta my sleepy state by my phone alarm! Yeah, sure, the phone musta somewhat set the alarm itself, like I had absolutely nothing to do with it! Psst!
Anyway, that’s by the way! Story for the gods!
You see, my Church of worship is one of those mega parishes with a very large congregation, thus; the need for two power services every Sunday. My service of choice is the first, running from 7:30am through 9:30am.
The second takes longer, which makes the first all the more appealing to me. Well, don’t gimme that look, you’d probably do the same were you in my shoes, I think! Whatever!
So, I quickly gingered myself up and got into the nitty-gritty of things, trying as fast as I could to move things right along! Arriving late was not part of the plan!
More haste, less speed they say! Perhaps if, just if I’d slowed down a teensy-weensy bit, I’d have noticed something was totally off ’bout ’em shoes I chose to pair up with my ensemble of choice! *sighs*
You see, I’d pretty much abandoned the pair of ’em on the rack for ’bout six months running, totally out-of-use! So tell me this, however could I have known that it was close to coming apart?! I mean, from my standpoint, they looked perfectly alright to me! Very well put together I must add! Or so I thought!
I get dressed, make-up flawlessly in place. I daresay, but I looked every inch the part! Pretty spruced up like a well marinated and dressed, stuffed Thanksgiving Day turkey; just raring to go! Except well, unlike the turkey that’s taking a trip down the arch; I, on the other hand, was going to take on the world! I head out on my jolly way, feeling like a gazillion pounds!
What could possibly go wrong on a beautiful, glorious day such as this one?! That was the furtherest thing from my mind! Things couldn’t be more ‘purrfect’!
Nothing and noone coulda prepared me for what was ’bout to happen next!
