On the way home I stopped to pick up a test result for my check-up. (I go back to the cardiologist tomorrow.) The clinic is next to a bank, so since there’s no parking at the clinic and it was after hours, I parked in front of the bank.

As I returned to the car, I stepped around a puddle of water, started to squeeze through a pillar and the front of the bank where I was parked. Except that that space wasn’t a hangover for the entrance. It was part of the bank.

I ran smack dab into a pane of glass, walloped my forehead, rattled my teeth, and banged my knee.

I had been watching the puddle, and when I glanced at the space between the pillar and the wall, there was no red stripe, no reflection to tell me there was glass there.

If there was a video outside the bank, I’m going to appear on one of those websites where people do stupid things.

Now the doc will really find something wrong with me tomorrow.

  1. “A merry heart does good, like medicine…” (Proverbs 17:22)

    I don’t know if Solomon ever walked into a building but if I could just learn to laugh at my mistakes more often I’d probably stay healthy for a very long time.

What do you think?
