SLIP SLIDING AWAY

submitted by: Brooke Espinoza

On the day of the prom I was downstairs when my prom date/boyfriend pulled into the driveway. My mom quickly shooed me up the curved staircase so I would be ready to make my entrance as my boyfriend awaited me at the bottom of the¬†staircase. Well, my entrance was not the glorious¬†entrance mom had hoped for. As I took my second step from the top of the stairs, my high heel caught the carpet and BAM! I fell right on my stomach and slid down the stairs at the speed of light (my dress was satin). In one way mom got what she always dreamed of, my entrance made my date’s jaw drop.
