Five seconds before this photo was taken outside the mall yesterday, it was the scene of great hilarity.
Not for the fellow who performed an involuntary flying leap, worthy of a Loony Toons bit, a mere ten feet away.
I had already pulled out my camera, planning to take a photo of the trail my shopping cart had carved into the crusty ice when a young man rushing from his car to the mall entrance swiftly entered my field of vision. Probably not the smartest move during an ice storm, for soon he had totally lost control of both his body and his dignity.
Suffice to say, it was akin to watching an R-rated Goofy spill, arms and legs akimbo, slip sliding away, twisting and turning, trying in vain to regain his balance or at the very least, his composure before landing smack dab on his butt.
All the while yelling at full volume:
*uck. *uck! *UCK!! *UCK!!!!!
I successfully refrained from laughing out loud.
And from the temptation to photograph him whist in full flight.
Because if it weren't for that shopping cart which I was holding onto for dear life, that would have been ME somersaulting through the parking lot too.
