My hair got stuck in a sticky fly trap and other mishaps

Holidays can be stressful. Never fear, I've got a story to make you laugh.

There are many ways to make a great first impression. For example, look people in the eye when you speak to them and stand up straight. This week, I made the WORST first impression of my life. This is saying something because you know me, if anything can go wrong, it will. 

Lemme give you the details, I had an interview for my masters program as I graduate with my bachelor's next spring. The minute I walked in the door, I tripped over the rug. There was nothing graceful about my fall. It was one of those falls where you face plant. 

After making a remarkable entrance, I decided to whip out my hand sanitizer. Usually I can handle this task with zero issues but today I was so nervous, I squeezed the bottle and it erupted like the Old Faithful geyser at Yellowstone. Even crazier, it went in my eye. Lemme tell you, hand sanitizer in your eye is horrid. At this time, I have a rug burn on my forehead from the fall and I'm squinting like a pirate due to the sanitizer.

The lady who interviewed me was so kind, I think she was mesmerized by all my mishaps. We carried on with the interview. I had no idea what I said to her questions.  I was trying to survive. Plus, I was entranced by this massive sticky fly trap near the door. This trap had hundreds of dried flies. Looking back, I should have known to stay away from the fly trap. Oh no, I was nervous and me and nervousness are not a great combination. Upon standing up to exit the building, my hair got caught in her massive sticky fly trap. 

All I could do at this point was laugh hard. The dear lady followed suit. She laughed so hard her lungs started to burn and she coughed.  Don't you just hate those days where everything goes wrong?

Oh my goodness. If they don't let you into the master's program after that first impression, there's something really wrong with them. btw, did NOT know you were applying for a master's! Good for you!
