On Losing

I am the quintessential version of the person that will be standing by the side of the road, and have a bus drive through a puddle right next to me, coating me in wet slime from the street. This happens a lot. Definitely more than it should.
Today I was walking along and I stood on a loose paving slab, it tipped, throwing a slop of shitty, muddy rainwater filth all over my shoe and leg. It was a busy street and I could feel their eyes on me. I hate these kind of incidental personal humiliations, and yet they always seem to happen to me. Bummer.
