There is a thing about new stuff that gets you wanting to try them. You know, like your first phone: never slept till i new almost half the functions, new bike: fell off but attempted to try again, new TV: pressed all the buttons till I realized there as some thing breathing down my neck and he didn’t look too pleased., new CD player: carried it everywhere till it broke. So new things just seem to have a hidden script that activates it self immediately you carry it away.
Last weekend I met my ‘nu-challenge’! It was the technological advancement that i had not yet tried. To suffice it I was excited but because I am a cool person i chose not to let it show. I circled it trying to master the technic before attempting to try it out. Through my observation I noticed that little boys were doing it well, grannies seemed to be doing fine. Saw it in movies, it looked cool and okay. How hard could it be, huh? My first mistake.
So there I go, chin up, bravado all over the place…. it all fell down (Just like London Bridge)…I tell you pressure rushed to my head, I experience an inertia greater than I could handle. Smile and cool attitude already crumbling, I struggled to regain my composure…. I all I could think of was how am i going to do this again!!
The second time round, my head still spun. I thought I had grabbed it but to my utter misery i hadn’t. I of course felt a certain gratification when i saw someone else go through what i had. I smirked, thinking to myself: ‘First timer!!’ . I would have felt much better if she hadn’t looked 12 years old!!!
All I can say is, “I’ll take stairs any day!!”
