There’s always a light side to life.. if there wasn’t, we’d die of the stress that day to day issues cause. I found tonight to be pretty humorous, hope you enjoy this story as well…
I took a client out to see a few properties. At showing number 2 of 4, I ever so gracefully tripped going up the steps. Yes, up… It’s perfectly normal in my life. It seemed harmless enough, but it was just enough force to rip the bottom, of my already-loose sandal, away from the sole. We will reference this as the “Donald Duck” look, since it was flapping freely. I almost fell flat on my face on my way out of the house, since the sole got stuck under my foot.
When I got in the car, I looked frantically for glue, tape, or staples… none of which were in my car unfortunately. So I used the next best thing: GUM. I chewed up a piece, stuck it in between the two parts of the sandal and was perfectly fine at my other two showings. I definitely had a cheesy grin on my face for the remainder of the evening. Part of that grin was due to my extreme pride for my quick thinking, the other for it actually working.
Oh, the glamorous life of a Realtor! Hope you enjoyed this story. My husband did… he laughed at me for ten minutes when I got home.
