This entry doesn't really relate much to the usual content of my blog, but I just felt it necessary to start this new segment called 'The Misfortunes of MacKenzie.' Which contrary to how it sounds, is by no means a deep or meaningful post. See, I am by far one of the unluckiest people around… if you don't believe in luck, well, for lack of a better explanation, I generally get the shit end of the stick on most occasions. These occurrences are merely trivial, and as my friends would explain, humorous… i'm actually starting to believe that they hang around me just to sit back and laugh at my moments of extreme awkwardness and discomfort… (just kidding, I love you guys.) 

See, I am that short girl you see walking down the street, whose umbrella has just configured itself inside out…and as she tries, with all her might to bring it back to it's normal form, falls into a puddle that has miraculously formed in front of her (yes, it has happened on more than one occasion.) Meanwhile, the rest of the world is walking by with their umbrellas perfectly intact, and wind blowing majestically through their hair like they are on a movie shoot…mines plastered across my face, affecting my vision, most likely the reason for my tumble into the peculiarly deep puddle. 

I have come all too accustomed to looking up at my friends after one of these mishaps, to see them sporting these expressions that convey a sympathetic smirk… that of one you'd usually give a puppy who tumbles and falls on his butt as he tries to grasp the concept of walking…And after the last few days, and frequency of these moments… I realized twitters 140 characters didn't allow me to share these stories to their full potential, alas, welcome this new segment… because why should my friends be the only ones who get a chuckle at my expense?
