Behind the Back

Earlier, as I was walking back to my desk, I had a red Sharpie in my hand that I use for marking up pages, and I decided to toss it up in the air behind my back, spin around, drop back into my chair, and catch the pen, which had rotated several times in the air, in my hand, in writing position, ready to proof. Because that's the type of thing that I do. I think my success rate at this type of thing is usually pretty good, but in this case I was off by about 18 inches. Instead, the pen dropped on the back side of my monitor, hitting my mosque alarm clock and sounding off the chanting alarm.

A moment ago, I was in the kitchen, and I crumpled up the wrapper from my veggie wrap, and tossed it across the room behind my back into the garbage can for a perfect swish. I thought it went unnoticed, but my friend Hattica saw the whole thing.

As far as I'm concerned, I'm 2 for 2.

Okay, so you were 2 for 2 today. I'd say overall you're about 50/50 on these types of antics.
