The Plinky Question of the Day is a weekly feature I added to the blog to get to know you guys better and vice versa. Sometimes the questions will deal with books or reading but, most of the time they won’t. Because, let’s face it, there’s more to us than what we read.
What's the most expensive thing you've ever broken?
Okay so I’m kind of klutzy. When I say kind of klutzy what I really mean is that I’m super duper klutzy. I bump into things on a daily basis. Sooo…I was at my aunt’s house for some sort of family function and she had a beautiful Tiffany (or imitation Tiffany) lamp, much like this one…
…on one of the tables in the living room. Well I may or may not have been rough housing with my cousin when I accidentally hip bumped the table this lamp was sitting on. As soon as I realize what happened my world started to move in slow motion. I was all like, ‘Hooooollllyyyy shiiiiiii…’ while trying to catch the damn lamp in mid-air. Unfortunately, I was unable to reach out fast enough to save it. The lamp crashed to the floor and broke into 4 or 5 pieces. My aunt was a pretty good sport about it but, I’m pretty sure she would’ve loved to at the very least shake the hell out of me. I still feel really bad every time I stop by her house and see the scene of the accident.
How about you guys? What’s the most expensive thing you’ve broken?
