Breaking and break dancing

window replacementsSomething a little unfortunate happened yesterday.

I was practicing break dancing in my living room, which in hindsight is never a wise idea. In fact, it’s far more a recipe for disaster than just about anything else. But, in my defense, it was raining outside and the dance studio I usually go to is on hiatus this week while the instructor is in Bali. And I wanted to practice and keep fit in a fun and energising way.

In any case, regardless of my motivation behind it, the fact of the matter is that I was breakdancing when my leg went into my window. Let me tell you, whacking into an aluminium window really freaking hurts. Anyway, it turns out that the aluminium windows in Melbourne are built pretty dodgily, because the sheer speed and force of a hectic dance move was enough to bend the thing out of shape, and now it wont close properly.

I know what you’re probably thinking at this point – something along the lines of ‘good job, Aubrey’. Yeah well … shut up. It happened, I was very embarrassed for a moment before realising no one was home to witness that humiliation by myself. And now I’m sharing this embarrassing story on the internet because … well, to be honest I’m not really sure why. It’s funny?

Long shorty short, now I need to find out where I can get a top-quality window replacement in Melbourne – like I needed one more bill to pay. Okay, that was pretty negative, but far out I just really I hate having all these stupid little accidents all the time. Just when I think I’m getting on top of everything, I get pushed back into the red. I guess that’s just part of life though. Some might say it’s one step forward, two steps back, but I like to think of it more as doing the cha-cha.
