It was a fine and sunny Sunday. The night before it had rained heavily, so there were muddy puddles on the road filled with brown water. I was walking on the streets to go to the Basketball ground when suddenly, I almost fell into a puddle.
I thought it was my lucky day because I had stopped myself in time and I kept going until I reached the park. However, while playing, I slipped and fell. I was completely covered in mud, but continued playing. Then while running, I fell in another puddle and couldn’t believe what was happening with me.
Everyone walking across made fun of me as I was caked in mud. When I reached home, my mother was astonished as she couldn’t recognize me at first. I took a shower and then decided to wear my new t-shirt. But then, again I slipped and this time, I fell on my sister’s muddy shoes. I couldn’t believe that my new t-shirt was ruined.
After that moment, I started walking very carefully and did not go to my dance class which was in the evening, as it was a bad day for me.
