Today at work, I almost fell out of my chair backwards in a manner that would have had me land on my face. A sufficient amount of windmilling was able to stave off disaster, although I somehow managed to pull my hamstring in the process.
The cynical person might assume that naturally, that's exactly when my boss walked in the office. Hah! I'll have you know that I was actually talking to my boss when this happened.
