Near Miss Day

So I wanted to come back and post another quick tidbit about a random holiday that most of you do not know much about or maybe you don't know anything about it at all.  Its called Near Miss Day and I just found out about it today from my handy dandy calendar in my kitchen.  This day commemorates a day from March 23, 1989 where a mountain sized asteroid passed within 500,000 miles of our lovely planet Earth.  This asteroid would have been equal to the strength of 40,000 hydrogen bombs and would have created a crater in the earth the size of Washington D.C.!  I cannot imagine the impact that would have had on the world as we know it!

The reason I knew about Near Miss Day was because I was going to write about fitness week which I did and I wanted to see what random holiday was listed on my calendar and it was "Near Miss Day."  It felt very fitting after the day I've had however the "Near Miss" that the actual Holiday is referring to is a whole lot bigger than my near miss today at work.  SO I shall explain about my near miss experience.

My near miss experience happened after lunch today...As I was walking down the hallway towards my classroom I hear a great ruckus (yelling, cursing, the brewing of a fight)... and I come around the corner and find myself in the midst of an altercation between two peers and had to intervene.  And it was a Near Miss that I didn't get punched in the face (although it was rumored that I got punched in the face)!  My wrist is hurting a bit and I was kind of pushed into the lockers but it was ultimately a Near Miss and I am quite thankful for nearly missing getting punched in the face.

After the altercation I had an insane amount of adrenaline coursing through my body.  I was shaking all over just from the adrenaline!  I was not hurt or anything but it was just such an insanely surreal experience!  After my near miss and my adrenaline high my body just crashed...I had a headache, could not focus, and was so so so tired.  So after coming home and napping for an hour and a half I am feeling much more bright eyed and bushy tailed.  I am hoping for a very uneventful day tomorrow and since it is National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day I think I will be celebrating with some Raisinets!!!  Cheers for a delightful day tomorrow!!!
