I just performed TEH MOSTEST AMAZING FALL ever right there. I mean, seriously, that was one totally graceful fall, and I didn't take any damage (at least, I feel fine!). The plate on my tray, on the other hand, shattered on the tile with quite a loud noise, and the plastic cup also made its fall quite well known to the entire cafeteria.
They clapped and shouted. They always do this when some unfortunate soul happens to attract their attention by dropping plates, but I'm gonna pretend that it's because my particular show was stellar. GO ME!
