These are the elevators in the P2 parking level of my building. As you can see the flooring has a repeating pattern of "granite-carpet-granite-carpet".
The other day I came into the building to hear the elevator ding and so I began to run so that I could catch it. I came around that corner and my boots must still have been a little bit wet from the snow and so I SLIPPED! on the granite, but caught myself on the carpet before I fell down and also before the attractive business-y type man who was getting onto the elevator saw me. I slowed my pace but still briskly walked toward the elevator so he wouldn't have to wait long.
And then I SLIPPED! again on the next set of granite. This time I let out a loud "WHOOP!" and now the attracitve business-y type man saw everything and I still didn't fall down but it was a whole body slip and a loud "WHOOP!" so naturally I was very embarrassed.
I spent the entire 10-floor ride up the elevator explaining loudly and out-of-breath-style that I had "ALREADY SLIPPED BUT YOU DIDN'T SEE ME AAHAHAHAHAHA I THOUGHT I GOT AWAY WITH IT AHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA AND THEN I SLIPPED AGAIN!!! HAHA!!!!! AHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA"
