I would not want to be...

the woman who fell on top of a rare Picasso painting in the New York Museum of Art, and tore a 6 inch hole right through the center....

I would not want to be her tonight....

and if I was her, I would make up a heroic story like I don't know....

that I was across the hall, far, far away from that painting when I noticed someone choking besides it at which point I ran as fast as I could to save them...and while performing the Heimlich maneuver I accidentally nicked, slightly nicked the canvas with my elbow--but saved a human life in the process --and isn't that all that really matters? Isn't it?

I would not admit that no such heroic feat had passed before that rare piece of art, and that I actually stumbled on it because I cannot balance myself for the life of me--or in this case a priceless piece of history.

I heard about that! Talk about horribly embarrassing moments. I think I'd try to get into the witness protection program after that one.

LOL! I thought the same thing when I heard that but I am wondering why it was even possible? Why wouldn't you hang it on a wall, way up high, under some fantastic lighting?

I'd absolutely freak. Omg. I'd like seriously go into hiding because you never know with like secret societies that protect these paintings. Omg. Poor girl. Stupid, but poor girl.
