This morning I visited a middle school as part of Children's Book Week. The teacher whose class I went to had missed the explanation of why I was there because she'd been out sick.

As she let me in the room, she introduced me. "This is Ms. R. I'm not sure exactly why she's here but I'm sure she'll explain it to you." Precisely at that moment, I put my foot squarely in a trash can. After I stopped laughing, I said "I guess I'm here to be your clown!"

Then, while re-enacting the moment during a department meeting later in the day, I got gum on my shoe.
