I'm sure most of us have witnessed events that we thought were unbelieveable. What's yours?
For me it was something that happened at my Grandmother's. She lived 12 floors up, with an unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean. One day we had a family gathering and a bunch of us were on the balcony enjoying the view and talking.
My step sister had a regular glass tumbler in her hand and suddenly she lost her grip on it. It went sailing towards the driveway 12 floors below. There was a moment as I watched it hurtling towards the ground that I imagined someone walking out from the lobby below and being hit and hurt. That the glass would shatter in a cloud of glass shards was a foregone conclusion.
Then it hit the pavement, and bounced and rolled onto its side.
I went down to retrieve the glass. To my amazement it was complete, no nicks, no chips, no cracks. I brought it up and showed it to all the family members. The glass was washed and went back into service. My brother-in-law still talks about it.
