Falling is a Habit for this Poor Graduate

There are times when practicality need to take precedence over some forced cuteness. One of those times is if you are going to be graduating and walking across a football field. The video below made me laugh SO hard for so many reasons. Watch.

The first fall was like “aw damb” and then she got up and hit the ground again and I started to cackle. And then she fell once more and the crowd’s reactions to every fall had me in tears. They were strumming her pain with their “aaawwwwww”s. And that “Get Up, Diane” that someone yelled has me losing it! Like she chose to look like a “whack-a-mole” game on purpose!

Had she never worn these shoes before? Did she not practice at home to break them in? Why were her ankles like “nope. Not today.” They were not supportive AT ALL. Homegirl fell every 3 steps. ACROSS A FOOTBALL FIELD! The worst part was the fact that she was leading the pack.

Falling Graduate Diane

Talk about THE STRUGGLE! Seriously. How much falling can one person do in such a short span of time? It was like she was in a love affair with the floor. Bless her clumsy and perpetually faceplanting heart!

She really shoulda found some cute loafers of ballet flats to put on instead of punishing herself like this. Them ankles were NOT having it! Ankles outchea doing the wobble and the cha cha slide. They’re like “We out! We sick of this shit!” And they peaced out on her repeatedly. Total sabotage.

Sometimes, you gotta know that COMFORT is better than CUTE. Because if you spend your entire time in some shoes on your hands and knees, ain’t nobody see them shoes. Or care if they were fierce. She LITERALLY didn’t stand a chance in them! Girl… ha! Poor baby.

At least she smiled through it all. Congratulations to her though!

The moral of this story: Learn to embrace flats. Only rock shoes you can walk well in. When you’re going to walk across a football field, footwear is an important consideration. Heels are your archnemesis sometimes.

So umm… did you cackle or nah? What encouraging words do you have for our falling graduate?

Edit: I think her falls needs a soundtrack. A compilation of songs to help her cope.

* Fallin’ – Alicia Keys (“She keeps on fallllling innnnnnn…)
* Knocks Me Off My Feet – Luther Vandross (“There’s something bout them shoes. That makes her weak and knocks her off her feet”)
* 2 Legit 2 Quit – MC Hammer (because she never quit)
* We Fall Down – Donnie McClurkin (“She falls down, and she gets up! For a saint is just a sinner who fell down…”)

Any other additions to the soundtrack?

    I spit out my drink because I laughed too hard while watching this!! Why did none of her classmates help her though?? Lol they just watched her fall repeatedly and laughed

    • June 13, 2013 at 11:49 pm

      What would they do to help her? You go try to help her up and she might bring you down with her. LOL Nawl! Every man for himself here.

    It does my heart good to see wobbly ankles. I don’t wear high heels for this very reason.

    • rena
      June 13, 2013 at 6:47 pm

      EXACTLY, that’s why I don’t wear them either omg I cant I just cant I almost laughed my lung out.

    • June 13, 2013 at 11:50 pm

      She gotta start getting her ankles stronger cuz…

  4. June 13, 2013 at 11:37 am

    And why didn’t she just step out of line and take the damn things off? I made damn sure at my graduation that I brought flip flops in a little bag in case things got rough.

  5. June 13, 2013 at 11:41 am

    My advice would be life is going to be a little like your walk to the podium. You are going to trip up and fall a couple of times but what is going to count is getting up with a smile on your face and learning from these experiences.

    • June 13, 2013 at 11:50 pm

      Great advice. I do love that she kept getting back up. She wasn’t quitting.

      I rewatched and the “get up Diane” had me cackling all over. Like she chose to fall lol.

    I was actually there at this graduation. She fell more than the video shows. She kept falling all the way to her seat. I laughed the whole ceremony. Bent over laughing! I thought they were going to put me out!!!

    • June 13, 2013 at 4:24 pm

      Security would have had to carry me out with you, because if I were there, I would have passed out from laughter.

    June 13, 2013 at 3:37 pm

    No, you cold blooded, black hearted heathens – that is NOT funny! That child was ready to stand before her Gawd, her mama, her Auntie Mavis and all of her cousins on her daddy side and be the first one to graduate high school. Now she gotta be the first one to fall publicly on her ass on a football field. For shame, you cackling wenches, for shame!

    People that fall at graduation…*cough* or ones who stumble down the stairs after receiving their degree from an HBCU full of evil negroes that laugh and go “Damn, Brittni almost bust her ass!” *cough* should be saluted. And they should not be reminded of that shit at reunions.

    That’s my story, and I’m stickin to it 😐

      Oh, this will be the topic of every remembrance of the graduation as well as every reunion:

      “No, I don’t remember her”

      “Yeah you do, she stayed falling at graduation!”

      “Oh YEAH, I had gym with her!”

      Please, Diane, just wear flats to your college graduation and your wedding.

      I loves ya and we are family here but you best be glad I was not apart of yo graduating class…they’d a been escorting me off the premises during the ceremony and at the reunion, I just find reasons to ta bring up “The Incident”. I’s be so disrespectful and have no couth whatsoever.

    June 13, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    You thought that was funny? A girl wore stilettos to our graduation a couple of weeks ago (guess she’s was hitting the club afterwards), tripped coming across the field, & took out all 50 of the people in front of her. They had to stop the procession ’cause the rest of us had DIED laughing!

    Call me rude but I would have laughed right in her face! We would have been taking pictures after the ceremony and I STILL would have been laughing. Why would she try to wear 3 1/2 inch heels that she can’t walk in AND on a football field. She deserved to fall. JUST DUMB!

    Dear heart, have you no graduation etiquette?! Every women in creation knows that the heels are for sitting and looking pretty, but you do not, I repeat DO NOT, try to walk in them. Or at very least, walk up and down the hallway of yo house and practice, practice, PRACTICE!!!!!

    I’d straight been the ignant one and walked square over her once she fell. You ain’t messing up my diploma girl; I’s worked for this! #Chileplease

    I love my heels and wear them every day, even my flats have heels,,, but this thing here,,, Mothers, do not put your daughters in what appear to be 4 1/2″ pumps with a small platform and possibly a tiny little ankle strap for the first time EVER at graduation. Your little precious has been running around in Tims and Jordans all her life, today is not the day to turn over a new leaf,,, Get her some pretty kitten heels, tell her she is just like the FLOTUS and call it a day. Also, that’s an athletic girl right there, her ankles couldn’t take it but the rest of her kept bouncing back fine,,,

    The funny thing for me is that at 5′ I love heels and wear them as a necessity 😉 and find I trip and stumble in flats and not my 4″ heels.

And hollering at somebody yelling for her to get up….really….really oh so she on the ground by choice….Luvvie thank you for the best laugh of the whole year so far!!!! I can’t quit watching.

Black families ain’t shit.

    My side literally hurts from laughing sooooooo much! :DDD

  46. June 13, 2013 at 8:46 pm

    Looks like some shit that would happen to me. I remember during my middle school graduation, after I got my diploma, I turned and headed back THE WRONG WAY! I was goin the opposite direction of where I was supposed to be and ended up heading for the band. Everyone was like bXtch where the hell are you going?

    My face is streaming rivers. I think what truly does me in and sends me over the edge of Niagara Falls is the audience’s blow-by-blow reactions. If you couldn’t see the video and only had audio, you’d think they were watching a boxing match. “OHHH” *random scream* But the “Diane get up!”? Slaying me every which-a-way.

    See…my parents wouldn’t let me wear heels higher than two inches the entire time I was living at home so this wouldn’t have been an issue and I wore some inch and a half heels to my graduation. Now, I stay in some massive heels but I’m 27.

    Poor Diane…she couldn’t even pretend she was looking for her contact.

But hopefully I turned it around…I showed the lady next to me and she literally howled out loud. *Rubs hands together* If I go down (like the young lady in this vid), unlike her, I’m taking SOMEBODY with me lol

    Congrats to this girl for graduating though, as well as being a good sport. I won’t lie, I’d have ran off and punished me for putting on the shoes

    She looks like she tore ligaments. Whoever recorded that should have captured her limping or tipping across the stage.

    I was feeling mighty bad. I was feeling mighty low but then I seent this video and read this post…. *in my best Sophia voice*

    Personally, I have had days where my ankles have said “nope, not today”. And I obeyed, hunty! The struggle is real and you got to know when to give up the ghost…chile cheese!

    Luvvie I come to you today with a bowed head and heavy heart. I haven’t ee’um seent, yes seent this video cause my old ayyus computer is about as sorry as her unsupportive ankles. But reading your commentary was ENOUGH. Who are your parents? Do they know what you do for a living? Are they ok with your foolery? I’m asking cause only a parent or the God can help the soul who leads others to witness life’s trials and tribulations. On that note, I will continue on to pursue the viewing of this video, ONLY because you invited me to. It’s rude to turn down invitations.

    I kept yelling, “Take off the shoes and walk!” as if she could hear me. That was hilarious. I think I’ll watch it again.

    Lord have mercy Jesus. This had me in real tears. Ok first things first, after the second fall why didn’t she just stay on the ground and take those Rainbow heels off. Secondly why is the person in the background screaming get up like she is doing this on purpose.

    Well for everyone’s information i did practiced in the shoes. It wasnt the shoes but the fact that we were not on grass but slippery turf. I was laughing the entire time which caused me not to be able to gain composure after the first fall. To all who know me im no ammeture to heels in fact i perfer them over flats. I thank yu all for my views. Im a goofy girl it gave me a great memory.

      I love your attitude, Dianne! Girl, it happens. Next time, put on flats. Glad you laughed through it.

    *laughing uncontrollably whilst wiping tears away*

  68. […] falling is ALWAYS hilarious (as long as they don’t get hurt). Like this falling graduate who could NOT stay on her feet longer than 2 steps and had to crawl across the football field to […]
