A Mug Falling Off A Table

My mind was wandering when I noticed the waitress across the room setting a mug of hot coffee on a table.  The mug was not completely on the table.  Most of it was off.  She was harried and distracted and the mug started the journey to the floor and a messy death.  Fortunately, the path was clear of laps and feet.  The mug gracefully swooned and went over the edge, spilling it’s steaming contents upon the shining linoleum, before hitting and shattering in a beautiful explosion of glittering shards.  A moist and rather loud beginning to the servers long day.
