Once upon a time, in a land far, far away – far enough from a Starbucks (one equipped with a toilet) that warrants this rant a fairy-tale/hipster beginning – lived a girl whose name was Butter Fingers. She had the face of any ordinary girl, but possessed an extremely rare useless magical power, one that allowed her to drop everything – little or high in value – to the floor. Her fairy godmother had concluded that Darling, earth’s gravity must be a little stronger around you and had slid a card to a botox clinic before *poof*-ing off. The people in the village however, had banished her with pitchforks and selfie-sticks, to a leafy-yet-ironically-well-connected borough, after an incident at Oxford Circus station that sealed the fate, and name, of Butter Fingers.

It had been the height of rush hour, exactly five hours past the hour of noon at which the sun is at its highest – villagers retiring from a day’s work poured into the under-passage of Oxford Circus Station, all four entrances choked up to the brim. Butter Fingers had been on an excursion, one of her busier days – ending with an appointment making BLARRHGHER cupcakes and that of similar unimportance. She had shuffled along into the station with the throng, sharing in agitation with the day’s exhaustion, and joined the bottle-neck queue up to the ticket barriers. Just as she reached the double-gates and pulled out her magical oyster that grants entry, out spilled the entire contents of her bag. Keys, phones, wooden ladles, anti-bacterial gels… even the DIY cupcakes tumbled onto roadkill. Domestic/foreign coins rolled towards the escalators, and she’d lost in the Schrodinger’s cat query: Is the phone screen cracked, or intact? The station ground to a halt, and then, an uproar.

It was since that day, the villagers dubbed her Butter Fingers. Or Lube Collective, for those who remember the incident. Marinating in self-shame, she’d since thrown out all flap-less bags and stocked up on OtterBox Drop+ Protection cases, and lured a man to carry all peripherals, who she eventually married. She resorted to a life online, dedicated the rest of her life to a blog (the laptop nailed down to the desk), and lived happily ever after.

FIN.

    Dear Butter Fingers,

    I know exactly (and I mean -exactly-) how you feel. But try to keep the following in mind on your future journeys: If you embarass yourself once a day it
    strengthens your character. Hurray! That’s the bright side!
    Thinking about it, I must be strong as an ox by now. Hmmh…

    Love,

    Isus

  19. I am not worthy :O :O

  20. As someone who is equally clumsy as *ahem* Butter Fingers, I feel the pain of spilling everything everywhere. For me it’s less so in subway stations and more so in every restaurant I walk into.. forks they go flying everywhere..

    That case though, probably should get one since I have dropped and cracked my phone 5 times and counting….

  38. Interesting article. I love taking pictures of people and starting to do my own photoshoots. But sometimes my photos are not as good as I wish they would, and now I read your article with much happiness, you have so many useful tips! I am now working for an events promotion company and noticed more and more photography courses were posted. However I don’t have enough time to attend them. So your article helps me a lot, keep continue posting great articles on your blog! Thank you.

  39. Symmetry in everyday language refers to a sense of harmonious and beautiful proportion and balance. In mathematics, “symmetry” has a more precise definition
