Nailed it!

I was getting ready for Ladies Day at Kilbeggan Races.I attempted to put on my favourite dress that I had last wore in May. It refused to zip up.
Alas, a side effect of a month's holiday in America.
There was a rapid root through my wardrobe to find a change of outfit. This left me less time to get ready. As I raced out the door I put in two tubes of glue into my bag, one for my false nails and one for my false eyelashes!
Hoping I wouldn't get them mixed up!

In Kilbeggan I was in deep conversation with my friend. I felt a tap on my shoulder and a lady asked me
"Have you been chosen for the final of the Best -Dressed?".
"No!" I replied excitedly.
"Here is a wrist band to gain entry to the marquee."

I obviously extended my wrist too eagerly. As she was about to clip on the wrist band I gasped in horror.
My thumb nail went whizzing past her ear!!!
She recoiled in horror.

Needless to say I didn't win!!!

I was reminded of the old nursery rhyme.

For want of a nail - 
For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a nail.

But in this case it should go...
For want of a nail a free trip to New York was lost!!!
