I fell down the stairs at Sissy's house.
Judging by the reaction of her friend's daughter and the multiple bruises on my backside, it wasn't a graceful fall.
I don't really know how it happened. One minute I was walking down the stairs, the next: my life was flashing before my eyes.
Maybe not quite that dramatic, but it did seem like the world went into slow motion and the bottom of the staircase was a long ride down.
I don't really know why I told you that story.
I'd like to tell you it's because I wanted to tell you that no one is perfect.
Or that we have to laugh at ourselves.
But really, I just wanted to tell you that I fell down the stairs and I survived to tell the story.
