Certain Disaster...


Its gonna happen.
It may not be today. It may not be tomorrow, or even this month. But before the end of 2008 these stairs at my work are going to do me in. This is only one of three flights that could kill me sometime soon. Sure they are beautiful and shiny in their quasi spiral form. But beauty is dangerous and once you take a tumble it is going to be hard to stop yourself. I try to avoid them at all cost by using the back stairs, but every once in a while it they are simply inevitable. A number of times when I have been on them I have had some close calls - a waver or a tremor, if you will, and once even a micro stumble. It's as if they are saying "I will get you yet, but just not today." I can only ask that no one is around for the humilaition. I also ask that I don't break my coccyx. I would rather have a toe cut off than have to sit on a donut for 6 months. Either way I suppose my certain fall will be a justified pay back from this..

You're "Secret-ing" your way for this fall!!!

I knew it. I knew that your laughter at others' expense is haunting you. At least it hasn't gotten you yet. The other day, I laughed at all of these misfortunes I saw and my car almost ran out of gas. So that was, like, pretty close.

Well it probably has as much power as secreting myself not to fall...

You should get a sleeping bag and some couch cushions and make like a sweetass slide thing down the stairs.

I have a friend who broke his coccyx and sliced his wenis in the same day.

I still think you should take a picture and blog about the tunnel slide you got stuck in.
