Oh dear! I took 2 tumbles to the ground 2 days in a row recently (maybe I should stay sitting on the couch). It made me contemplate Dale's recent observation that as people get older, they 'have a fall,' not 'they fell.' It's as if it happens TO them, without them being responsible for the misstep.
First, I took a silly tumble in the woods, when I inadvertently stepped onto the end of a branch with my leading foot, with the trailing foot getting snagged by the other end of it, which had lifted up. I felt as if I'd been hobbled, and went flying forward onto the ground with a stick spanning my feet (not drawn properly)!
