Friday Fun: Falling

Falling is funny. Painful and dangerous, but also funny. I've done my share.

My most public fall occurred in a stairwell during undergrad. After chapel, students would head down the stairs to check their mailbox on the way to lunch. One day, I beat the rush, checked my mail, then attempted to go back up the stairs against the crowd. A few stairs in, I fell hard, whole-body-down-including-head hard. Picking myself up, I caught the eyes of a good twenty-five people and laughed. In my opinion, it is more awkward to fall alone than to catch an observer's eye and laugh together.

What do you think? Have you had any embarrassing falls?
