    The Moral of the Story: You Are Not a Donkey

    Twice too! I was about 5 or 6, I think. I remember the kindergarten teacher had the shock of her life when my aunt brought me to school all bruised up and scarred everywhere. I mean, it was really something. I was especially mortified by the big bump on my forehead...

    Scary and Fun,

     I've fallen down stairs more then once. Thankfully I wasn't hurt just scared half to death and then laughed really hard. It's very crazy feeling to be terrified and yet when it's done and I didn't get hurt it was kinda fun.

    Not Recently

    As a little kid I was always falling downstairs. But while you're still growing your bones are kind of rubbery, so you tend to just bounce off things without getting hurt. Yay for kids!
