    Just In Time Too...

    I was rushing up some steep stairs with my hands full, and forgot about the step that sticks out at the top. Going full speed my foot caught on it, and I think I flew for a couple seconds. Then my chin hit the stair...

    Grace and Talent

    I believe it takes grace and talent to fall Up stairs, and I have plenty of both because I do it regularly!  I got my best scar ever falling up stairs in a nice dress and high heels -- took a nice chunk right out of the front of my lower leg!   It was...

    First I Fell Up...

    And then I failed to catch myself in time and fell down too!   Warning for people who are envious of my talent: the clapping wasn't very loud.

    Skip The Trip

    A lot of the time it's because I've tripped on my pants or skirt. Only once or twice has it been because I've tripped on the stairs themselves. There is something about stairs that brings out my inner klutz 'cause I have tripped on pants that were very similar to skinny jeans. I...

    Walked into a sliding door - several times.

    Tripped over a fire hydrant, walked into a bunch of stuff. I've even climbed into the backseat of my car when i was the driver. Slipped on high heels and I regularly stumble over my own feet.

    More Than I've Ever Fallen Down Them.

    That's right, I fall up stairs much more than down them.  I think If I'm trying to run up stairrs it is a lot easier to trip going up than down.  Luckily the fall isn't nearly as bad.  I know a couple people who died falling down stairs, but that's...

    I fall up the steps on a near weekly basis. Usually when I have a drink of some sort on my way up to my room. It has somewhat become a way of life. For some reason my feet, slippers, and our stairs don't get along well at all.
