i have fallen so many times. ice skates were often involved. or alcohol. generally, i was wearing winter boots with lots of traction, but sometimes not.<br />
the last time it happened, i was walking downhill in front of my building soon after a fresh snowfall, when i went *** over teakettle and landed on my butt. i must have hollered as i was going down, and some nice lady asked me if i was okay and offered to help me...that probably hurt my dignity more than the fall.

I had boots on I believe.
I slipped in a driveway that was on an incline, I went partially under the car. I don't remember what shoes
