It takes a certain degree of fearlessness to grab the step ladder from the garage, drag the inflatable pool to the middle of the yard, fill the pool with the garden hose, and ascend for the ultimate-super-duper-triple-spiral-back-flippy-thing.
As with any daredevil-like stunt planning is involved. And by planning I mean moving nonchalantly through the engineering and setup so as not to attract undue attention from detractors and nay-sayers (aka: mom and dad). If you’re fortunate enough to get this far — to the top of the ladder then your planning and preparation skills are highly impressive and may serve you well later in life.
The key I suppose is pulling off the stunt before you mom or the firefighters pull the plug on the whole shebang. Remember too that despite all that preparation and planning, there’s no guarantee you’ll walk away without a scratch.
But, as they say, “Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing.”
Tell that to the Docs next time you visit the ER. I’m sure they’ll appreciate your insight as they’re setting your body cast.
