Memory – I almost died!

sldplWhen I was in elementary school we had a tall slide on the playground that had a fireman’s pole to slide down.

One day I thought it would be fun to go across the top then down the pole head first figuring I could control my descent with my hands.

It did not go well.  I went down quickly and landed on my head.  It was a miracle that I walked away from that.  I could have been paralyzed or killed.

Fortunately for me kids of my time were much more durable than today’s’ children.

On second thought:  Maybe I DID die.  I’ve had a theory that I am living in hell right now.  I might be dead and not know it.
