ass over teakettle

I just fell down in my garage. It wasn't a pretty fall, either. I was dragging my riding lawn mower inside and not looking behind me, and I tripped on a box of some shit I haven't unpacked since I moved into the Crackerbox. I fell square on my ass and sprawled on the concrete.

It didn't hurt, but it made me feel ridiculous. I once was a nimble man. No goddam box full of unopened shit could have taken ME in my prime. But it can today.

I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. I did neither. I got up, finished pulling the lawn mower into the garage and poured myself a glass of wine. Old man, fall down. On the sofa this time.


Now, why do I hear the Dick Van Dyke Show theme song in my head?

Well, just think of it this way (with my 30th coming up REALLY fast, everyone keeps telling me I'm getting old....)


you either age or you die. That's it. No other options.
