I’m re-watching all of the Godzilla movies, Wednesday was the first 1954 release, Gojira. This black and white un-subtitled masterpiece spoke more to the theme of the horrors of nuclear weapons then the spectacle of Japan getting eaten by a lizard. This may be why, when pretending to be Godzilla chasing after the Shar-pei to stomp him and everything he holds dear, I fell down the stairs.

I’m sure even Godzilla had problems with stairs.

During my fall I managed to get my tiny T-Rex arms under me to break the fall. I then slid down the full flight of stairs on my butt and elbows. Whilst still making dinosaur sounds. The dog, thinking he just brought down Godzilla promptly attacked in a playful manner to score some brontoburger.

Flash forward to the gym the next day.

A gym bud noticing my severely carpet burned and scabbed elbows says something like “Hee-hee, carpet burned elbows hu? Wow! You must have had fun.” This is when I stated something like “yeah, you should see my ass, black and blue. I took a pounding, man am I sore.” I found it odd that when I turned to explain how I fell down the stairs he had busted into laughter and just walked away.


Minutes later…..

“OH MY GOD! He thinks I got the carpet burns because of…… And I said…. Man! I said I took a pounding!....... black and blue.

My life as it has been lived with dignity.
