self peril

The thing about disasters is if you let yourself actually believe in them, you couldn't go on living your life. Two weeks ago an air conditioner fell on Thomas. Well, really, that's not quite accurate - and I apologize if you know me in real life and have already heard this story like seven times - it's that he fell on an air conditioner. He had taken our air conditioner out of the window and was putting it in the high closet where we keep it and - I already know how this story is a whole rope ladder of poor choices - he was standing on a chair, and the air conditioner weighs at least sixty pounds, and he dropped it, and as it fell it broke the chair he was standing on, and then he fell and landed on the sharp metal edge of the air conditioner with his forehead.
