While I will likely never be the first person across the finish line, there is one physical arena in which I excel: falling.
Yes, I am a champion faller with a wide range of expertise. I've fallen on ice, of course, but anyone can do that. I've mastered the rare double-sub, falling down the subway stairs and on the subway platform. I'm quite competitive in the five star bracket, having hit the ground in a fancy dress at a wedding and having gone down at a fine dining establishment, taking another patron's table with me. And of course there's the sentimental favorite, when I fell out of a chair during class. While teaching.
