I have an obsession. Not unusual, really, for me. I have what some kindly call “a highly addictive personality”, and what others call “crazy ass stalker” type attitude towards some things in my life. I’m not proud of it. It’s not something I share with just anyone. I hope you realize that I trust you, my dear readers, to not judge me (or suddenly de-friend me) for this shortcoming. So (big breath), here it is:
My name is Jessica, and I like to watch people fall.
Whew. I feel so much better after getting that out. Now let me explain in a little more detail. I’m not saying that I enjoy seeing people tumble down a flight of stairs and injure themselves. Or that I particular treasure seeing someone I know and love fall off a roof. Not that I have ever actually seen that. But I do enjoy a good “fall” video. I’ve expressed before my love of AFV (America’s Funniest Videos). And although I giggle at funny animals or farting babies… give me a nice, graceful fall (with mood music and witty commentary as well), I will be on the floor, busting a gut, tears rolling down my face. My six year old son takes a lot of offense to this behavior of mine. One evening, he looked at me and said, “Mom! I’ve told you it’s not nice to laugh at people getting hurt!”. Oops. My bad.:)
After the shiteous (is that even a word??) week that I’ve had, I need some belly laughs. So I’ve decided to share with you all a couple of my favorite falls. Please don’t judge me to harshly. But hey… .even if you do…. I’m probably laughing too hard to care.
Kelsey Grammer (aka Frasier) exhibiting his gracefulness. How in the world does he not curse??? “Good Lord”, what restraint.
The newscaster just makes this one. He’s a man after my own heart.
“Here she comes, Miss Ameri… oh shit!”
“All the clumsy ladies… all the clumsy ladies….”
And in closing… my favorite fall of all. Introducing Mr. Robbie Williams, who “falls over like a twat”. And that, my friends, says it all.
