The Day I fell off of a building
Years ago when working on a construction site I had a experience I still remember on occasion and wondered how the hell I survived it, it was way back. so far back I have a hard time believing it is that long ago.
I wanted to be the first in the construction project while others waited for the super to open the building up,well it was a bad idea. and I took a short cut to get up the second story fired the ladder up and whipped up the thing and quickly got to the ledge, and started slamming on the plywood nailed from the inside) it was where the windows were going to be replaced ,boing, like a sling shot away I went, flying away I went falling by the massive junk container hit some branches, a tall columnar cedar tree then narrowly missed the rebar sticking up out of the disposal bin and fell onto some insulation and went, well that was a near impalement. While sliding down , well i saw the traffic on the road come to a stop watching me go down ,I caught a glimpse of this while falling. That was a good lesson as a young guy trying to be smart, what a scare.
