Me at 12: I'll just use the pillow case to slide down the stairs. Much fun!

Me at 40-something: I'll just walk down the stairs in my socks, cause it's cold.

Don't get old, kids.

Update, this has produced an adorable bruise on my left buttock and it's taking everything I have not to post a butt selfie.

I hope you heal up quickly and your pain meds are effective

@paulgatling I'm at the "finding all the new and funny ways to say 'I broke my ass' while holding a smile on my face" phase.

Getting old isn't glamorous, this I'm learning in new ways very frequently..

@saramg i got warm socks with sticky soles for *exactly* this reason 😆

first time i slipped on the stairs it scared the bf half to death thinking i'd died

@robey Meanwhile my wife walked over cackling because it was evidently quite funny.

I used to have grippy socks, but then I stopped wearing socks regularly and fuck knows where they're at.
