|Yes well, this lady had the right idea|
........So I was watching the children jumping on their trampoline and thought I remembered a few moves from my high school days I could show them. Reassured that I had recently emptied my bladder, I climbed aboard and thought I would begin with a jump to the sitting position, so I launched myself to a decent height, raised my legs to the straight position, horizontal to the ground and then descended. Ouch!??!! Somewhat shocked, I realised that on landing my 67 kg weight had caused the springy trampoline to hit the ground underneath, thus dealing me quite a wallop on my bottom, jarring my spine a bit and almost winding me. Too late I remembered that the tramps at school had been chest-height and this children's one was only - about 18" above ground level. More haste, less speed, more brain. Such are the penalties of wanting to show off.
