#True Story – He fell off a ladder

Life is precious and unexpected tragedy quashes thoughts of joy.  
It reaffirms that you need to put blissful times in your life. Don’t avoid doing your will. You just don’t know when your time is up. That is this man’s legacy. 

He went to the garage and to get something off the shelf.

“He’s been out there a while” you think to yourself. “I’ll just see what he’s up to”

‘Famous last words’. If you had known what was ahead would you have walked through that garage door so nonchalantly?

He was there on the garage floor.

He died suddenly, not fading away in some manky nursing home. You know those homes. They smell of pee and people walk around with dolls that they think are babies.

There is no note. There is no misadventure. There is just the memory of you nagging him to stop relying on that shelf to reach further up from the step ladder. “It’s dangerous”, you said.
