After once again falling down the stairs, a list will show me that there's no way to prevent it.
  1. With socks
  2. Without socks
  3. On carpeted stairs
  4. On wood flooring
    By far, this one is more common.
  5. Holding a cookie
    I crushed it while falling and @somthinboutmary said, "That's the way the cookie crumbles." It was terrible all around.
  6. Carrying a mug of tea
    I threw it while in the air and landed in the puddle so my butt was bruised AND damp.
  7. Up the stairs
    When you go forward and those bastard stairs catch you on the shin.
  8. Wearing my mom's high heels
    I was also like two years old.
