Actually, when I was a pregnant woman I DID tip over more than once. (Maybe I too am improbable?)

And one time I wasn’t even trying to play racquetball, just walking uphill to a legislative meeting and t[r]ipped trying to go up the curb, fell flat on my face and ran my stockings . . .

Really! Sometimes it seems like 20 years ago was a couple of lifetimes ago.

Fun fact: Just very recently, only after James Dobson left the helm, stockings are no longer mandatory for women working at Focus on the Family. You know stockings are passe when even Real ladies don’t wear them anymore. 🙂

Not only that but it suggests Dobson may have had a stocking fetish! 😉
