Falling in the Shower
Falling down in the shower is tough one to explain. It really makes you take stock of your age and fitness level. It's one thing to complain about how you're out of shape after a jog around the lake, it's another to contemplate your physical fitness after falling down while trying to see if the water's too hot. But it's something that you can't lie about. If you go to work with a big bruise above your eye, you can't tell people it happened when a mugger hit you with an empty can of King Cobra. You have to tell the truth, because no matter what ridicule you avoided at work, you would have to admit to yourself that you had sunk so low that you would lie about falling down while trying to climb into the bathtub.
