What if my top 5 best near death experiences teach me nothing? #5 CONCRETE SLIDE #WeAreTheProblem



I overthink everything to make the world a happier place

What if my top 5 best near death experiences teach me nothing?

#5 CONCRETE SLIDE


My Top 5 Best Near-Death Experiences

"5. RACING SAMMY UP THE COUNCIL ESTATE CONCRETE SLIDE."

Camden Council built our Estate in 1966.
They also made a kids playground.
Entirely out of concrete.

The slide was a cast iron main sewer pipe embedded in a mini tower of brutalism.

I know. Just like Cinderella's Castle.

Around 1978, I raced my mate Sammy to the top and then woke up in our 10th Floor flat.

For research, I asked my Dad about this and he remembers it was definitely a Sunday.

Because he came home from the pub and I was on the sofa with a bag of peas on my head.

Also, when I went to school next day they said it's probably best I went to hospital.

What have I learned?
Don't chase mates up concrete slides, and something something something something.

Next time, Canal Boat Crush.
