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.
What if Im just not built to be an Alpha Male? #WeAreTheProblem
