Gravity Is Not Your Friend

One of the cool things about firefighting is the interesting stuff you get to do in training. The other night we practiced jumping out of windows. Awesome! This video shows one of my colleagues getting it done nicely.

Naturally, the first time I jumped out the window I dangled there like a human piñata until untangling myself. Somebody quipped, “Dope on a rope.”

It’s good to know that at 48 I can still dive out of windows and slide down a rope like a 20-year-old —just don’t ask me to climb back up.
