At one of the casinos in the state last weekend, I stepped out of our car the same time a young girl was exiting the vehicle ahead of us.

She said something to me that sounded like, “Are you with the ballet?”

You can imagine what happened next. My toes, ankle and knee buckled, in that order, all under the pressure of my added weight, and down I went. The car had started rolling ahead when I rushed to start my ballet pirouette.
