A chat with my body

Body: So, did you know that you slid down the steps and fell on your ass?

Me: Yes, as a matter of --

Body: 'Cause you slid down the steps and fell on your ass.

Me: Yes, I know --

Body: Just in case you'd forgotten.

Me: No, I hadn't --

Body: Because I haven't.

Me: Look, I didn't think it would be that icy. I was being careful.

Body: Obviously not careful enough. As evidenced by your sliding down the steps and falling on your ass.

Me: (sigh) Look -- here, have some hot tea and ibuprofen.

Body: Don't get the idea that bribery will work. (sip) Completely.
