Ya Shoulda Read the Fine Print, Bubba

I see that Bubba’s so forlorn. He’s too depressed to talk today. Two months in a full-body cast can keep one’s cheerfulness at bay. He donned his super hero suit and took a header off the roof (two-story!) Nothing broke his fall. He lies now, silent and aloof. He’d failed to read the tiny print: “This suit can’t really make you fly.” If he weren’t forty-five years old, I’d feel compassion—even cry.

Reminds me of Chip Gaines on HGTV'S Fixer Upper. He does things that are ill advised also for someone his age. Let's hope they start to learn for everyone's sake. :) Enjoyed.
