Another Famous Fall
One evening I performed what I call a back bend flip spin, a spin that incorporates a back bend. Wow, said an appreciating audience. Hey, I thought, they like this so I'll do one to each of the four corners. Wow, they said after the first one. After each one they seemed more excited: Wow, WOW! As I was completing the fourth one I realized why. I had gone off center, flip spinning nearer and nearer to a table where the waiter was pouring tea, Moroccan style, from above his head to the low table. I know this because I ended up on my back on this very table. I quickly got up, looked at the surprised man seated there, said loudly "You were supposed to catch me!", and danced away.
