Weeee! Carefully, I place the pot onto top of my head, keeping one hand to it as I find my balance. Success! I wobble a little; I'm still feeling slightly light-headed for some reason. I pay careful attention to the pot, moving this way and that to keep the cactus centered and balanced. Man, I'm good at this! I continue balancing until I suddenly notice that my foot is no longer touching the ground.
Oh hey, look, stairs!
I completely lose my balance and fall sideways down the stairs, rolling to a stop at the mid-point (where the stairs happen to turn). Luckily, I didn't damage either the pot or the cactus! Yes, they are perfectly safe, if dropped, back at the top of the stairs; I can see this from my horizontal position. Actually, my vision has gone a little gray, but I successfully fight for consciousness. I think I might just lay still for a moment though as I ponder my options.
What do I do now?
