I got the funny (aching) back, put cushions on the floor to watch the
ball game or whatever on tv of an evening.
I'm lower than a couch potato. I'm a floor potato. :-)
Also in my second (and last) childhood. Fix supper, carry it in, eat
in front of the tube.
I tilt the supper plate a degree or 2 and the silverware scoots across
the shiny plate, lands on the floor, usually with part of the meal.
Anybody ever seen a no-mess "tv plate" or somesuch with maybe little
apertures for the silverware on the US market??

The monkey won the money but he scared to pick it up.
The monkey stumbled, mama.
The baboon fell.
The monkey grab the money and he run like hell!"
