He may have been changing a light bulb while standing on the bed and lost his balance. Heard of this happening before. Hope he’s ok.

I’m going out on a limb here and say that it wasn’t the penetration he expected in his bedroom.

makes me wonder if this is the most bizarre reason to be taken to the ED.

when I was in there on Friday morning, one bloke was recovering from too many drinks, apparently his busy body neighbours had called an ambulance to take him away because he was annoying them!! sounded funny in my overtired and dehydrated state!!

I’m betting it’s the last time this guy tries to engage in some acrobatic sex acts.
