No One Wants to Be Trampled, Not Even Figuratively

Survival instructions say when caught in a mob

you must spread your limbs as far as you can,

elbows out (sharp) and legs straddling an

imaginary horse. This gives you air in your little space

and prevents being trampled unnecessarily. You can

even ride the crowd on your horse if you wish,

your feet lifted by the frenzy. Another tip says that

cracking jokes helps break the stampede mood

even just a little bit. Which is exactly

what I’m doing now.
