Humans Can Fly...So I Thought


Growing up, I was a huge fan of comic book characters that fought crimes. It was the best memories of my life. I grew up thinking that humans can fly. After all, when I grew up around Spider-man, Harry Potter, Batman, Superman, Iron Man, and many others, I began to develop that mentality that humans can fly.

One day, I decided to see if it was true.

My parents dropped me off at my aunt's apartment while they went out to go do whatever they went out to do. I was five years old at the time. She lived on the second floor of the complex. My aunt had this walkway outside her side window. I wouldn't call it a balcony, but it was large enough for anyone to walk on. It was big enough to fit five people.

All of a sudden, I got an automatic flashback about going forward with my theory that humans can fly. When I saw that walkway, I found an opportunity ready and waiting. I got up on it and my realization finally came with results.

I jumped off the walkway and landed on my stomach in a pile of dirt. It wasn't until two seconds after crashing that I started to cry like a little baby. It really hurt for a small kid. The only good news about the whole situation was that I realized that humans can't fly.
