An Ex-gymnast with a well paying job?
Why can't I find a woman like that?



I'll just steer clear of the "fall for a girl like that" line.

I immediately thought the same thing -- "was she celebrating her promotion?"

If I was 28, had just won my first big case and got a promotion to boot, I would be celebrating too - and probably with a drink or two.
So I wonder....


Very sad story indeed.

Why would she sit on the banister you ask. Why do people drive 100 plus mph boats. When you dont fear it, you embrace it. When my father was in Vietnam, they used to fly in the cargo planes and open up the top cargo door in the rear of the plane. Then they would sit there with their feet hanging out the rear of the plane, while in flight, over Vietnam. No tethers, parachutes or anything but gravity holding them there. Sounds kinda like fun to me.

I agree with GLH.

It was steps and excessive speed

I would recommend that her family get a lawyer and sue

Sue the builder for putting the balcony in and sue the street paver for the ground being so damn hard...
