Grandma Yepros fell when she was going down the back stairs from the second floor to the first floor with a basket full of laundry to hang on the clothesline in the backyard. Grandma was blind and lived on the third floor of our two family house. Why she fell that day, we'll never know. She never fell before, she never fell again. And she didn't hurt herself, they said; perhaps they meant to say that she didn't break any bones. They said that her being fat saved her.
