While on a date, you trip. Would you rather that trip land you at the bottom of a running fountain or a flight of stairs?

Stairs. The question did't say I had to fall down the flight of stairs. I chose to believe I tripped as I approached the bottom of the stairs on my way up. Thus I just tripped and fell to the ground. Little chance of injury, no chance of wetness.

Stairs. Hopefully I'm not wet after wards.

And if I am,
I hope they don't squeamishness at blood

I want to say fountain, but if it's the beginning of the date, then I would be wet for the rest of the date. I have fallen down a flight of stairs before without any significant damage, so I picked stairs.

BTW, high thick heeled boots, flare legged jeans, & stairs are a dangerous combo.

I'll take the fountain, it hurts a lot less.

Depending on the date I'll take the fountain. It's a great way to take your date home.

I'd rather end up dry and at the bottom of the stairs, but I'd rather not have been on the stairs at the time of the foot faux pas.

At least the running water would explain why have a wet crotch.

Water will dry but if you injure yourself on the stairs that could take quite a while to heal

What if you hit you head at the bottom of the fountain and drowned?

Or even not drowning, hopefully the date isn't that lame, but still could hit head. :)

Sure could, but the chances of acquiring an injury from the fountain fall are far less likely than the chances of acquiring an injury from the stairway fall. The chances of being injured on the stairs is almost a guarantee

Fountain. I've had one broken leg; I don't need any more. Not to mention a broken head.

Oh nooooo! Poor baby! I hope you both get well soon and I really hope that he isn't too sad about having been sick on his birthday! That's so sad, I'm so sorry to hear that. Get some rest and keep drinking liquids and I really hope that you are able to nurse yourself back to good health soon

I'm good, I have family visiting from Paris so I've had my hands full and I'm having surgery on Tuesday morning so I've been running a round trying to get a million things done before tomorrow while still entertaining my cousins and aunt but a lot of it has been fun so I can't complain

I don't know!!! I'd rather risk get hurt with the stairs than be wet for the rest of the date...maybe. I'm stumped on this conundrum.

The water will dry, or you could even change your clothes but the injury from the fall cld take months to heal, it could even require surgery.

While that is possible it is unlikely whereas a broken bone or broke neck from the stairs is more possible and chances are that the fountain fall would be far less harmful

Fountain. Covers up the peeing I did a minute ago where I missed anything but my pants.
