TO CATCH A FALLING STAR

MURRAYS TUMBLE DOWN THE MOSTAR GUARD TOWER STAIRCASE

17 °C

Murray is many things to many people. He is a lover. He is a friend. He is a weird guy that lives across the street that for some reason doesn't stop staring at you. But above all, he is the sun that warms the hearts of people that know him. And what is a sun? Merely a star that has not yet faded. Until now.

Many people hold Murray in high regard. For what, I'm not sure. Maybe it's his uncanny ability to stay calm in any situation? Maybe it's his smile that people think he doesn't know any better because he seems to have a lower IQ? Or maybe it's the fact he has a bent wang that is often referred to as 'The Bent Artichoke.' Anyway you look at it, Murray seems to be held aloft in many people's eyes. And it is from these lofty heights that this unsuspecting hero found himself falling faster than the soap in a prison shower.

The boys had been enjoying a beautiful afternoon in Mostar, Bosnia, a medieval town devastated by a war of yesteryear. As they toured the museum, a fortified guard tower on the famous Mostar Stari Most, they lads chuckled away at how nothing had changed between the tools used between the ages. They had simply been updated but not altered. It was soon to be learnt that stairs were something altered by time. Trent felt that he had seen enough, heading down the steep staircase, winding 5 floors below, to speak to the attendant to see where else they could get into for their money. As he spoke, he heard a crashing sound, followed by a thump, thump, thump, thump, and he looked up through the staircase above to see a skinny left foot pertrude the railing. Trent smiled. It was hard not to. The attendant looked at Trent, the smile beaming on his face and he too chuckled. From above was a howling groan. It sounded like a womans. Very lady-like. Trent had heard it before but it bought a bigger smile to his face. The Bosnian attendant on the front door could not hide his excitement. He ran and yelled something from the door, as if mocking the woman that he thought had fallen down the stairs and he wanted everyone in the old square to know about it. Trent ascended the stairs amd tried to comfort Murray's sobbing but could not. The attendant grabbed a bottle of water and helped Murray down the stairs. He couldn't stop laughing as he poured the water over Murray's very minor scratches.

Oh, how the mighty do fall!!!!
