If you fall I will catch you.
Like last time?
Yes, like last time.
But last time was painful.
It would have been more painful had I not been there to catch you.
I’m not so sure.
Don’t be ridiculous.
I was expecting you would catch me in a soft embrace, but it felt more like I was falling into a blanket of steel wool.
Well, it would have hurt more if you had fallen to the ground.
I don’t think so. In fact if I fall again, please do not catch me.
Don’t be foolish. Who says “no” to help?
I’m saying “no” to help, the cost is too high.
I’m helping you for free.
No you are not. Nothing in life is free, including your steel wool blanket.
