Flattened Toddler

Chet very nearly squished a little girl today. Avery threw the Aerobe at him and he dodge-jumped off the apparatus and on his trip to the ground he sees a little two year old girl is running directly into his path. Kind of a weird time-slows-down kind of moment. He contorts so that he lands right in front of her and I mean right fucking smack in front of her. He didn't touch her, but this whole one-hundred-seventy-pound-man-out-of-fucking-nowhere thing kind of surprises her and so like a little baby she starts crying. "Oh, Jesus!" says her dad who is watching a few feet away and comes running over and grabs her up. At this point Chet suggests to Avery that they leave as gracefully as possible.
