One must be grateful for narrow misses.
One minute you’re sat contently in a peaceful prose, completely unawares that a piece of your ceiling fan will imminently fly across your room, distributing its lesser parts across your mosquito net and bedside table, with a disturbing crash. And then suddenly, yes you’ve guessed it; the aforementioned disaster occurs. Followed by a question, “what was that!?”
“Did a piece of the fan just fly off!?”
“Yes, yes it did!”
“oh good, that’s ok then.”
Meanwhile, we survived and will think again before increasing fan speed!
