UGG finds himself moments away from death or at least months in the hospital. He didn’t care either way, he had no plans. What ever he was going to do he thought “better do it quick it’s getting cold.”

He notices a woman down below, she notices him. They share a second, a moment. Then she begins to scream. “A man a man is going to jump!” If he were to do it, now would be the time. The longer he waits the harder it will be. Soon a crowd will gather, with any luck a reporter or two. The cops, “I hate cops” he thinks.

Slowly UGG steps away from the edge of the roof. A failure once again, what next?.....
