  1. Colin has a very large vocabulary for describing falls, I guess because they feature as such a large part of his day. "I toppled." "I stumbled." "I tripped." "I fall down hit head."

  2. Stumble would have been in my vocab. But not "tread," which is in Rob's childhood vocab. We had phiz for face, and facecloth for flannel, too.
