Friends like these

The party had been going a while; Will was well-oiled and animated, a source of amusement to us all. Suddenly, the effort of standing proved too much for him and he staggered backwards, grabbing onto the kitchen door to steady himself.

The door calmly swung open and Will, bereft of support, disappeared head-first out into the night, landing heavily on the patio outside.

Perhaps best of all was the fact that Rowley, who had been walking up the garden path, had been perfectly positioned to rescue the situation, but had instinctively sidestepped the toppling Will.

Having been thus far remiss in his duty as a friend, Rowley topped it off by carrying straight on into the kitchen without helping Will up.
