How to Catch a Falling Knife

The following is a simple lesson I was taught when I was young about how one goes about catching a knife without hurting oneself:

  1. Turn yourself to face the knife.
  2. Say hello to it.
  3. Learn what it wants from you.
  4. Reject it wholeheartedly.
  5. Then step aside and let it fall where it may.
  6. It did this to itself.
