Are you a good faller?

About 10 years ago I was in an automobile accident.  I rolled my car 4 times and came out with only a seat belt bruise and a torn left ACL.  I spent months in physical therapy both before and after surgery.  In the meantime, I really learned how to fall and not get hurt.

Just now I absent-mindedly managed to fall off my deck (about 2 feet).  I realized I was going down and not to fight it.  There I was, laying on the ground and my daughter is asking me if I'm OK.  "Yeah, I'm fine.  I rolled."  You know, that's a nice skill to have.
