Tommy is a really forgetful man
It’s not that he hasn’t had any experiences in life, he just forgets many of them. He needed a new one.
So be it, he thought and set out to get a Skydiving Certificate like he’s always wanted. He was really scared of jumping on his own for the very first time but his peers calmed him down on the way up. Practice is practice, and he’s not getting any younger he thought for himself. With this new found courage he threw himself out of the plane only to realise he forget the parachute. Terror struck at once, but his panic siezed when he was halfway down.
It was only practice after all.
