In all languages of the world, you know that pattern : when you watch a word too closely, you find it very weird suddenly. Blop.
For “Tumble down”, we have a verb. The fact that we in France don’t use the “up”, “down”, “back” and so on, forces us to invent words. This verb is :
Your bag of oranges crashes and opens at the top or your stairs : oranges dégringolent, they tumble down, right?
It happens for all men and women on the planet. A big betrayal, realizing something bitter, a failure, and you tumble down. You crash. You want to cryscream, you want to be hiddendead, you wanna kill the sky!
The common name for dégringoler is dégringolade, and it’s a word so funny (though everybody knows it here) that it becomes strange. Unlike your “fall” or “tumbling”, I reckon. You have your own strange words, right? “Betrayal” is strange…
Some day, you see your spouse in full dégringolade. It’s messy. Your love or your partner is desperate, has lost it. Total failure.
And of course, it’s NEVER a total failure. You have to stand now, OK?
There’s a “Duty of Apology” here. You have to move your ass and pull your partner up, right? It can be a spouse, a collaborator, an associate. When someone’s down : ACT.
Apology : FIND WHAT’S GOOD here, and say it! Beat the drum! She needs it!
It’s your duty.
