I have named your stairs

If you don't have any in your home, tough.

From the entrance level, stairs that go up shall be named thusly:

1: Potato
2: Duck
3: Musketeer
4: Skin
5: Alive
6: Sex
7: Down
8: Snowman
9: Cat
10: Der
11: Legs
12: Eggs
13: monster

...And stairs that go down.....

1: Day
2: Laxative
3: Imelda
4: Tune
5: Vwls
6: T9
7: Reflex
8: Infinite
9: No
10: Boris
11: Oneteen
12: Poodles
13: Hand Basket

If you have 14+ stairs in any one flight, you are weird and live in a lighthouse and all remaining stairs are called Bob. Except for that one.

You've solved my problem before I recognized it.

You don't wait for a cut before buying a bandaid, good to have this information in your bug-out bag.

3: Potato
4:
5: Potato

How can stairs be more than one syllable?

Well, some of our stairs were not built by expert craftspeople such as yourself. Some identify as more than one syllable. Some are old. Some are so good one needs to linger on them or the memory of them lingers. Some dream of a life in politics. Some are in rooms that create echoes. And some are in The Southern States of the USA, where nothing has only one syllable.

But did you hear the tragic story of the lighthouse keeper who ran up the stairs too fast and screwed himself into the ceiling?

(Posting from a stair free zone BTW).
