Slip and slide can be physical or moralAs we all know, slip and slide is a kind of toy. Some enjoy riding it, but some may not. There is a chance of an accident too, which might hurt physically, but there are many other kinds of slips and slides in life that might not injure bodily but morally. Some would take away the fun factor as it happens in snake and ladder. Unfortunately, if the number on the dice puts the player's token into a snake's mouth, it has to slide down to the tail. Even in ludo, when a player eats up another player's token: it's put back in one's home. That again reflects slip and slide though not physically.
Well, slip and slide not just relates to an indoor or outdoor game. Even in our day-to-day life, during rain, flood, a pile of sand or mud, a floor splashed with a bucket of soap water can cause slip and slide. Some may remain uninjured, while few may become prey to it and have a grave injury.
Sometimes we learn about someone's demotion in their rank due to the person's dishonesty and insincerity. One cannot expect to go higher and higher; even though remaining in a particular position can be stagnating and suffocating, still better than slipping and sliding caused by wrongdoings as it leads to loss of prestige and reputation. Thus, slip and slide is either fun or humiliation.
