Attachment: A Simile
In the old cowboy movies (and in some new ones) and down Texas way they have this fun thing where they tie someone up and drag them behind a horse or the stagecoach or an old truck, him bouncing around like popcorn in a hot iron cauldron. In the movie of course the victim/hero gets up, dusts himself off and polishes off the bad guys.
In reality what happens is pretty grim.
Stop for a minute long enough to see if you can put the picture into focus in your mind.
