Excited about the news, I hurried to her house and broke it to her. She got all excited, jumped up and down and eventually jumped on me. Losing my balance, I fell back on the ground and she flipped half a turn, landing above my head face up.

Is the above confusing? Do you imagine us ended up lying on the group head to head forming a straight line? If not, which part has thrown you off?

Thanks.

The way I figure it is that she jumps on you, you fall on your back, she falls forward with you and then her momentum carries her into a forward roll head over heels along the ground.

I don't think that we've been told the ages of the peopIe involved. I dimly remember a time when this might not have seemed such an impossible or dangerous manoeuvre.
Mr WordyLosing my balance, I fell back on the ground, sending her tumbling head over heels. We landed lying in opposite directions, face up on the ground, her head to mine.
Just to confinue with what the original poster wants - Losing my balance I fell back on the ground, sending her tumbling head over heels. We landed lying in opposite directions, face up on the ground, her head to mine, forming a straight line together.

It has never been easy to describe movements to such precision.

My suggestion of "lying in opposite directions" was intended to replace "forming a straight line together", not supplement it. If you are lying head to head in opposite directions then, to me, you are necessarily forming a straight line.
Thanks, Mr. Wordy.
