Just Call Me Captain Klutz
Tuesday evening I decided to take a walk on the wild side - literally. In my attempt to maneuver the distance across my bedroom, I managed to get tangled in my own feet and take a not-so-graceful swan dive into the bedside table. Always knew I should have been a ballerina! Rather than adoring fans casting roses at my feet, I have a knot on my forehead, Steri-Strips holding my eyelid together and a gorgous purple shiner (Go Cats!) to show for my performance. There was a moment when i thought the ER staff was going to break into applause, but it turned out to be hysterical laughter instead.
I thought that perhaps my reading material should be in keeping with my poise and agility but, alas, I wasn't able to find a copy of Walking for Dummies. I did find the Klutz set of children's books/kits - Klutz Chinese Jump Rope, Klutz Book of Knots, Klutz Super Scissors Kit - but they would probably just cause further injury. Also ran across a science book for kids called Boom! Splat! Kablooey! that seemed appropriate, but my personal favorite is Idiot Girls' Action-Adventure Club : True Tales from a Magnificent and Clumsy Life. I'll check that one out just as soon as I can get my eye open.
