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.

  1. Oh no! That totally sounds like something I would do!

    I don't know if you're managing to do the readathon today or not, but if you are, I hope you have a great time! Either way, I hope you recover soon!
