    Mr. Gravity Rears His Ugly Head

    I'm a small business owner, and as such I try to do as much of the labor as possible.  We sell fiberglass kayaks and other small boats made in China.  They are shipped to us in those big 40 foot shipping containers.  Of course we don't have a loading dock, so we...

    Sled Riding.

    One snowy winter I decided to go sled riding. You have to be careful not to hit any trees, bumps, or anything else that you could hurt yourself by. I took my sled and tried to pick out the best spot to go down the hill , and in this case it was going to be a bad choice. I didn't...

    Woops.

    I jumped up at the doctor's office so an old lady could take my seat, I then reversed and subsequently fell over the leg of a man in a cast, and gracefully landed on my ***.

    I was horseback riding in a field and you have to be careful since there are holes which you can't see since the grass is so long. I was trotting along with some friends when my horse Sam trips over a groundhog hole and I lost my balance. I leaned forward istead of backwards and...

    I Tripped a Lot As a Kid

    I used to trip a lot and sprain my ankles as a kid.  I had weak ankles because of my weight.  I don't do it so much now because I 'm more careful of how I walk.

    Keep Me Away From The Kitchen!

    One of the first adjectives that I learned when I first started studying French is the word "maladroit" or "clumsy." Usually, I strive to be gentle and graceful, but it doesn't always work out that way. I get klutzy in a few different ways. The funny thing is that I can (almost...

    Today I had a toothpick in my stocking hat (for good reason!) and when I was taking off the rest of my outdoor gear, I bent over into the wall and jammed it into my scalp. Yowzah!! That was quite a tickle.
