    All Around Me

    Me being accident prone is'nt about me getting hurt, but things breaking in my hands. For example, I used to work at lumber mill stacking lumber. Well we run a thing called a "hoist" it runs on 2" thick wire to lift over 500 lbs. I can't think of how many times the...

    Do Bad Things Always Have To Happen All At Once?

    Yesterday my daughter and I drove to the driver’s license office and got my Colorado driver’s license. My picture was taken, but what no one told me was that part of my hair was sticking straight up. (Just can't wait to get that card!) After that, we spent too much money on...

    You Did What???

    There's really no excuse.  None whatsoever.  I'd apologize, but really, I can't think of an explanation, either.  And you'll be wanting an explanation.  I mean, what with the way your that stain appeared on your carpet.  I know, I know.  You told...

    It's 4 In The Morning...

    And I just sprained my ankle doing the time warp. Oh yeah! *Chants own name* Who's the queen of clumsy! I have fallen down stairs. I have fallen up stairs. I have tripped over my own feet and broken my wrist. Don't even get me started on my time working as a cook!

    I have always had some of the worst luck.

    In my short 17 years I have broken 18 major bones, not including all the sprains, strains, tears, and tiny breaks. You would think since I am very active most of them would be sports injuries, but it's exactly the opposite. 9out of 18 of my broken bones have come from me just...

    Clumsy

    I'm very clumsy & am always bumping into things, knocking things over, spilling things, hitting various body parts on various objects, etc. I've been this way since I was a kid, but a medication I was put on a couple years ago added even more to my clumsiness. I've always had...

    000th chance of happening to someone I could probably say happens to me. I run into trees and get hurt in the oddest ways. While I was helping my best friend move I tripped over an empty box, fell to the floor and slid my foot into a gap in between the dresser and the floor and...

    Last Few Years

    Don't Know What It Is...

    But I am a walking disaster. Thankfully I usually come out of my scrapes with little or no damage to myself, but they are always near-misses. It isn't always accidents relating to me. Often I end up breaking things through my fault of my own. Okay, perhaps if I took a little more...
