    I Used to Be Graceful

    Growing up I took ballet and gymnastics for years.  Once I started taking anti-depressants though my coordination has grown considerably worse.  Now I literally do fall over my own feet and have bruises to prove it.  To think my job has me climbing up on ladders...

    I go outside to turn on a soaker hose

    for the plants, not knowing that I turned on the sprinkler right behind me. I am completely soaked as if I was out in rain!

    Just Call Me Gracie

    Accident Prone. Clumsy. Klutzy. Whatever you call it I am very much so. One of the funniest clumsy stories goes back into my junior year of high school. We were all in our gym class just goofing around and I decided I wanted to be a ballerina. I was wearing joggers that were just...

    At school I used to fall over a lot .

    . I was always tearing the knees of my trousers . I hated them any way . Most kids probably do . Why wear them ? If they don't fit or itch and cause discomfort and are difficult to put on or button up or tie together. My mum thought I did it deliberately .. But I didn't I was...

    I had to call the fire brigade

    after trying to make toast (toaster caught on fire), I have broken so many things because I am usually daydreaming and not focusing on where I am going/holding. yet I haven't broken a bone (win!) How do I be more graceful or do I just accept this is who I am? :P

    Today

    I am not ordinarily clumsy. Today I forgot to screw the lid on my sugar dispenser. All of the sugar and the lid fell into my tea cup. It was the best tea I ever had.

    Clumsy

    I am so clumsy, I actually think its genetic cause my daughter is the same way,. I bump into everything @ work, I constantly spill things @ home and I am a horrible dancer, although I hate to admit it. I don't know how a Latina can not have rhythm. But hey I am it.

    I'm not sure how many people manage to do this,

    but earlier today I stepped back and slipped on the side of a mattress. I ended up falling and hitting the back of my head directly on the corner of our fireplace. The reason the mattress was there is my boyfriend is hanging around this week and he's sleeping in the living room...

    I have walked into everything.

    From doors to cutting corners of walls too sharply. From banging my head on the roof of the car when I try to get in to stubbing my toe 7 times a day.

    My stupid *** just smacked face first into the

    foot of my bed. I was leaning over to plug in my laptop when I suddenly sneezed and BAM! I hit it just below my right eyebrow. There's a round post at the sides so luckily there's no gash or anything, but i'll probably end up with a black eye.

    and have scrapes all over my legs from it xP I have always been uncoordinated, don't know why, just am! My theory is that because I'm so short the world is not made to accommodate me, hence I trip and run into stuff a lot. I guess it can't be helped... Just wish I wouldn't get...

    Spatial Confusion

    At least once a week I have to say ‘Third time lucky’ when I try to pick something up.  Usually, after a couple of casual and misjudged attempts I cross my eyebrows, snort a little from my nostrils, and try and actually focus on the task at hand.  Fingers, get a bit of a...
