    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 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.

    But I have really good balance.

    So I trip a lot and stumble but rarely fall. I think I'm good at acting like I didn't almost fall on my face.

    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.
