    I'm not clumsy! The floor just hates me,

    the table and chairs are bullies, and the walls just get in my way.

    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 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

    Some of my clumsy accidents.

    In the cover photo I have a bruised cheek bone and split lip. Recently I was carrying a mattress up my stairs and my pants fell down, I tripped and went face first into the stairs. I gave myself a blood nose. When I was younger I missed the fire pole on a playground and fell...

    I was drinking water from my sipper,

    I forgot to close the lid properly I guess. And all the water on my jeans. To make matters worse, I am at work and I dont have a change of clothes. I had to rely on the hand drier and my friend who was kind enough to help!

    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.

    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.

    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...

    At school I used to fall over a lot .

    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.

    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.
