    I Cant Possibly Be This Clumsy

    I have tripped over my own two feet before and just swear at them. Stupid feet. How dare they.I've made it thru rough terrain and shady places, woods, etc and yet put me on a flat surface and i'll trip everytime.  And of course none of this is my fault. It was the damn crack in...

    I Even Tell Them Off Sometimes

    You know, when your clothes get caught in the door handle? I usually turn to the door handle, glare at it, and say "let go!" in a stern voice. It usually works.

    Yup That's Me

    If there is anything within a mile radius of me I will find it and fall over it. Then look at it like it's going to tell me how the heck it got there.Clumsy? Not really, just to distracted with things to pay attention  lol

    It Hurts.

    And if you listen from the other side of the door, you'll hear me curse them out like a 13th century shepherdess from a dime novel:  " Two-headed daughter of a goat! "  " Spineless son of a jackal-faced launderess! "

    Because It Purposefully Just Jumped Into My Path.

    Is it just me? I swear I didn't put it there because I know I always run into stuff like that. Why would I leave it there just to trip over it? I do it enough to be very conscious about where I leave and place things but yet again i find myself stumbling. So, If I always remember...

    Damn It

    Earlier today I had to go down into my basement. I already felt like crap, I was dizzy and sick, but because I'm a genius I decided to tackle the stairs. I got about half way down when my damn stupid knee buckled, I fell into the wall then fell on all fours at the bottom. I...

    Glitches.

    I stumble over things. It's weird in a sense. For example, lay one brick somewhere one a football field and I assure you I'll stumble over it. The strange thing about this is that I'm very observant. I see things. Is also why I am easily distracted because I have a far greater...

    'scuse You!

    I glare and demand the object excuse itself.The only exception to this is when I trip over a broom in the dark whilst half asleep.  The resulting clatter generally scares my sleepy self so badly I just bolt for my bedroom!

    I Didn't Fall, I Was Attacking The Floor.

    Yeah, I have my clumsy moments. Okay, clumsy moments have me. My tendency is to have my mind going 800 miles an hour and jump up to take care of one of those 800 thoughts and trip over or run into something. Not only do I glare, but if the kids are not around I can let out...

    Not only do I do this, I have a tendency to yell and scream at whatever I tripped on! Especially if I really hurt my foot.

    I do this on almost a daily basis.. usually to my kid's toys that are left in the middle of the living room floor, or when I stub my toe on the corner of my bed I tend to stop and glare at it too.. It's like it moves just so that I will stub my toe on it.. It happens so often...

    Rogue Toys

    They are there. Somewhere. Always waiting. Lurking in the shadows. Renegade toys with an agenda. To make mommy fall! They have gone rogue! It is a conspiracy between Mattel and HMO's. That is my theory, anyway.

    How Dare They!

    I rarely trip over things. When I do, it must be a plot of some sort. They deserve to be glared at until whatever it was that tripped me learns never to do it again! A good glaring will teach things to be mindful of where I step. :)

    I've Tripped Over Things And Turned Around And Look At It

    I  have tripped over things and turn around and look at what I tripped over and wonder how come I didn't see it?!   I've tripped over rocks and twigs, and ruts in roads and sidewalks.
