Does this ever happen to you? Do you ever have a day, a few days, a week where all you do is run into things or drop stuff? I believe my week of the clumsy started yesterday.
I went out with a friend to enjoy dinner, a movie, and some treats at Barnes and Noble. While at B&N, I knocked one of those plastic advertisement holders from a table and loudly onto the floor. Then I somehow got chocolate syrup on my jeans. Every time I picked something up, I dropped it. After a while I just had to ask my friend to look at things for me.
Today I decided to do some house stuff that required tools and a step stool. I should have stopped myself knowing my track record, but I didn’t. At one point, I removed the battery from the drill and dropped it, denting a nice wooden piece of furniture. I banged the step stool on nearly every door frame in the house. I dropped screws multiple times but luckily I thought ahead and closed the vent on the floor. The blue ribbon moment came when I was trying to remove a nail from the wall. The angle was awkward and the nail was stubborn. After a few tries it wouldn’t budge. I tried one more time to remove the nail, and it gave up on the fight. It came flying out of the wall and the handle of the hammer hit me just above my eyebrow—hard! I’m expecting a lovely bruise from this one.
I wonder if I should wear a helmet and bubble wrap the rest of the week.
