Clumsiness is...

…..kicking wet cat food all over the floor as you fall backwards over the cat…then opening the cupboard under the sink to get cleaning products…knocking half of the cupboards content’s all over the floor, smashing a bottle in the process…then banging your head on the way back up!

All shortly before you slip on the floor you’ve just attempted to wipe, then realise you’ve burnt your inner thighs. With a bowl of soup you didn’t realise was hot as you balanced it there.

Oooooh, yes, sympathy and understanding. I do not have anything like the problems you have, and have been lucky enough not to scald myself.

So far.

Trixie said...

OUCH!!!!

How many dislocations did you get from all that?

And what's the obsession with soup??? lol

Let me guess....cheap! (hence why I eat loads!)

What's the situation with the house selling? With a bit of luck it won't be sold for ages with the current down turn in the economic climate!

I was tempted to offer to kiss it better!

LceeL said...

Cogidubnus beat me to it - still - I would definitely kiss it and make it better.

That wasn't clumsiness, I think this smacks of a conspiracy!

Hoping that you are not too badly injured from this catalogue of ill-luck.

Katrin said...

Oh goodness. I can totally sympathise. Way too much.

Hope the burns were minor and heal quickly and the bump on the head doesn't smart for too long.

Sounds like a bit of a mess.
If my kitchen ended up looking like yours, i'd probably just move.

Some days were just not meant to be. Hope you're OK.

Indigo said...

I can sympathise with you.. my usual trick is to take things out of the oven with cloth then put them down, only seconds later tryiong to pick the hot items up again with bare hands... alas I no longer own finger prints..

Mr. Nighttime said...

Let me guess...you were imitating a Three Stooges routine and it went awry? ;-)

Glad you're okay though, and I know the feeling. It's the kind of domino effect that just screws up your day.

Mr Nighttime has it right. It's a domino effect leaving you feeling like a comedy routine! Normally, bloody hormones are to blame.

emma said...

Oh thats so me too. I went into the fridge, kicked the cats water (ooof!) and then proceeded to drop everything i touched in the fridge all over me.

Marla said...

That sucks! Those are also the days where you just want to go back to bed and hide.

When I first damaged my back and the spinal cord, I ran a bath not thinking to test the water I went from wheelchair to sit on the bath and into the water, it was boiling, it was only when I put my hand it I knew I was stuffed, back to hospital for two weeks.

A week and no posts. Did the soup burn you that bad?
If so, get well soon and keep posting
