I'm not the least bit known for my grace. I've been a klutz since I was a wee thing. The scar in my eyebrow? Happened when I was two, when I toddled into the corner of the TV set. I'm still banging into things, and it always shows--I bruise really easily. I honestly can't remember a time when there wasn't a single bruise on my body somewhere. Yes, I'm that klutzy.
And graceless. Remember when I dropped the VCR on my foot and broke it (the foot--the VCR was already broken)? Well, last week, two more prime example of my klutziness and gracelessness happened.
Christmas Day I was getting out of the car and closed the door--on my calf. I still have the bruise and a scab--it will probably leave a scar. Then a few nights ago I was making mashed potatoes. As I was draining the potatoes one dropped out onto my thumb. That little potato hurt! I spent most of the night with a paper towel-wrapped ice cube on my thumb.You'd think one little boiled potato wouldn't cause much damage, but I still have the blister from the burn. Hopefully that one won't scar. Sheesh.
I've kind of curious what crazy ways I'll injure myself this year. Let's hope it doesn't involve any more broken bones--or scars. Have enough of those, thankyouverymuch.
How's your New Year going?
