The Heartbreaking Weekend of a Staggering Klutz

Friday after working out, I slipped in the shower, bruising my back.

Saturday, I:
  • Knocked loose (and shattered) a tulip-shaped bulb from an expensive lamp given to me by my mother (the only piece of furniture I had that wasn't purchased from a store that ends in "-mart" or "arget" or "kea")

  • Broke the glass of a 4x6 frame (inexpensive, luckily)

  • Dropped (and popped) the light that goes into my aquarium hood (yes, I have a fish — I never denied my geekdom)
And Sunday... in completing the simple act of returning a towel to the rack, I knocked an 8 x 10 frame off of the wall, breaking it in two.

The "best" part being, this weekend was intended to do chores. But all I really accomplished was making more work for myself.

All a long way of saying: if you really loved me, you'd send flowers.

Or at least super glue.

I empathize. I once gave myself a scar and limp simply mailing a letter.

My klutziness tends to only hurt me though, so it's bandaids rather than super glue that I need in my care packages!

I am sending Gorilla glue, I have to buy it by the case. I drop dishes and glasses in the porcelain sink on a daily basis.

Let me guess this all happened between the hours of 8:30pm and 10:30pm?

Stop doing chores immediately! In self defense!

Don't deny your geekiness, embrace it!

Which do you prefer, glue or flowers? And where would you want them shipped?

I agree with Lee nothing a little maid service wouldn't cure.

I managed to break my toe answering the door last week - no I can't figure out how that's possible either.

I totally expected this to be a drinking story.

Pamela said...

when I was pregnant I did stuff like that all the time.

What is Pamela trying to say?

Michele - I hear super glue can come in handy for healing cuts... so maybe that's really all I need.

Stacy - I have a container here next to me. My projects for this weekend include a load of repairs.

Go figure.

thirdworstpoetinthegalaxy said...

XOXO - Ha ha. Very funny.

[Yes.]

thirdworstpoetinthegalaxy said...

Lee - Great advice -- I just may have to do that.

thirdworstpoetinthegalaxy said...

BPP - And embrace it I do.

(sigh)

Let's see... super glue or flowers. Hmmm... depends on the situation, I guess.

Glenn - Ouch! Those hurt. Hope it's feeling better...

Michael - Sorry to disappoint.

Pamela - Just for the record: I am NOT pregnant.

XOXO - See above.
