OK, I am clumsy. In a very dramatic way. There was the time I tripped in the SteinMart parking lot, did a double gainer and skinned my knee without ripping my pants or the brace I was wearing on my knee. My 3 BFFs stood there laughing while I was laying in the traffic lane. The gentleman who saw it happen got up and walked away. My friends did ask if I was ok once they stopped laughing. I guess it was pretty spectacular...
Then there was the day I was here in my home office and I heard my cellphone ring in the kitchen. My cleaning lady was here and had just washed the floor. I took a home run slide and tore my ACL that time. Not so good. I am really careful when those tile floors are wet.
When my first husband and I had our first home it was not quite up to code... the stairs were very narrow and steep. I cannot tell you how many times I fell down those darn stairs.. But despite that, all I really did was tear my meniscus a few times... and it mostly healed, didn't need surgery till I was 50..
So I do have this history.... But last night as I was getting ready to go to bed, I tripped over the rug in front of my sink, and did a face plant on the tile floor. I really thought my nose was broken, but it is just sore and swollen. I have a big goose egg on my forehead (thank goodness for bangs!) and my knees are bruised. I may end up with black eyes... Now it's funny, last night, not so much... But didn't feel quite up to the gym today, or even a walk this morning. Will be walking tonight when it cools down some.
Honestly, I do have pretty good balance - I do balance exercises and the yoga 'tree" pose. But sometimes.... I really am just a klutz!
