Confession of a grace malfunction…

Okay, so I wasn’t able to post yesterday because I fucked up my thumb.


A bitch is clumsy….very clumsy…not at all coordinated…often on my ass post tumble without a clue how I got there.

Yesterday, I was gathering items for a meeting at my office. My intention was to walk around my desk to get a business card. What actually happened was that I tripped over the mass of computer wires positioned perfectly for just such a incident…flew across the room (think Crouching Tiger Hidden Shark-fu)…and managed to ram my thumb into an air duct type thing aligned to the wall.


Oh, and I scratched my ear but I have no idea how the fuck that happened…must have been whilst my ass was flying.

Sigh once again.

Anyhoo, all is well and nothing is broken.

Unfortunately, every time I try to forget this latest grace malfunction my fucking thumb sends out an ache/throb/sharp pain to remind me that I’ m a danger to myself and others.

Once again, you've made this old man laugh out loud in a very inappropriate manner for the office.

I almost knocked out a mouth full of teeth at work one time. But I recovered at the last moment and placed my hand on the edge of the stainless steel table, allowing my face to hit the back of my hand as opposed to the corner of the stainless steel table. That would have been ugly.

I think I am going to vote for Edwards in the Florida Primary. As if that makes any difference at all, the parry took away all of Florida's delegates (as in Michigan) because we "broke the rules". Whatever. The South Carolina debates made me come to this decision. It was like Edwards was the only adult there. Obama would be my second choice, as I think he can pull in the indies. I do not think Hillary could.

Hope your thumb feels better. If it is any consolation to you, I would have probably laughed if I worked in your office. It is man law. When someone falls down but they are not seriously injured it is funny - unless that person is you, in which case you have to say foul things to people laughing.

Man law also says you would have had the right to punch me on the arm for laughing. All is good.

Oh man. I'm all thumbs sometimes myself. I have closed my one thumb in the door of two cars and a drawer.

But here is an aside, something to make you shake your head in possible agreement and then wonder why.

OMG, funny and yet sad...very very sad. I once accidently dropped my gum out of my mouth on a tredmill. Poor juicy wad fell onto my running foot, got kicked into the air and went flying into someone else's hair. I then proceeded to get off tredmill to inform the sad victim of my gum mishap that she was now the proud owner of the very first gum hair barrett. I just fell of the tredmill instead. Bad day, but funny to me still.

Hope the thumb gets better.

Cords are such hazards, and we just get more and more of them.
Hope your thumb is better soon.

Youch! I hope the air duct looks worse! ;)

(BTW, I found you via Bug Girl's blog!)

Shark-fu you are not alone. I seem to have regressed into Danger Prone Daphne Mode. I'm always tripping and my hands have taken the biggest beating.

I must be getting old. LOL!

Sorry to hear about the boo-boo...but I laughed my ass completely off thinking of you in the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon flying position!

I'm a constant lurker on your blog. This post was too funny to pass up. LOL! I'm clumsy too. One time I have fallen a couple of times. At least you were in your office and not in public. I've tripped in public and embarassed myself.

LOL...Since I'm clumsy, I feel your pain. At my college, I walked into the same way, almost daily for 4 years. Personally, it was a stupid place for the wall to be and my brain refused to believe someone designed the building like that. I have a permascratch on my arm from that damn brick wall.

LMAO!!! My sister is a legendary clumsy person as well. She would manage to drop kick a glass of water on a completely empty football field, so don't feel bad, you are in awesome company.

I love this blog!
