Are you clumsy too…??

Sigh. I hate being so clumsy. Although I provide a funny incident and am a part of interesting stories in silent moments, I am not actually proud of it. In college, I have to bang my leg somewhere or trip over something. My lab coat always gets stuck at door handles resulting in broken buttons or torn pockets. And at least once a week I spend time sewing buttons on to it again. I cannot eat properly with a fork and a spoon and have to eventually resort to eating with my hands. I knock over coffee cups. I forget that my cell phone is kept on my lap and I stand up. I get shampoo in my eyes every time I take a hair bath. I spill something or the other on myself whenever I wear white. I have even banged my head on to a clean window! I have banged my shoulder onto door frames many times. The worst part about everything is that I laugh aloud when something silly happens to me. Not because I find it funny, but I try to hide my embarrassment when I do that. I have hit my head while getting out of the car and slammed the car door on to my fingers. I trip while walking almost every day. I have kind of desensitized my parents to loud bangs and crashes. When someone asks me how I got a bruise or a scratch, my answer is “I don’t know!” I can be elegant and graceful when it comes to writing, coz whenever I make a horrible mistake, there is always a backspace button waiting patiently for me. But in real life, I feel so ham-fisted and clumsy. I guess writing chose me instead of the other way!

Archana said...

I just happened to come by your blog, and I have to say this is a cute post! That's a lot of different scenarios you posted up for being clumsy, but you do have the right solution, it's better to laugh it off then pretend like it didn't happen. :)

Hope you have less clumsy-run-in's in the future! Heh.

Ms.R. said...

Same pinch. Probably when Ferg sang 'Clumsy' she had us in mind. Although I'm clumsy in general and not in love. I forget that my cell phone is kept on my lap and I stand up - all the time. It's become a part of me, so much that I don't even think of it as embarassing anymore. Hehehe

Amal Bose said...

@ Amal:
Lol..Thnaks..!! I'll try my best to take care..!! :D

Jagjit said...

Honest. I like it when people write without holding back. No I won't say I am clumsy or something, but I know many who bang into something or someone all the time. And they are fun people to have around. Don't wish for a backspace button if your life. Be what you are. Proud to be clumsy :) Nice blog. Keep it up.

A. K. said...

Wow! That sounds horrible. How to you manage to pull it off. LOL
