‘I’m not clumsy, – I’m accident-prone!’ – Daniel Radcliffe
Running down in a hurry, “BANG!….Gosh, forgot that the door was there!”, next in the room panting while making the bed”OUCH!….God this bed hurts!”, dashing in the kitchen with some veggies on the cutting board:”Eeeoooowwww……Where are the band-aids?”. It’s extremely blunderous on such days as well as quite a commotion.I hope at least some of you can relate to this experience, this post is for all you people out there – compassion for the clownish! For some,life is pretty much in control, sophisticated, just as they plan or want it to be and for some,it’s 180 degrees apart.Inept, erratic, awkward…….infact ‘Butterfingers, Klutz, Dolt or Dork’ the word they often use for some clumsy wumsy’s like ME!:)
‘If my life was a song the title would probably be ‘Clumsy’, ’cause I’m clumsy.’ – Pia Toscano
So we’re odd, but why are we so clumsy anyways….giving it a deep thought i was revealed the following reasons for our misdemeanors:
* Sometimes it’s a physical condition which causes it (Dyspraxia, scoliosis, vertigo, diabeties causes clumsy feet), mostly it’s NOT!
‘Your physicality is this great thing, but it is also the thing that makes you clumsy and limits you in the world, so to speak.’ – Amy Ray
*We are really poor at managing time, which leads to mistakes.
*We are always in a hurry.
‘There have been times when I reread – or at least leafed through – something because I’d sent a copy to a friend, and what usually happened was that I noticed dozens and dozens of clumsy phrases I wished I could rewrite.’ – Peter Straub
*We love taking stress and panic ALOT!
*We usually have our heads in clouds.It’s habitual for us to think and work at the same time.
*Some are also day dreamers, or deep thinkers.
*We are bad at balance and posture.
No matter what, it all certainly makes us the laughing stock of the town, gives bruises and aches, and a feeling that we can never do anything right.What more, we have extra work load!Cleaning up the mess our clumsiness creates.But you know what, carrying the tradition since childhood, i have no problems whatsoever with being clumsy.After all, it’s not our fault. (Well, not all of it!) Look at the brighter side, we can join the circus clowns whenever we want, we can play JACK and JILL in any play, stumbling down the hill just like that, we have many wonderful characters to relate with like Frank Spencer (Some Mother’s do ‘ave ’em fame) or clumsy smurf, we could become wonderful comedians or mime performers.
Jokes apart, i have also devised a to – do – list for bringing about colossal changes in our weird life’s, where there’s too much of bumping into things and falling:
