Feeling Silly … And Sore

My lifelong klutziness is starting to get on my nerves. Okay, I don’t complain when I fall while trying to swing dance. Not too much, anyway. After all, there’s assumption of risk involved. But just the other day I managed to fall off a folding chair. And that’s plain stupid … not to mention, embarrassing:

Feeling Silly … And Sore (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

If I fall while I dance, I don’t care:
It’s a case of swing dancer, beware.
But my clumsiness irks
When I’m one of those jerks
Who foolishly falls off a chair.

    Have you ever taken a fall while going UPstairs? Does that qualify as klutzier?

    Hope it wasn’t TOO embarrassing!

    LOL! I’ve taken most every variety of fall.

    Be smarter than tools that you use.
    You just might regret what you lose
    Might be more than pain –
    Won’t grow back again!
    So if it’s not safe then REFUSE!
