I have been replaying something that happened over the Thanksgiving weekend over and over again in my head all week.  I have been doing this because every time I stand up to walk I am reminded of my clumsiness.

I went to the movies with a friend over the holiday to see Catching Fire (wow!  what a movie).  As we are leaving and climbing down the stairs she said something to me and I was thinking of a witty and funny comeback, and as I open my mouth to say it, I completely miss the bottom step.

What happens next is all in slow motion.  I completely bend my ankle 90 degrees and leftover popcorn seems to lift out of the container and my friend giggles and of course asked if I was OK.  I catch myself from busting it onto the floor but I limped out of the theater embarrassed.

I don't know if the reason I keep thinking about it is because I felt like a complete idiot. I hate embarrassing myself.

Luckily, I got home and iced it, then heated it, then ice, then heat.  I did that for most of the evening and by the next day I was able to walk on it.

However, 2 days ago with the same foot, I stepped on a staple.  Sigh!

I guess I need to pay more attention.

What is the clumsiest thing you have done lately.
