Eech, ooch, ouch

As my sister noted, things change as you age. For instance, she said her clothes and how they fit has changed. For me, I'm getting clumsier and clumsier. I'd like to blame it on association, as a friend of mine is an absolute klutz (and fully admits it) but I have to say, it is just me.

For instance, when said sister was here visiting, we were walking along, and next thing you know, she turns to me and I'm on the ground. It wasn't like the walkway was terribly steep, I just kinda misstepped and fell.

Today, I did one better. I was walking down the stairs when I caught my heel on the cuff of my pants and went ass over head down the stairs. Thank my lucky stars for landings. This time, instead of my pride being hurt (which happened when I fell 3 times this past winter in the snow and mud), and people seeing me fall, I managed to have absolutely no audience, instead, just hurting parts of my physical body instead.

So much for tai chi teaching you how to balance and compose yourself. I should ask my tai chi master (a.k.a my dad) for a refund. :-) And yes, I'm looking for sympathy...tons of it. ;-)

I'll give you a ton of sympathy, hon! Hugs too!! And yeah, ask dad for a refund while you're at it. haha!

I'm tellin' ya, you have to go back to sensible shoes with orthotics. Forget the tai chi balance promise. ;}

I almost always wear flats, but I figured, being old fashioned, last day to wear white shoes and it went with the white pants.

I finished my Fort Wine wine and forgot to get Cointreau still, so I'll have to have some virgin drink instead. :}

Don't worry, I'm bringing reinforcements in a few weeks time.

Good post title! Do you need glasses, hon? JK. :)
I know it's not funny, but I grinned when I read about your fall. I hope you're okay! I don't know much about Tai Chi. Does it require you to wear special shoes?

BTW, Thanks for the flow in paragraph one.

OOOOOOPS! I meant thanks for the flow in paragraph one of tbe post AHEAD of this one. I'm such a goober.

I'm sure my fall was even funnier if anyone saw it. Fortunately no one did. I'm better thanks. Going to see the massage tomorrow, work out the last of the kinks.

You're not a goober, you were just having a moment.
