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. ;-)
