I trip, bump into things, and drop things all the time. I love physical activity, though. Dancing is my favorite.

i am quite clumsy but i am also dextrous.
when i do not pay attention to what i am doing, i encounter many accidents.

last week, i bought a sandwich, and as i was walking back to my car, i had the sandwich wrapper clasped in one hand, and my keys and the change in the other hand.
when i got close to the car i had to decide what hand my keys were in, and i got it wrong because i opened the hand holding the sandwich, and it started to fall the ground.
(even if i had opened the correct hand, there would still have been problems).

i quickly put my hand under the falling sandwich and batted it up into the air so i could catch it as it fell back down from a height.
but i did not have time to clasp the sandwich wrapper with my fingers as it fell, so i batted it up again higher with my palm, and then as it fell again, i still could not clasp it so i batted it up even higher in the air so i would have time to get my hand ready to catch it as it fell back down.

i then successfully caught the sandwich, but i inadvertently opened my other hand, and my keys and change fell to the ground. there was some notes in the change, and they started to blow away, so i forgot i had the sandwich in my left hand, and i opened both hands to try to catch the money, and the sandwich hit the ground and i trod on it as i was chasing the money.

i think it was clumsiness, or otherwise executive dysfunction in that i could not control so many different things in my hands.

I'm clumsy, I have poor eye-hand coordination, poor fine motor skills, poor spatial relations, poor depth perception... my physical interface with the world is just BAD.

When waking up I have a hard time simply walking usually and bump my elbows, knees and feet into things often. Oddly I am an excellent swimmer though....

I'm not that clumsy. I'm quite adept at catching things I've dropped or knocked over. :roll: :P

Clumsy is my middle name. I'm always walking into walls, furniture and other things. I drop things a lot sometimes breaking them.

I'm a huge klutz. My mates have a tongue in cheek name for me which I won't repeat here as it may cause offence. But yeah the fact my mates have a name for me to describe my klutziness is pretty bad I suppose.
I often say "I was definitely not made to navigate this world successfully". This is because I struggle to open doors, windows and do other extremely simple coordinative tasks that others seem to do with ease. I never learnt to ride a bike due to balance issues. I can barely even walk! If I'm walking next to someone they often complain about how I keep falling into them.
I also always drops things on the floor and have injured myself several times through dropping things on my feet.

So yeah. I'm pretty bad.

I am super clumsy and I have high tolerance for pain. That means lots of mystery bruises. Also, I often get so caught up in my head thinking about stuff that I forgetto pay attention to my physical bosy. It makes for many scenes right out of the nerd manual.

One of my favorite cartoon ever is all about this... I can't seem to find a good link to post so just search:

Gary Larson Midvale School for the Gifted

I'm a total klutz. I am constantly walking into doorframes, wall corners and anything else possible, I constantly burn myself on the oven and iron, and I always various bruises. I've walked into a pillar box in the street and have a history of not walking in a straight line. The list goes on...

Fine motor skills Nick said. I say, "what the heck are Fine Motor skills" because I have next to none. I had gotten pretty good with a joystick a couple decades ago but that has lapsed. I shake when doing anything delicate.
Also, I trip over bumps that exist in parallel universes or something..
The real miracle is, I have only managed to break a couple of bones in my 5 decades! I should be like old Evil Knievel with all broken bones & metal pins.

Sincerely,
Matthew
Please look under Klutz in any encyclopedia because my pic will be found there!

Well, my offspring kringe if they hear me say, "ow", when I am in the kitchen making dinner because I have cut, burned, spilled on and scorched myself repeatedly. You're not alone in this. And it is not because of being fifty something; I've been this way my whole life. The weird thing is I can throe a wadded up paper into the garbage from across the room, but trip over the coffee table a minite later even though it's been in that spot for five years.
I have scars and bruises all over my hands and lower arms, and particularly right now, I am thoroughly 'decorated' with black and blue marks from packing and loading stuff for a move. :roll:
