I have this problem with clumsiness.  OK, I've said it. It's out there.  It is very frustrating for those who spend a lot of time with me, and I do feel for people like Rohan, and my Mum who put up with it for the 22 years that she lived with me.  I can remember spending a week away with my closest girlfriends in my mid-twenties and mentioning it, to which they said they hadn't noticed. Bless them. I think I spilt about five drinks over the course of that week, (granted they were alcoholic) but there was no denying it after that. I appear to go through certain periods of high clumsiness every so often, and I have been contemplating why that occurs?  Is it from lack of sleep, lack of a certain vitamin, lack of sex, lack of something? I haven't managed to figure it out. Whatever the cause, I seem to be going through one at the moment, having sliced the top of my finger off with a newly sharpened knife and setting fire to an oven mitt within a 24 hour period. Thankfully I am experienced enough to act quickly when these happenings occur. Although I have to say fire isn't usually my forte.  I hope this phase is done now.

Unfortunately honey, I think it's a life long phase. But I'll always love you even if you do set the house on fire and step on the dog.

I've only just found this, and I was shocked that you didn't mention your finger before we went overseas (obviously so that we could be absent for your birthday and Tia's birthday again). You're right, you've been a problem forever, but still nowhere near as bad as your father. You JUST NEED TO CONCENTRATE! (As I used to tell him, too.) Is your finger okay now? I'll check on Friday.
