Grace Redefined


Some people, when they walk, they glide.
They float on air.
They look like they're dancing.





Not me.
Nope.

Yesterday, in Starbucks, I did the slow motion trip.

Not only did I trip on myself...
I did a double-trip, almost falling flat on my face
but managed to recover only to trip again splashing my drink
but not dropping it.
It was graceful alright.
In a buffoon, comedic way.






Remember when I had to sing for my Starbucks?


Then I managed to shut my finger in a drawer at work.
My own drawer.
My finger.

Then later the same day, I managed to shut my shirt in the drawer,
so that I ended up all hunched over and stuck.

I'm graceful, I tell ya...

And then, at Target, I was trying on necklaces for fun...
the same day...
and managed to get the clasp of one stuck in my frizzy mop curls.

A few curses and minus a few strands a hair later...I got it unstuck.

I'm a walking definition of grace redefined.

I always have mysterious bruises all over my body from bumping into yet another thing that I don't even remember bumping into. And I always seem to pick just the right moment to almost fall on my face when going for my walk...just as a car of teenagers is driving by. Good times.

My brother waddles like a duck. Feel blessed you dont have a duck butt. I'm just sayin'.

Love the last sentence: "I'm a walking definition of grace redefined."

I'm a total klutz too... when I was a kid, my sisters all had wooden clogs... I wasn't allowed cause mom said I'd break my ankle.. I was pissed... but she was right... I would have broken both legs...

My dad used to work for the LA Times, and one day he shut his tie into his desk drawer. He went to stand up, and immediately whomped his head back down onto the desk, recoiled so hard that he did it AGAIN. Funniest thing ever, from my perspective of course.

I trip on air all the time. ALL THE TIME!

Shannon said...

Sheesh! Were you trying to go for some record?!

And I think about you singing for your Starbucks every single time I go there myself!

I regularly close my hair in the door of my car. And I always get it tangled in my sunglasses.

I am talented that way, too...

I suppose that is why I gave Grace as a middle name to my girls. They are living up to the moniker. Poor girls!

I'm so glad that I'm not the only one. :-)
