Weekly Homework Assignment
It's time once again for Mama Kat's Weekly Homework Assignment! This week, I've chosen the following prompt: “I’m mad at myself. I’m embarrassed. I can’t believe after all these years, I’m still talking about my weight.” Poor Ope. What are you mad at yourself about?
I'm the clumsiest guy I know ... just hand something fragile to me, and there's a good chance I'll hand many pieces of it back to you. I just have no idea why I'm this clumsy! I try and try and try to be careful, but I end up falling through a chair or knocking over a display rack at a local shopping mall. If you've ever seen Pure Luck, I feel like the Martin Short character.
This weekend was a perfect example. I bought a new bulb to replace an old light bulb. I had the old light bulb in a plastic bag because I brought it with me to make sure I was buying the correct new bulb. As I was going to through out the old light bulb, it "magically" came out of the bag before reaching the trashcan and shattered all over the kitchen floor. Thank goodness!
I love fishing ... so what do I constantly do? Instead of hooking fish, I hook myself - sometimes it's my fingers. Other times, I hook my fishing net, or my chest waders, or even my shoe. It's quite a thing to watch ... majestic, even.
I think my friends enjoy my clumsiness ... they sometimes even set up items to see if I'll accidentally knock them over. Thanks, guys! I guess I can't be too mad at myself about this. I tend to get some great stories out of my clumsiness.
