People mistakenly think that because I am active and fit, I must be coordinated too. Ha! I am the Queen of Clumsy!
You know how kids are always covered in bumps and bruises and rarely remember how they got there? Well I am still this way. Its not unusual for me suddenly realize a finger is bleeding with no knowledge of having hurt myself. I am also famous for inflicting injury on myself in the most ridiculous ways. I have dropped a barbell on my face while bench pressing, gotten a black eye from a telephone, and have injured virtually every part of my body while I've been sleeping.
I also seem to have a special talent for hurting the inside of my mouth. Biting my tongue and cheek is something I do on a far too regular basis, and I have gashed the inside of my mouth numerous times from eating hard things (like crackers or sunflower seeds). This week I managed to bruise my gum on a piece of kale. Yes, you heard me! Now in my defense, it was a piece of stem, and they are kind of tough, but still, Adam is probably correct that I am the only person on the planet that would do such a thing. Not only is it unsightly (purple and hugely swollen between 2 of my incisors), but it hurts like heck.
So even though it was only a 4-day week, I'm glad its Friday. I work tonight and tomorrow but Sunday we are going to visit an old friend of mine to see her twin baby girls...I am very excited!
So have a healthy, happy weekend and watch out for the kale.
