At the gym , if i run, my knees, rather my left knee specifically hurts!! BTW i run only for a few mins!! Which got me thinking about all the (un) graceful falls i have had till now!!! They have been really ungraceful.... what else would you expect with a Klutz!!! I am very very very clumsy.. i have butter fingers.. butter legs too!!!:)
One of my first accidents i remember... i was really young and had just learnt cycling.. and the first time my dad left the cycle after giving it a nice push.. i was so excited that i turned back to wave and immediately climbed on to someone's veda (dunno what its called.. that little raised portion in the front of a house) and fell!!!
Another one was when playing gallery... i was guarding one stretch.. we were not supposed to allow anyone to cross.. the leader of my team could guard from anywhere.. she had freedom of movement while we could only move inone direction... so to stop someone from crossing, i ran at full speed and so did she and wham.....we ran into each other.. she on top of me .. and of course it didn't help that she was quite heavy.. i fell on the road on my side.. couldn't smile for days!!!!!!
As an adult too, i have had these "accidents"... was in college first year when i fractured my hand.. a hairline fracture.. doing what.. playing chain with friends at India Gate.. the doctors would first ask me.. which class/ school do you study in.. when i told them i was in college.. the next question used to be how did you manage to do this.. and i would be like.... errrr.. playing....
Once i started working.. i had a muscle tear ... i used to roam around wearing a knee pad... how did i fall.... i fell off a chair!!!!
And last year.. i fell inside a chair and scraped my shins... still have the scar to show!!! Its so embarrassing to tell anyone .... i mean. falling off chairs and tearing muscle.. it looks so much better if i could say i was playing tennis or something and hurt myself!!
And of course i keep walking into doors / glass/ table etc etc .. name it , i walk into it!!!
