I just have to ask… am I the only one who looks like Les Nessman at any given time? I am referring to a character from WKRP in Cincinnati who constantly had various bandaids in his fingers or hands. I loved that show, by the way, and lament the lack of fun, middle of the road comedies on tv now.
But I digress. I have been known to say to my husband, “ I seem to be unaware of my extremities “. Tonight, for example, I was simply walking from the kitchen drawers to the table with a small can opener in my hand to open a fresh jar of chili sauce for supper and I swung my hand, grazed the back of my finger on the ( not sharp) corner of a wooden kitchen chair. I then realized I was bleeding, having shaved some skin off the back of my finger by making contact with a not sharp wooden chair!
I’ve grazed my knuckles by reaching into a cupboard space to throw away garbage, and by reaching into the crisper drawer in the fridge. I can’t even begin to talk about gardening hand and finger injuries or the scratches ensued on my arms from cutting back shrubs. I’ve only today removed the bandaid from my big toe ( not even going to explain).
Is it my age? Am I walking like a gorilla now? I smack my elbow in doorways more often than I want to admit. The doorways haven’t become more narrow and I haven’t become ( much) wider. I have a bruise on the inside of my knee that I’ve been watching evolve through the colour wheel. I don’t even know how I got that bruise.
So all those of you whose age would be rounded to 60 ( or more), can you relate, or am I just a clutz?
