I Ran Into a Pole!

I am normally a very clumsy person.  I run into things ALL the time and get ridiculous bruises from who knows what clumsy act I have just committed. 

Yesterday as I was walking down the street with our friends (Dennis and Karen) who were in town, Karen was telling me the most hilarious poop story ever.  Sorry, but that is really what it was about.  I was so into the story that I was looking at her, shocked at what she was telling me, not watching where I was going and SMACK!  I ran my FACE right into a pole and it was LOUD!  I had been walking at a pretty good speed and it literally stopped me in my tracks!  There were about five or six people in front of us that all turned around because of how loud it was, not to mention that couple behind that saw that whole thing!  I was so embarrassed.  I was laughing/crying because it was so stupid, funny, painful, embarrassing, ridiculous, etc.  I immediately got a little knot and red spot where the pole attacked my eye.  I iced it right away and thankfully there is not a bruise here right now.

Does pregnancy make you more clumsy than you already are?  I think I would just like to blame it on that, but I am already a clumsy person.  But a pole?!?!  REALLY!?  Who runs their face into a pole?

    Hey Jen, with my first pregancy I was bowling and forgot to let go of the ball and fell down the alley. I was just barely 4 months pregnant… so yes, I think being pregnant makes you clumsy. It made me… that was my excuse, so use it 😀

    Buddy, my dog, remember Buddy, Jen? Well, once on a walk I wasn’t watching and neither was he and Buddy ran smack into a parked truck. I felt so bad for him, but had to laugh… it was so weird, my dog running into something that big, and me letting him (accidentally). He wasn’t pregnant.

    it’s in the genes jen…just last summer, i ran smack dab into a tree. oh yes. right in front of wendy peterson, and several guys from work. my head was turned, and my ear split open and was bleeding. i obviously didn’t have pregnancy to blame for my clumsiness.
