I’ve always been a klutz but lately I’m like a human wrecking ball.  I’m not sure what’s causing the extra clumsiness lately but I hope I’ll get back to normal soon.

Here’s a look at the damage caused by my recent klutziness.  When moving a Pyrex lid from the stove to the sink, I dropped it on the tile floor and it broke into about a million pieces.  Well that may be a slight exaggeration but pieces went all over the place including on top of the kitchen table, and into the foyer many yards away.  My Shop Vac got a workout cleaning up that mess.  Another accident had me knock a microphone off my home studio desk.  It landed on the floor and wrecked the connector cable.  Then when in the storage closet pulling out a box of Christmas decorations, I whacked my head on a metal rod.

They say bad things happen in threes so I’m hoping that I'll be accident-free for a while. But I doubt it.  There are some bruises from when I walked into a table, and a cut in my thumb from when the knife slipped out of my hand.

Some online reading tells me that frequent clumsy behavior can be a sign of a medical condition like stroke, but it can also be attributed to stress.  If I had to guess, I’d say stress is probably MY  reason for being “Butterfingers” lately.  Here's an interesting article about clumsiness.  https://www.bustle.com/articles/84286-what-causes-clumsiness-and-can-it-be-cured-what-science-knows-about-people-who-always-be

Are you finding yourself more accident-prone lately?  Do you think it's because of the busyness and stress of the season?
