Feeling Klutzy

January 20, 2010

I’m no image of grace at the best of times, but yesterday was really a new low. In the course of making dinner, I managed to drop a butter knife, a measuring cup, and an open canister of Progresso bread crumbs (the latter fanning out in dramatic fashion all over the kitchen floor; the cats wisely dove for cover before getting involuntarily breaded).

I’ve heard that your joints get all loosey-goosey before birth, to better accommodate this proportionately large person trying to exit a proportionately small hole. I would think it was too early on in the pregnancy for that. I’m a little concerned that by month 9 I’m just going to be one quivering, boneless blob caroming around the kitchen. Eric might be wise to follow the cats’ lead and dive for cover himself.
