You know, I am amazed at how for years I have put away canned goods and the labels are almost always facing away. I have to deliberately turn them toward the front every time. Happenstance never favors me on that. They are facing away. I have paid attention as I start to release my hold and sure enough..faced away or enough away to make it hard to tell what is in the can. You would think the law of averages would favor me more often than one time out of maybe 75 attempts! Amazing.
Then there is my 5'1" self making my way through doorways and banging my elbow bones into the door handle. WHY can't I get thru a door without knocking into the handle? I have done that for YEARS! A child, a teen, young woman and the older one that I am now. My elbows and my sleeves are just exactly at the right height (I am a shrimp) to catch on door handles too. European lever-type ones especially! It can really tick a person off! I walk a hundred miles an hour so catching myself like that jerks me back like a rubber band!
Then, why oh why can I not hold the house keys sufficiently tightly enough that I can unlock the house door without first dropping the keys? I seem to always have a handful of grocery bags too. That makes it even more annoying.
Is it even possible for me NOT to knock my poor bony widdle knee cap or calf into the corner of the coffee table less that 10 times a year? I think not.
How many more times will I knock my left kneecap into the steering column with it's knobs and accouterments, blackening my flesh yet again and hurting for a week?
How about reaching carefully into the hot oven to get a pan of whatever out...being very very careful only to get an oven burn anyway! SIGH.
Oh well, you only live once. May as well be accident prone.
