The Klutz

I don't know if any of you have ever read the book "Megan, the Klutz," but if you have, you've pretty much read my biography. I'm terribly accident prone, though some days are much worse than others. This morning was one of those days.
It started off as a normal morning, and I actually got out of the door on time, but then I remembered I had forgotten something. There was an empty (at least I thought so) can in my car, so I decided I'd toss it when I went back inside.
I'm carrying the can upside down, kind of swaying it back and forth (its empty remember). This is when I discovered it was NOT completely empty. A bit of Slim Fast had settled on the bottom of the can, and when I turned it upside down and swayed the can back and forth, it came out of the can. Now a normal person would have just gotten by with dumping the remaining bit on the ground. Not me! It splattered all over my white workout pants.
I guess I can be thankful that it didn't get on my work clothes. But being that I've determined to go to the gym at least three times a week, and I didn't have time to change and go to the gym, I had to go to the gym with a huge splattering of Slim Fast on my leg.
Fortunately the workout helped me release from of the frustration. So far this morning I've only thrown one thing at my boss. (It was an accident for real! If you don't believe me, maybe you should re-read the above!)
How many of you have had crazy moments like this? Please tell me I'm not alone!

Oh believe me your not alone... When I was young and lived at home, I took the bus to work....and walked the fairly long block to the bus stop.....and a bird graced me with his treasure, and it hit my head, and my skirt... What a mess......but things like that happen to me all the time.....I think it must mean we are special......LOL
