Clumsiness. A free and clearly legit online dictionary defines it as "Lacking physical coordination, skill, or grace; awkward." . Yep, I think most of my friends and family would say that my picture could easily appear under "clumsy" in a dictionary.

Well, as a wise person once told me, it is what it is. From now on I think I'll just dress in bubble wrap, at least then I will enjoy the sound of popping plastic bubbles when I fall down.
