[The Bigger Klutz]

In January, a group of CCF guys had a welcome back bash at their house.  They had a great turnout, some cool live music, and so on and so forth.  While I was there, my friend Jon and I got into a conversation about which of us was more "graceful."  To prove which of us was the bigger klutz, we had a marker flipping contest.  To my great chagrin (and utter shock) I actually, for the first time in my life, caught the pen--with my left hand even!!! Yeah, Jon won that day. 

So yesterday, I hobbled over to Jon and showed him my foot.  "I win." 

"I sprained my foot before too... How'd you do it?"

{insert story here}

"Did you fall?"

"Well, no, but let me tell you about last semester when I was running late to history class..."

After some discussion, we finally decided to call our gracefulness competition to a draw, and we shook on it. 

I must say, I am glad it's the twenty-first century, and it's humorous when people are clumsy, rather than disgraceful.  I can laugh at myself and have others laugh with me instead of hiding my face in shame.
