I have a wonderful amount of blogging that I want to do about my trip to Hiroshima this weekend and finally getting to meet the wonderful Nadia Lee and her husband, Hero Material.
But I seem to have given myself a mild concussion, so please stand by.
In the meantime, I want to discuss something else! Why am I such a clumsy individual? Are other people out there? Is there some reason that I manage to injure almost anything that can ever be injured, in the stupidest ways possible? (Current injury cause: slamming my head into a taxi door by accident.)
Surely, I'm not the clumsiest person out there, am I?
My husband's theory is that even though my glasses and contacts correct my vision a huge amount, they're not perfect. Combined with my natural klutz tendencies, he thinks that I just simply don't see things. But if his theory is correct, then why don't we hear all these stories about the vision-impaired injuring themselves? What am I doing wrong??
(ETA: Anyone who suggests that I need a cane like a blind person, or that I should avoid going anywhere will be instantly deleted. I can safely drive a car. I am not legally blind. My glasses and contacts correct me to somewhere in the range of 20/30-20/40, although my ophthalmologist keeps telling me it's as close to 20/20 as he can get it.
Also, I went to Odyssey last year with someone who IS legally blind, and she got along just fine in everyday life. In fact, she has better knife skills than I do, which is really neat. =) So I don't easily accept the argument that my vision means that I should limit my activities.)
