Klutzes can relate
Re Mike O’Connor’s column (Backchat, Apr 5-6), I am another member of the faithful klutz society. At only 14 years old, I have tripped over the dog and stretched ligaments in my elbow, tripped on a crack at school and dislocated my shoulder, only to then fall on it again and pop it back into place. I quite often trip up or down stairs, perform random gravity checks just to make sure everything is working and just the other day I managed to slice my arm open with a box-cutter. Kind of makes you wonder what the future holds, doesn’t it?
