Default clumsy old fool

I don't know if this is a new thing but I have become more aware of it, and more annoyed by it, recently. The 'it' to which I refer is my tendency to physical awkwardness, not a day goes by without me knocking over, bumping into or tripping over something. I drop things, spill things, break things and generally bumble through my day in the cack-handed manner of a bull who has had too much wine with his lunch and found himself in an over-stocked china shop. Are my physical malfunctions connected to my social ineptitude and therefore indicative of a subsequent deterioation as I lurch, in my ungainly fashion, towards the twilight of my years? Or does it indicate some loss of mental function which points, shakinglingly, towards the dreaded alzheimers and...and...what was I talking about?

Yep. I've always been a bit clumsy but its getting worse. Tripping up, dropping things. I want to try tai chi or something to get co-ordination back.

I have found a new cat-like agility since growing up, moving out and living on my own, learned by negotiating trash and rubbish and discarded beercans with a ninja-like dexterity.

Just wondering: Do you experience these accidents more when you're around others (as compared to when you're alone)? Personally, my brain functions at about 50% efficiency when I'm in the company of others (especially strangers).

Interesting that. I'm not sure but I don't think so, it certainly happens enough times on my own for me to notice it and be both annoyed and worried by it.

I've never tried Tai Chi myself but several friends have and they've all said positive things about it. My advice is go for it.

Agreed, Tai Chi is helpful for balance and improving co-ordination and a great away relax. I'm going to try Yoga this week but worried I'm going to pull a muscle and more not being the flexible type at all.
