I was such a clumsy oaf earlier this evening as I was eating dinner. It started when I was slicing through my delicious pork chop and the plate slid off the table and dumped my meal all over the floor.
Hal looked up immediately after I unleashed a long stream of expletives regarding my stupidity. I grabbed a rag and began to clean up the mess I made. It was then that I noticed my Pepsi was perched rather precariously near the edge of the table. Immediately, but very calmly, I reached slowly to move the Pepsi away from the edge of the table. You can guess what happened. I knocked the Pepsi off of the table and onto the floor right where my dinner had landed a few minutes prior.
More cursing followed, and that pissed Hal off. He got mad because I lost my temper twice in less than 5 minutes. I haven’t made such a mess in years. I am still angry at myself for being so clumsy.
What do you do when something like this happens? Do you lash out like I did to release the negative energy?
I hope that it will be a very long time before I am that clumsy again.
