The Lost Stooge

I think Mr. Wonderful brings out the spaz in me. I've had stuff like this happen in other relationships, but it seems to occur more often than usual in this one and I just can't figure out what's going on.

Last night, in the darkness of his room...as things were getting very romantic...I went to shift positions and caught my pinky in his left nostril. It was like a bad cartoon. I couldn't even fully see what happened, I just suddenly felt something warm and moist around my finger and heard him moan, "Owwww!" Although I felt terrible for hurting him, I must have laughed for 10 minutes afterwards.

Later, he went to gently lay his head on my tummy and I clocked him in the jaw. It's like the pathways in my nervous system that connect brain to limbs just shut down in his presence. I feel like a big, gangly, 14-year old. Maybe that's a good thing. But poor Mr. W is going to start looking like an amateur boxer if I keep this up...

I kicked a guy I was dating in the balls once on accident. I would love to think it's the guys I'm with that make me clumsy, but it's ALL me (including when I fall a flight of stairs, run into furniture, trip over air...)

When I first read this, and you said "pinkie", I was picturing your pinkie toe, and wondering just what position you were changing to or from...Glad it was just your finger. Sounds to me like you have Mom's genes, with your clumsy antics.

I almost snorted coffee through my nose. Pinkie in the nostril? How embarassing! I love moments like this that take a serious situation and turn it into a laughfest. It's hard to umm....regain composure after that.

Moneypenny - Balls trump nostrils for sure. That is hilarious and very embarrassing.

Sister and Laura - It was not the number between 68 and 70. Stop thinking naughty things on my blog.

Semi - I regained composure temporarily but laughed later as I was falling asleep and about 5 times throughout the next day. :)
