for the lack of it anyway. I have never been the most graceful person and do not have a decent sense of balance (or direction) but today, thank goodness for my dog. I was looking for my cat Arlo, went down 3 steps and opened the basement door. There was the cat, wondering why I was yelling his name all around the house. I head back up the 3 steps into the kitchen, or so I thought. I must have forgot my feet on step 1. I fell flat over on my face, or would have but my ever present velcro dog saved me from the worst. Instead of landing face first on the floor, I grabbed for the dog and landed on him, then slid down the rest of the way to the floor. Now i hurt and need a nap. darn it! DH was in the kitchen and saw it all: and laughed once he knew I wasnt hurt. I swear, this isnt my best act of gracefullness but its close. Right after we were first married, I got out of the pickup and forgot to put my feet on the ground. Fell flat out of the door, with me feet still in the pickup. Im off for a nap, tell me I am not the only klutz on BYC.
