Yet klutz sufferers must face these hardships every day. I myself have endured klutziness for years, but recently, the disorder seems to have progressed. I’ve had to adapt my lifestyle in various ways, and may have to do more.
Here are some of the measures I’ve taken.
- I always wear a red shirt when eating Italian cuisine. (I may have to get red pants also.)
- I wear big puffy winter clothes and a bike helmet all year round, indoors and out.
- I double-, triple-, and quadruple-check email messages for typos before hitting Sned. (Also, I’m campaigning to have words like “teh” and “hardward” added to the dictionary.)
- When hammering a nail in something, I hold the nail with a long pair of pliers instead of my fingers. Then I wind up gluing it instead.
- I keep plenty of glue remover around.
