Greetings ladies and gents~

Hope you all are having a fabulous Friday!

Today’s quote:

“Gravity is a contributing factor in 73 percent of all accidents involving falling objects.”

Dave Barry

I was happy to find Mr Barry’s quote this morning cuz gravity and I have been in a bit of a fussy way lately. First of all, every time I drop tends to go crashing down onto the floor…and then it breaks.  We now have no wine glasses!  The last one went down after my arm knocked the glass off the counter.  I don’t really know what my arm was doing there.  And I hadn’t even had any wine yet!

My fella thinks the next wine “glasses” we get should be in plastic!

He might be right.

I also have been on a “break my favorite vases” kick as well.  I will cut flowers from my garden, bring them to the sink, get them all ready to put in the vase.  Get the vase.  Then something happens.  Gravity comes and rips that vase out of my hand…and before I know it…the vase is broken. It has happened to 3 of my vases this summer.  3!!!  I only have a few more left!

Glassware, me and gravity do not get along too well!

As a human in a body…I have had lots of one on ones with gravity.  Tripping over something and falling.  Dancing about on walks, tripping over my feet…and falling.  As a kid, I fell out of tree houses, I fell off bikes, I fell off fences, horses, roofs…you name it…I have probably fallen off of it.

I used to think I was a klutz.

Now, I think gravity has a hold on me!

Recently, gravity has been upping the anti.  It is doing weird things to this body of mine.  For example…it doesn’t matter how many butt crunches I do…my butt is heading down to the back of my legs!  It doesn’t matter that I am fairly flat chested…my little boobs are heading down south as well.  I wouldn’t call myself athletic…but, I do work out.  I do yoga.  I do pilates.  I hike and walk…and trip…a bunch of times a week.  It doesn’t seem to matter.  All sorts of strange down ward motions are happening all over my body.

Gravity has taken over!

As I sit here, on the brink of my 47th birthday…I realize there is not much I can do about it.  Being older has given me that kind of wisdom!!!  So, I will continue to move this cute little droopy body of mine.  I will continue to buy glass ware…I will continue to dance, trip and fall.

What else is a human to do?

Wishing you a graceful day :)

  1. Forget plastic wine glasses. Get a rubber floor! :)

    These multiple breakages are messages from the Universe telling you to Pay Attention! I know this from first hand experience. :)

    Good luck!

    Oh, and I love the Dave Barry quote. He’s a genius.
