Weebels Wobble...

Do you remember Weebels?





"Weebels wobble but they don't fall down?"

For some reason that phrase popped into my head as I stomped around the neighborhood this morning trying to get in my 3 miles before heading into work.

You see, I wobble as I walk. 

I'm not sure when it happened but I can't seem to walk in a straight line anymore. 

Relatively straight?  Yes. 

But if I'm walking with someone else, side by side, I invariably wander into them. 

If I'm on my own, in the office or at home, I run into corners of walls, desks, chairs...

Consequently, I have bruises on both sides of my arms, hips and legs. 

You could say that I'm careless, maybe in too much of a hurry, maybe my depth perception is off. 

I have a different theory.

Over the last few years my center of gravity has shifted. 

Lower.

I used to be "Toothpick Tami".  That's what the kids used to called me when I was a kid. 

Stick straight I was. 

Now I'm shaped like a Weeble. 

No wonder I wobble.

Can falling down be far behind?

  3. I snorted my tea while reading this post! So THAT's the reason for bobbing and weaving - something I also do on a regular basis.

  4. Me? I'm just careless. Or simple-minded. Some days I feel like a ball in a pinball machine bouncing off walls, chairs, counters, etc. I think it's because my head is usually elsewhere. (Figuratively speaking, of course.) But then I have trouble walking and chewing gum at the same time. (I also fall UP stairs rather than down, but don't spread that around.)
