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.
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?
