Looking in the mirror- turning around, slipping on some clothes and landing flat on my face. While my sister was videoing it XD

One time I was with a student of mine who uses a wheelchair and I was pushing him around a local town and ended up banging the chair against a cobble and then banging it into the pavement and then smacking it into the bottom shelves at a newsagents-the student was laughing hysterically at me!

Once a few years ago we had to do this relay race at school. I was really nervous cos I knew something bad was going to happen. I managed to run my part without tripping or making a fool of myself until the end when I slipped and fell flat on my back. My hwole year and about 6 teachers saw. :oops:

Every now and then when I get excited I essentially lose control for a second or two and run up and down the room. Other people tend to find it amusing and I have always been able to see the funny side.

I do the same thing-mainly when I am listening to music but, when I was a teenager, I used to run round all the time without music as I didn't have an IPod then. I remember I used to run up and down the corridor of my boarding house and, one time, I lost coordination and tripped and did a side skid right outside a staff's flat. Everyone downstairs heard and my backside was sore for quite a few days!

I buckled and fell into a mud puddle last week, and I came home looking like a monster :lol:

Had to go in a tanning booth on sunday to start a tan for comp (i know weird but cause i'm on a squad of girls doing it i'd stand out as a ghost in all the pictures so i have to do it :( ) so i just finished my time and i come back out the pod to start putting clothes on. However there is no seat so i am left to do the dreaded putting shoes on while balancing on one leg well it was at this point i lose balance and learn there was a bin in the booth of which i proceded to fall backwards over into the booth wall then through it, safe to say next person in the queue in shop wet themselves with laughter.

i keep on walking into walls which is kind of annoying :oops: :oops: :oops:
it is quite embarrasing when near a large crowd of people

I have a countless number of these, my hands aren't known as dyspraxihands for nothing.

If I had to pick one, it would be a few months ago when I dropped some cream cheese on my foot. I tried to shake my foot to get rid of it, but managed to end up kicking it across the kitchen, leaving stuck to the wall in a perfect blob.

Once I was in the bathroom getting changed for a bath, I bent down to take my socks of...and head butted the sink. In fact I hit it so hard I had to go to A&E with a mild concussion and miss a day of school. I still haven't lived it down. :lol:

Like most I have lots... A few that I remember well are: walking into a lampost on the way to school around 6 years ago, ending flat on my back after triping over my feet whist sprinting in s2 or 3 and more recently aka yeaterday falling off a seat, dropping tuna off of a spoon into other food :/ and knocking over a glass. All were hilarious in one way or another. XD

I was feeling quite worried about organising my dissertation as well as other work and general life until i read the posts in this topic, which made me chuckle! I've had many dyspraxic moments but i would say my favourite was at school, when i walked up a flight of stairs, tripped on the top step and flew into a set of doors. Couldn't stop laughing for at least five minutes. Luckily i was alone with one of my friends so nobody else saw.

Also, my friends often laugh at me for tripping over absolutely nothing, particularly when i do it multiple times in quick succession.

Im just procrastinating now rather than going to sleep, perhaps i should post in that forum too.

My best one would probably be when I was visting the New Forest. I was walking with a couple of friends and munching on a biscuit, I fumbled with the biscuit for a moment and then fell into the stream we were walking besides! I came out very wet and without my flapjack but I came out laughing too.

I also once walked into the lamp post at the corner of my street... Face first and full throttle. I had a black eye for weeks but I now look back on it as funny, not traumatic! XD
