Clumsiness

The strangest thing happens to me sometimes. I have a day or two of clumsiness where I am almost dangerous in the kitchen.
The last time this happened was last week. I somehow misjudged, thought there was enough space on the counter and put this white mug down. It totally missed and this is what happened.
Then the next day at work, I misjudged distances again and one of my work mugs slipped out of my hand and broke beautifully (all over the floor in millions of little pieces).
That night I was cooking and the garlic & chilli mix slipped from my hands again and landed up all over the kitchen floor.
I read once that it happens because of our hormones. Apparently it's to do with our spatial awareness at this time. I don't know much further than that, but since then I have noticed that I'm usually having my period when I go into clumsy mode. Then again, I'm not very good spatially at the best of times :)
Sometimes I'll cut my finger while chopping onions, burn myself when taking things out of the oven or spill coffee, sugar, etc. The good thing is sooner or later, I figure it out and call for my husband to help because then he knows that me being in the kitchen is just a bad idea all round.
Is this weirdness just me, or does it happen to anybody else?

  1. Yes, this sort of thing happens to me. I usually track it to extreme fluctuations in the weather. If we go from sunny to wet, or frigid to mild, I get clumsy. Weird, but true.

  2. Hmmm, interesting. I'll have to check that out.

    Nice to know I'm not the only one out there!

  3. I have read that hormones can cause it. Well look it on the bright side. You have a photo for Saturday's photo hunt now. :)
