I have done this as well. I was in a long cast for 8 weeks! Nice to meet a fellow klutz. ; )

And where were you a citizen?

1.  I have a face full of freckles, but I only had one when I was born.

2.  I'm a 1st generation American.  My parents are from Jamaica and England.

3.  I am a domestic abuse survivor.

4.  I was a valedictorian of my 8th grade class.

5.  I started college pre-med, but changed my mind half-way through when I realized that I don't like people...especially sick people.

6.  I write poetry and short stories.

7.  I don't wear yellow or orange because they make me look jaundiced.

8.  When I was little my daddy called me Egghead Jr (like the Looney Toons character).  I thought it was because I had a big head and wore glasses but he told my husband it was because I was so serious, smart and mature for my age.

9.  I sang back up for a Christian Rap group in college.

10. I can't spell worth a damn!  Spell check is my best friend.

7. I am the biggest Klutz ever I broke my wrist tripping over my own feet. 

I feel you.  I fell down my basement stairs two days in a row, the second time carrying a cup of hot tea which somehow I managed to splash everywhere but on myself.

And where were you a citizen?

No cast, just the splint with the sling (ugh, not so fun) and no using my right arm.  I am right-handed, yeah, fun to do homework and tests left-handed.

I had citizenship in Germany, Belgium, and the US.

1. I am an identical twin. I love having the kind of relationship with someone that most people only dream of. 

2. I love to learn. My favorite tv networks are Nat Geo and The Science Channel.

3. I am a homebody. I can be bubbly and outgoing, but I prefer to be in little groups of close friends (or just at home alone).

4. I am a cat person, but my family is allergic to cats, so no cats for me.

5. I was on track to be the valedictorian of my small private high school when I left. I was on track to graduate in the top 5% in my public school of 800+ seniors when I left due to getting pregnant. I was determined to smear my high school career. (don't worry, I did graduate eventually!)

6. I like to wear jewelry, but I am very picky with what I think it cute enough to wear. I like simple and classic.

7. I was raised in a conservative Christian household, but I do not recognize with Christianity anymore. I am still very spiritual, though.

8. I sing a lot! Several coworkers have caught me mid-song.

9. I am hopelessly optimistic. hehe. oxymoron.

10. I have a love for language. I actively try to broaden my vocabulary on a regular basis.

I have many scars to prove my klutziness.  And it looks like my daughter has inherited that trait.

I was only 9 when I broke mine! It was during a walk-a-thon for my school. haha! And it was my dominant arm, too. I am not too bad at writing with my left hand because of the experience.

 Yeah...my older son is so gangly and clumsy right now...I'm hoping he'll grow out of it.  I didn't, but I'm still hopeful for his sake.
