just some words

I am without a doubt one of the clumsiest people on the planet. Today at work I seriously stubbed my toe, smashed my head (hard) into a wooden shelf, and earlier burned my knuckle on the oven. I was thinking that I am the epitome of accident-prone, but I don't feel like that word even begins to describe what I am. Thanks to Thesaurus.com, let's see if we can find something a little more fitting...
