I've had way too many...
I wouldn't call me clumsy, but I would say I'm stupid. I get into situations all the time that reflect my trust of people, my huge knowledge of Judo (yellow belt) and my complete and utter drunkenness!

But this story goes back many many moons and still makes me shudder. About 10 years of age on holiday with the folks in lovely rural somewhere. I decided walking at parent pace was way too boring and the low wall way too inviting to not be jumped on. So run and a leap I did, due to the curve of the road and my very small height I was unable to get whim of what was the other side. Just imaging a nice rock wall, alongside a country road protecting all and sundry from a huge gorge. The drop was to a river racing from recent rain, with big big scary boulders. So I was technically less that 2 foot from death!
