ladies and gentlemen, my two overused words of the week

I have just become aware that I keep trying to work the following two words into conversation:

ham-handed
deploy


I'm onto me.

Tonight I used the word "hamstrung" and created some confusion. I was describing an actor and the person I was talking with said, "Yes! He is so ham-handed!"

Then I tried to explain what hamstrung actually meant, but I had a hard time. The best I could come up with is that one's hamstrings have been damaged and left to rot in the past tense, making it impossible for one to run.
