    Smile making walking a bit tricky

    I wasn' the only one keeping my fingers crossed for the DIB--Dylan had texted me to say he wouldn't just keep his fingers crossed but his toes too, which might make walking a bit tricky....

    Does tricky here mean difficult or requiring skill and tact? Thanks.

    It means difficult, and the statement is a joke. It is not meant to be taken literally.
