The Olympics have started…are you watching? I love watching all of the sports, even the ones I don’t understand, like the one where you slide that thingy on the ice and try to make it stop on the bulls eye while commanding two teammates to clean the ice as you go! We may have to pick up this sport…my kitchen floor could use a good cleaning!
We watched the skeleton races the other night and the first thing I thought was…..
At what point do you say to yourself…I bet I can slide 80 mph down that ice chute…on my stomach…head first…here goes nothing!? Want to know what my kids first thoughts were? “That is so awesome!” Go figure! And that new event where they are skiing backwards up ramps to flip around in the air before landing…backwards again! Are you kidding me?
You know what sport I think they should add to the Winter Olympics next? Snow Dressing Your Children! That is a Winter Olympic sport if I ever heard one! By the time I get my kids all dressed and ready to go out I have broken a sweat, usually a nail or two, and have invented a new language to mumble so as not to curse in front of my children! Oh, wait..wait! I’ve got an even better one. How about the How fast can you push your van out of your garage to jump start it when you’re late for school and it’s snowing and 15 degrees outside? And the grande finale of the Games? Who can open their winter electric/gas bill without cursing, kicking the wall, screaming, crying or just plain passing out? If you can do this, you deserve the Gold!…
I Am A loser!
