I hate watching sports on television, but normally the Olympics doesn’t affect me. I don’t watch much TV and the TV I do watch I watch online these days.
My husband is a sports fanatic though. Any kind of sporting event on television gets his complete unbroken attention until said event is over. Now that we’re staying with my parents and their enormous television for a little while that means watching the Olympics at every meal. How much volleyball can one person watch?
Now that I’m basically forced to watch some Olympic events on television, I’ve been trying to decide which events I would be competing in if I were an Olympic athlete. It wouldn’t be swimming because I hate chlorine. Once I decided I was going to swim laps in the public pool every morning to get in shape and I nearly drowned. Here’s a quick tip: If you are drowning in four feet of water don’t panic just try standing up. This only works if you’re over four feet tall though.
I might be good at Judo. I’m not a particularly good fighter, but I do excel at falling down. I enjoy sprinting, but I’m not very fast and I’ve noticed that the women in the event usually wear jewelery. I don’t have much jewelery so I’m sure I wouldn’t fit in.
If they only awarded metals for worrying I’m sure I would be able to win the gold. I may be the best worrier in the world. The endorsement deals would come rolling in.
If you haven’t read my latest book yet, maybe you should. People really like it and you might too. Here is what one person said …
[Flying Lessons] is very well written, the story line moves along seamlessly and culminates beautifully. The characters are well developed and it is easy to identify with them. The author shows great talent and I look forward to reading her other books. The book was truly unputdownable for me and I read it in one sitting … Joana James from Book Wormz
Don’t have an ereader, maybe you should get one. They’re all the rage in Arizona. I hear the Kindle is good. Check it out here.
