So you say this isn’t a surprise to you? Child, please…
Let me tell you something dumb I did this weekend. And then you tell me something silly or embarrassing you’ve done lately, m’kay? We built our house last year on a lot that was covered in trees. Several had fallen down over the years, so parts of our lot have huge, old trees that need to be cut up and hauled away. One in particular had really taken a beating from termites, so the outside of the trunk was just as soft as could be. I could dig the wood out like dirt, which was strangely addictive. So then I decided to give it some nice front kicks, because the mental image of me kicking into a tree trunk made me feel very powerful. Like a superhero, you might say. Well, it was then that I decided to get fancy and give it a roundhouse kick to the tree’s imaginary groin.
Let me tell you, that tree’s groin was way too strong. It seems the termites hadn’t quite worked their way to that particular area. The top of my foot hit that wood and hyperextended my ankle! I couldn’t cry for laughing at how idiotic I probably looked…a 32 year old woman going kung fu on a dead tree! And the tree won!
So, please make me feel better about myself and share something you’ve done that embarrasses you? Please???
