I love these stories. Keep them coming.
ME: Dad guess what I did today?
Dad: A triple kip walkover spring?
LOL that is so true! When my DD does her splits people always gasp. I'm like what are you talking about she could sleep like that or watch tv in that position.
haha everyone is amazed that we can do splits and im like guys im not even that flexable!
OMG--I'm cracking up reading all this!!
My 9 yr old dd was in PE class in school and they were playing volleyball and this one boy said to her, "You can do a back handspring but you can't hit a volleyball????" Little does he know my dd has no hand-eye coordination WHATSOEVER!!! She is horrible at ball sports and runs away from the ball screaming!!!
A while ago in class we were talking about decimals and somehow scores came up so she asked my classmate (who apparently was a high level gymnast but I don't believe her) what would be the best score you can get in gymnastics? And she said a 9.999. I tried so hard not to laugh
people at school are always like: "can you do a back flip"
i'm like: "yeah"
and then they say "can you do it now"
and we are in the middle of a class or like outside on pavement studying or something
and i'm like "um... no i'm not gonna do one now!"
and they're like: "well why not?"
oh and i'm on the cheerleading squad and i don't like to tumble on gym floors because i have knee and wrist problems so i only tumble when we get to competition. and this one girl on my team was like:
"well maybe next year we can get a real tumbler who can do like back flips and stuff"
[and this 'real tumbler' she was talking about can do a bhs... with a heavy spot and thats all]
i was about to punch her in the face!
At a party, one of our neighbors overheard me talking to a friend about the upcoming MEET season.
After finding out that DD was a gymnast, the neighbor confessed that she originally thought we followed some kind of religion in which we were only allowed to eat MEAT during certain times of the year.
