Okay, I’m one of those people who is really, really into the Olympics. Call me lame. I don’t care. The Summer Games are my favorite, and have been for years and years. My family’s all about it too, so that’s what we’ve been doing for the past few evenings – watching the Olympics.
The other night we were watching the women’s gymnastics prelims and all of a sudden my mom was like, “I could never do that – I couldn’t be an Olympic athlete on TV and everything.”
Ignoring the “well, duh” impulse, we asked why, and here’s what she said:
“Because every time I messed up I’d say ‘SHIT’ and they’d never be able to put me on camera. I’d be the SHIT-girl.”
So now my mom is officially the Shit-Girl.
Random: Someone in my office keeps folding our toilet paper into those points like they do at hotels. That’s weird.
Also, Ginny is starting to walk a bit unassisted. We’re starting to get her to practice walking for as long as she can without hanging on to the walker and she’s doing pretty well, although she complains that it’s jerky and awkward. It’s just like when a baby starts to walk, though – with practice she’ll get better at it.
That’s all I have today. Woo.
