Reaching for the floor



I would like to announce to those of you that see this that I finally touched my toes! This journey has been long and painful at times, but it feels really good to have accomplished a goal.

I originally planned on being able to touch my toes by graduation, but I wasn't very diligent in my nightly stretches. However, thanks to a quick ten minute stretch almost every night for the past two weeks, I was finally able to do it.

I can't go right down and touch my toes yet; I usually have to warm up for several minutes first. But still. I've never done this before, and now I can check it off my list of goals in life. Next step: palms to the floor! Or maybe the splits! There's no stopping me now!

That's so exciting! I was so happy when you shared your secret with me.

I guess the secret's out, Brenda. You were the first person to know though. You knew before my roommate did!

"Don't stop me now
'cause I'm having a good time.

I'm a shooting star leaping through the skies
Like a tiger defying the laws of gravity
I'm a racing car passing by like Lady Godiva
I'm gonna go go go
There's no stopping me!"

I love Queen.

Hooray for the art of flexibility!
There is a reason I pushed and pulled and knocked you over, my dear. And here it is! A bendable, twistable, toe-touching wonder! And her name is Brittany Packard.
Baby Monkey?
