I’ve decided that I am going to be an Olympian. I don’t need to do any training, I do it everyday with Master Sporty and Miss Princess.
I think there might be a few of you out there that could come and join me.
My only problem is that I’m not quite sure which part of the Olympic team to try out for, there are so many possibilities.
- I DIVE head first into all sorts of volunteer activities regardless of the possible outcome. For example, we all know I’m not the world’s best cook, but when Master Sporty’s school auxiliary put out a plea for people to bake for their cross-country bake sale, guess what? I DIVED right in there, did a triple somersault with a pike and whipped up a batch of chocolate brownies that I hadn’t made since 2007 (true story!) and they sold out within minutes of the bake stall opening – GOLD medal right there.
- I can run and hurdle as fast, but maybe not so gracefully, as a deer. Take today for example, Miss Princess got bored while we were shopping and so did a runner through the shopping centre (numerous times). At first I tried the mother call “Chloe!, Stop Chloe, Stop NOW Chloe, STOP RIGHT NOW CHLOE!” to no avail. It was time to put on my running shoes and do the ‘harry bolt’ after her. I caught her…just – another GOLD medal.
- I freestyle my way through cooking dinner each and every night, making it up as I go along and i often end up having to do a lot of backstroke to fix the messed up meal I’ve just made. Maybe I shouldn’t try out for the swimming team after all.
Or maybe I could just join the cheer squad, Master Sporty knows only too well what a good set of cheering lungs I have.
Which part of the Olympic team could you try out for?
