Sure I'm an athlete
My friend Vicki and I were discussing our lack of athletic ability the other day. We agreed it wasn't actually our LACK of ability as it was the lack of proper venues for athletes like ourselves. Here are sports where I could really make a name for myself:
Unextreme Hiking - I'm a great hiker. But only if I don't have to carry a pack, and there are plenty of benches along the route. And bathrooms. And not too many hills.
Badminton - but don't expect me to make any heroic dives
Softball - but only if I can bat. I'm a slammin' hitter. But please no base running or fielding.
Parading - I'd be wonderful in a parade, walking along waving and soaking in all the attention.
Ping-Pong - see Badminton
Power Napping - seriously don't even THINK about competing with me on this one.
Beach Biking - I like to bike on a nice flat beach. Gearing up or down is just exhausting.
Winter Walking - this covers two areas. Actually walking in the winter time, in proper attire, especially when it ends at a warm coffee shop. And walking around downtown at Northfield's Winter Walk - see last year's post.
Fishing - hey, I live in Minnesota!
