People say this a lot.
"If being obnoxious was an Olympic sport, you'd win gold!"
We've all heard it.
I've been watching the Olympics a TON this year (I always do!). Wait a minute, I don't think I've ever explained how much I seriously love the Olympics! (And America!)
LOVE LOVE LOVE.
I love the Olympics.
Anyway, now that we're clear on that, let's get down to what I really meant to say here.
I was thinking today, what if we got to decide what sports were in the Olympics? Like we would keep most of the normal events, but include some other ones that are equally exciting and much more entertaining? Or maybe we could just add the EXTRA Olympics or something. I dunno, I just think it would be sweet. The possibilities are literally endless - every event could be something from Wipeout or Minute to Win it. Or they could just be my own genius ideas. Here's an example list of events, straight from my Olympic-fanatic brain.
Trampoline dunk contest
Playing piano with feet
One-handed egg cracking
Giant bubble blowing
Name that tune
Baby diaper changing
Large blanket folding
Basement fort building
Bigger and Better scavenger hunting
There are so many options. You might be laughing at me, but seriously, you know how much endurance and determination it takes to lick, say, 50 envelopes? I went through that at graduation. NEVER AGAIN.
But seriously, I love the Olympics.
