    1. I almost didn't post the bowling one because that is one of my biggest fears - it looks so painful! But then... I couldn't resist. :)

  2. You might suck at strutting, but you're great at blogging.

  5. Hahahaha! So very true! Especially with regards to the dancing - i often wonder what i look like while dancing. Happily not for too long or I would get embarrassed and stop!

    1. Me too, ha! That's why it's helpful to bring a whole bunch of people with you... then work your way into the middle so no one can see you rocking out like Carlton. ;)

    1. Don't encourage me! This blog could just turn into GIFs and cat pictures if I really went for it. ;)

  7. Haaaahaha Awesome post. My favorites were also bowling and dancing.

    Then again, people do not bowl with you after you've accidentally bowled backwards a few times. Do they have to make the balls so darned heavy?

    1. Ha, exactly! When I moved to New England I discovered the joys of candlepin bowling - you bowl with a ball about the size of a grapefruit, and you don't have to put your fingers in any scary holes! It's genius.

  8. I feel most bad for the pro bowler above. I mean, he's a pro bowler. That must be pretty embarrassing to not be able to throw a bowling ball.

    Also, I'm very much like that first day of spring pic. I'm currently hoveled out at home shunning the outdoors.

    1. If the weather would stop playing tricks on us, maybe I could finally emerge from my cave... but yes, like you, I definitely look a lot more like the reality than the expectation. ;)
