What a day! So much to share with you guys about our little visit to Children’s Hospital this morning. While I’m gathering all the pictures and getting a post about that ready, you can go read my column about learning to curl with The Pittsburgh Curling Club.
Not only will you get to read sentences like this:
The first time I fell, I was sliding so slowly it wasn’t so much of a fall as it was a gentle giving out of the legs. I smiled. Small setback. Every Olympian has setbacks. Look at Dan Jansen.
The fourth time I fell, my husband was snapping iPhone pictures of me rolling around on the ice like a seal and then posting them immediately to his Facebook account with captions such as, “Ur doing it wrong.” I questioned my decision to bring him along.
If you scroll down, you’ll also get to see tons of pictures like this:
But the pièce de résistance (literally “piece of resistance,” I believe) would be the awesome little video filmed and edited by Alex Wander.
Highlights: The look on my face at the 40 second mark, the falling that begins at the 1:12 mark, and the “HAHA GINNY SUCKS” music that kicks in at the 1:30 mark.
I just want you to know, I WAS REALLY TRYING.
