Just before Christmas, we finished our basement that had flooded 3 years earlier. Sure, we’ll probably have life-long asthma problems thanks to the black mold but hey, our man cave looks great! Now that my Chihuahua, Chi-Chi Barbados (God rest her furry soul) is gone, we could invest in nice carpet, not worried about dodging piss-landmines.
Saturday night, Carter and I were bored…like really bored. Given our weather right now is on par with Antarctica, it’s not like we felt like going out. To amuse himself (and to give me additional anxiety) he decided to coast down the basement stairs, over and over on his stomach. Below is the video of one of his many trips. Note how nimble, carefree and light he is.
Carter Gliding Down the Stairs
But I wanted a piece of the action too. I was curious if I could pull off the same feat. I had lost a few pounds, so perhaps I could coast down the stairs like a graceful swan; a delicate ballerina.
Instead, as I inched towards the bottom, I resembled what a sloth and hyena would look like if mated. I was essentially a slyena.
Are you ready for it? You can call me Grace if you like….
Me Not Gliding Down the Stairs
P.S. I was 100% sober when filming this. No seriously, this is me sober.
I don’t think the age difference is the handicap here… You have boobs! Looks like fun though. Next he should try it in a laundry basket, but you should probably sit that one out.
This is hot meses son replying and she would not let me do it!
Maybe ask if you promise to wear a helmet and put a bunch of pillows at the bottom… 😉
I’m going to read this to him after he gets home from school. 🙂
I read this to Carter and after the laundry basket comment, I exclaimed NO! I told him he could respond to you! ?
I feel like I just met a celebrity! That was unreal!! 😀
Aww….he’ll love reading that! And guess what? I am paying him $5 to write a blog post that I am going to feature on my blog. The topic? Why humor is important. This will be adorbs, coming from a 10-year-old!
Can’t wait to read it! He’ll be like your ghost writer. 🙂
A cutie-patutie ghost writer! LOL!
laughter is the best medicine they say. It is even better when you can laugh at yourself and be silly.
Exactly! As many age, some see humorous people as immature or frivilous. I couldn’t disagree more! And Arlene, you are so right! It is the best medicine. In fact, my blog is a big ole’ dose of a medicine I can’t even pronounce! ???
I’m so glad I managed to catch these video clips! Made my morning!
Ha!! So glad! It made us laugh! That’s for sure!!
