OLYMPICS WHAT? MONDAY

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

Imagine you are in the Olympics. You're not lazing by your backyard pool or hanging out at the beach; you're not watching the games on TV; you are an actual Olympian (and don't consider your true ability level -- you made it to the games so you're at the top of your sport).

In what sport are you competing? Will you win a medal?


If the actual sports at the Olympics don't interest you, then you may invent one. For example, my pal Jordan wants to have a spit wad competition. He's sure he would win the gold medal in that one.


As for me, I am on the men's rowing team. I know I've posted their photo before, but here it is one more time just in case you missed it:


I would be right in the middle of all those nice sexy sweaty young men, rowing away as fast as I could go, and even though the men's British team is better than we are, with me to spur on the gang, we would bring home the gold medal. Or, maybe, I would be the cox.

I, of course, would be very modest about it all and give the credit for our win to the hot shirtless young men with whom I changed in the locker room.


Now, how about you? In what sport are you competing? Will you win a medal?


Infinities of love,

Lola

  3. I want to be on the rowing team too, just to make sure those guys get the medal, you know?....My sport would definitely be track and field, probably the 100 or 200 m, but I wouldn't want to look like the women sprinters, their muscles are way to big for my taste. I could easily do cycling too, but how about a fashion race? The athlete with the best three outfits changes wins the gold. All I need is a sponsor, so I can buy all my 'equipment' on 5th Ave.....:)
    Love, Alex

    1. I sense a new reality show: "Fashion Race."

  4. I'd be on the national bad movie team (otherwise populated by nubile twenty-something year old female former gymnasts :), testing our tolerances against the very worst that low budget directors can throw at us.

    1. We have a nubile former gymnast who does commercials for the car dealership where my son works. He says she wears about two inches of makeup. Sounds very low budget to me.

  5. Competition for readers as they act out what they are reading. A bit boring, don't you think so?

    1. No! I think that would be the most fun of all. We did that in high school.

  7. Dear Janie, for many, many years I've said to my friends that if "Sleeping" was an Olympic event, I'd win the gold every four years! I have sleeping down to an art form! Peace.

    1. Congratulations on your gold medal for sleeping, Dee. Imagine I have just placed it around your neck and the weight has dragged you down to your couch, where you will win another gold in napping.

  8. I would be in the equestrian events...hanging on for dear life but loving every bit of it! As for Branden ...well, he'd be good at the breast stroke...and not the kind in the pool ;)
    In actuality, this would be my Olympic advertisement:

    1. I love those e-cards. As for Branden and the breast stroke . . . I'm speechless.

  9. I would get a gold medal for procrastination! I am so so good at it! But really I would just like to be Ryan Lochtie's towel and be rubbed over him every time he came outta the pool! Oh happy day!

    1. Lyndylou, you are so clever. It never occurred to me to be a towel. You win the gold for creativity.

  10. LOL, fantasy Olympics...hummm, where do I start?
    Definitely something totally different like "Cow Pat Bingo".
    The mind boggles. Or who can stare the longest {without blinking} at all of the very nice men {wink}
