G is for Gymnastics

I'm not really into sports but if I had to be an athlete then I'd want to be a gymnast. It just looks so beautiful and elegant!

Alas, this dream will remain just that. A dream. For you have to start at a really young age in order to be that flexible and unfortunately my days of touching my toes to my forehead are long gone. Also, since doing an eight week course of gymnastics every year at school, it became quite evident that I do not possess the elegance or the skill to be a gymnast.

I'm far too heavy and don't have the upper or lower body strength to fling myself around like they can. Plus jumping over the buck was way out of my capabilities...
