"Absolutely!" Sonya giggles with delight. "I am tall, lean, flat-chested...and I have the calves of a marble carved Greek goddess! This is it! My calling in life is to be a gymnast!!!"
JUMP. check. (You've GOT to see my dismount...perfection!)
FLIP. (oh ya!) check.
SWING. check (feel free to notice my perfectly pointed toes...a thing of beauty if I do say so myself).
CONFESSION: I am a FAKE! It's true. My mom was too kind to post my humiliation...I can't skip!!!!! There, I said it! (head bows in shame). Like generations before me (my daddy suffered from the same handicap- he was held back in kindergarden because of it), I have an inability to skip, or walk rhythmically in any way. Coach Erin worked with me individually for 10 minutes; she even picked me up and moved my legs...I just couldn't get it.
Maybe I should try something else....Stay tuned....
