She's Back For the Olympics

Cathy-on-a-Stick's been hanging out at my other blog for quite awhile because she's been doing writerly things. But today, she got all up into the Olympics, claiming to be a world class gymnast. So she deserved a trip back to her own blog.

The only part of the floor "exercise" I can show.

1. The floor exercise. (Note: If you want a stick to do a floor exercise, don't put it on a wooden floor. She fell for that floor in a BIG way--and never quite got around to the gymnastics.)

 I told C-o-a-S that this box was a vault. She totally bought it.

2. The vault. (Cathy-on-a-Stick was seriously hampered by her inability to run. But kudos for trying.)

I am not gonna lie. She was kinda flirting with the balance beam, too.

3. The balance beam. (Yeah, she never actually moved across the balance beam. But since the beam was the handrail of the deck, two stories above the ground, I sort of don't blame her.)

4. The uneven bars. (Okay, Cathy-on-a-Stick took OFF on the bars. I had to have TWO pictures, just to show the awesomeness. But I think a lizard creeping up behind her may have had something to do with the jump.)

So, obviously, I had to give her a Gold Medal. (We both got a little choked up during the anthem.)


  1. I'm sitting her laughing and thinking, "Why am I laughing?" I think this is the same kind of funny as my dad always messing up the punch lines of jokes.

    Tell Cathy on a stick to go plant herself in a flower pot and to stand still like a little sign, and to leave the gymnastics to sally on the slinky.

    Ok that took fifteen minutes and is going to get my comment stuck in the spam folder because it has two links. Can you tell I'm stuck in my novel and I'm not writing this week?

    1. Oh, I can tell, Sally. You can tell I'm doing the same?

      (The slinky thing? Very disturbing, yet oddly fascinating.)

  2. I would jump, too, if a lizard was creeping up behind me! :)

    Too funny!

  3. Cathy and photographer should get medals!
