It has been a very indulging weekend for me. All I’ve done is sit back and relax and indulge in a good whole day of watching the good old Olympics. I mean I love sports…on TV. I DO love exercising. I don’t mind doing sit ups, squats or dancing. Even though push ups freak me out. Not because I can’t do them, but because I can’t help thinking that if I try to, my hands will come loose at the shoulder sockets. Not a happy thought. Nevertheless yes, I love exercising. But put me in a real sporting activity and you will know the answer to the greatest question that has puzzled men for decades now…why does Victoria Beckham never smile?
Just saying I’m as puzzled as to why I cannot do a slam dunk. Or synchronized swimming. I blame my legs personally. These same legs that failed me when I mustered up all my strength and kicked a penalty and the ball simply rolled a few feet away while the undaunted goalie just stood and watched the ball roll to a sorry stop during my school interhouse games.
Whate’er, whate’er…I also indulged in two tubs of ice cream (may they never come back to haunt me in the form of calories) and a very interesting programme about the history of the colour gold. Which was a not a message at all to all the athletes currently participating at the Olympics. No pressure at all. We do not care about gold or any medals. Just have fun and frolic about and come back empty-handed.
Well, there has been a lot of talk about gold on TV and all social media sites lately. Like I said, no pressure. It is very normal for journalists and media people to be obsessed with gold towards the end of July and early August.
Hence my gold-inspired outfit of the day.
