Re: Gym-no-phobia


Gym-no-phobia: The fear of having to climb that stu-pid rope in gym class that isn't a real gymnastics event anyway. I mean, what sadist decided that it was a measure of physical fitness to have to climb a rope that had no footholds, that scraped your hands and your inner thighs raw --- not to mention what it did to your belly button when your shirt snagged on the fibers. And did they have to use the cheapest, coarsest, roughest rope in the known universe?
*ahem* Not that I have issues or anything.

Six colors on Cranberry: white, sandy, blue, black, orange, yellow.

As always, comments and votes are deeply appreciated.

I've always hated that rope too, so this is an excellent t-shirt for it.

Ha-ha, you did it! Nice!
My biggest problem with the rope was that I squeezed so hard with my thighs that within a couple of feet, I felt like I had to pee. Quite the Kegel workout.

Yeah, I got mine done. Where's yours? :-D
I'm afraid of heights, which is why I could never do the rope, which is why I had bad grades in the gymnastics section of gym class. If it weren't for that ... spooktacular ... rope, I could have been one of those short over-muscled men.

Ah, just no time. I even had a second idea I wanted to toy with, but work is just insane this week. I get home so wound up and frazzled, I just want to veg out.

Record it. Either write it down somewhere or do a rough sketch. It may work for some theme in the future. I had a great idea for a Halloween T, but by the time Hallowoot came around I could not remember what it was.
(And I still have a list of things that start with every letter of the alphabet, even though I haven't used it in the last two alphabet derbies.)

Good advice. I do have the dodgeball sketch on photobucket. Maybe I'll get time to sketch out the other one and save it there, too. Just in case. Thanks!
