Plink Post - A Feature!

Congratulations! You're going to be featured in the next issue of Sports Illustrated. How does your bio read?

Name: Gingerly Tiptoeing-Through (but also of the Stumble persuasion)

Sex: More often in the summertime

Date of Birth: It happened one Fall morning, and each day she's trying to be worthy of it.

Of Note:
* Writing: Won a writing contest - Barbara Bush's Just Say No To Drugs Essay Contest - in 7th grade. She made up her sob story and was rewarded for it. This was the start of many embellishments.

* Sports: See above and below

* Fitness: Was a badass once upon a time, but has gone the au-naturale route since baby B'Hat was born nine months ago. (Au-naturale meaning mostly sitting somewhere nice, sipping coffee and/or Merlot, and on the best days, both at the same time.)

* Glamor: Buying too much racy-lacy lingerie and too many pairs of red shoes. This might be considered a new glorious breed of Sass-itude or it is a completely mad insecurity. Either way, each day she can die comfortably knowing that the ME will most certainly be impressed, no matter what happens.

* Occupation: All consuming health hazard, yet sometimes lovely, especially in June.

*Personality: Only from 8:00 am-2:00 pm and then not again until 6:30 pm.

*Other: Glad to have had butt grabbed by a perfect stranger in an Amsterdam bar (story for another day); Is growing a vegetable garden.. in her dreams; Is terrible at walking on the beach (reminder of the horrible hammock incident of 2003 - again, story for another day); Birds sing specifically to her, when she is still enough.. which is rarely.

***Happy St. Patrick's Day! I hope you all have good craic today!!

Obviously, winning Babs' Just Say No to Drugs contest was the start to a career in writing. I adored this post.

And hats off to your talent to sip coffee and Merlot at the same time. I don't think I know anyone who can do that.
