I hate that song. But the 5 come from here.
- How confidently could you turn a cartwheel right now?
I’m pushing 50, but I can turn a cartwheel pretty confidently. It’s not as pretty as it once was, but if someone came up to me and said she’d give me twenty bucks if I could turn a decent cartwheel then and there, I’d get those two sawbucks.
- How (physically) flexible are you?
I used to pride myself on being especially flexible, but those days are gone. I’m hoping to get it back, as well as some of my balance. Last year, when I was out walking late every night, I could feel my balance getting better when I walked on low walls. I’m moderately alarmed that I can’t make my body bend the way I used to.
- How are your Frisbee-throwing skills?
I don’t understand. I just can’t fling a Frisbee. I’ve seen people instruct others on doing it, and beyond just a quick, straight laser shot, I can’t throw a pretty Frisbee. I want to throw those long, floaty beauties that travel fifty yards and then drop straight down. But I suck.
- Which carnival game do you have the best shot at winning?
I do pretty well at the water gun games; used to win those all the time. I think I’d be pretty good at those shoot-out-the-black-dot games too, but I’ve never tried them.
- How good are you at toss-the-paper-in-the-wastebasket?
Probably about average, but I have more fun with it than most people. I set up trick shots, and if others are around, I call my shot aloud: “Off the wall, off the rim of the wastebasket, and into the can!” My students sometimes got a kick out of it. They sometimes got annoyed. So it was perfect for my classroom!
