Funny how, at that age, you seemed to have a sense for syntax ... Which is to say, they're all short, and read like punchlines, even though it's probably just because of limited writing abilities.

Still trying to figure out what "wizzie" is. I found it vaguely disturbing, coming right after the six kids in one bed paragraph ... :wink:

Oh ... And might I venture a guess that you quit gymnastics, eventually?

Haha, yeah I guess that part with the bed could be taken the wrong way... that's part of the fun. Wizzie was my sister's mouse, lol.

I had to quit gymnastics when I was 16 because the bones in my elbow were shredding away... there's so much wrong with the institution of gymnastics I could write a whole book about it, and probably should.
