I followed a link off my friend Tim’s blog just now to an online test that claims be able to estimate the date of your death by the answers you give to a few questions. Apparently I’m going to die on Christmas Day in 2059, and there’s a 33% chance it’ll be from cancer. The spooky thing about that is that many of my family members who have passed on died in December, and several were actually from cancer. Odd.
But that’s not what I’m writing about (although I want to know all your results in the Peanut Gallery). I’m writing because part of the test asked how many pushups I could do without stopping.
I’m such a wimp. Okay, so at number fifteen Henson ran under me and made me laugh, but I didn’t have it in me to go for sixteen, so I quit right then. Seriously, my arms still hurt. I have no upper-body strength whatsoever.
I want you all, right now, to get down on the floor and try this. Don’t do any girl pushups either. (Unless you’re a girl.) You’ve gotta start with straight arms, and feel the floor with the tip of your nose before you come back up. I don’t care if you’re in a library or whatever. Just do it. No one will stop you, because you won’t last that long. Plus, anyone who does pushups in public is probably too scary to approach. So do it! Let’s see how y’all do.
