T is for Twirl

There are probably as many different ways to twirl as there are ways to move. Spin on one foot with your arms above your head like a ballerina. Spread your arms out wide and turn on both feet. Find a partner and lock arms. The possibilities are endless. I caution you. Twirling can result in dizziness, falling down, and giggling.

It is hard to be serious when you are in rotation. You can probably forget about disciplining when you are struggling to stay upright. Today, my daughter decided to try to run away once I got her poopy diaper off her. (She's 3 and almost a half....don't ask...) She plays this game a lot, but today was different because I managed to get one hand on her wrist before she got out of reach. She is small, but she is strong. So with her in one hand and wipes in the other, she started running in circles (while giggling hysterically), spinning me like a top while I tried to remain in control of the situation. There was no way I was going to let go because I figured if I held on, I could contain the poop. So around and around I went, hollering "stop" ineffectively. I got dizzier and dizzier, until finally, the giggles just started; and the harder I tried to convince myself and my child that this was not funny, the more the giggles took hold.

You might imagine that this did not end well. It usually doesn't when there are kids and poop and twirling involved. Let's just say, miraculously, nobody got hurt. But this is exactly how I came to think of my "T" post for the challenge.

  4. You just helped me invent a new dance called The Drunken Twirl. It'll be a bar dance and it goes like this. You spin around on the dance floor (next to a nearby bar or tray of alcohol) until you become loopy dizzy, immediately stop, then take a shot of alcohol of your choice, straight. Beats poop! lol
