The Workout

Of my family, I'll say that my sister has probably got the quickest wit, The Perfect One has all the looks, youngest brother R has mechanical abilities like you wouldn't believe, and I... well, I'm the oldest, and would like to think that I'm the strainer that got out all of the impurities for the rest of them. Anyway, this post is about my sis, and my nephews' newfound "toy." She thought quick, but I wonder how deep the scars may be...

My bro-in-law's family has a pretty big Christmas. They also do a "White Elephant" style gift giving. The Knuckle Dragger got a gag gift to bring. It was a little electronic device that helped to determine certain positions. I tried to find it online so that I could link it, but I don't have all the info I need. I even checked on Spencer's (where they got it from) website, but it isn't under any category... not that I found, anyway. The thing suggested positions of the Karma Sutra... and my nephews discovered it. The eldest being 7.

They asked my sis about it, and she quickly told them that it was to help people exercise. This was based on the figures found on the device. One white, one red. Meanwhile, they keep playing with it. It lands on one position with one figure bent over at the waist, the other "standing" behind. They asked her about it, and she responded that the figure was doing toe touches. When asked why the other was behind them, she explained that sometimes people need help when doing toe touches, so that they don't fall over on the floor.

Next they asked about one sitting on another figure's "stomach." She explained that it was a different way of helping someone do situps, whereupon my youngest nephew suggested that she do some of these exercises with him. She was crying, she was laughing so hard.

They did not get rid of the thing at the party... in the end, my sis ended up bringing it back, much to the boys' delight. They found it right away, and started playing with it again. The Knuckle Dragger overheard them playing... "You be the white one, and I'll be the red one." Looking into the other room, he saw one on all fours, with the other kneeling behind him, extending the leg of the one on the floor up into the air. Both were remarking about how tough these exercises were. Thank Gott that they didn't have a camera handy...

As it is, methinks someone's going to be a little suprised in a few years...

OMG!! Hahhahahaha! She was quick with the answers for sure! Lack of photographic evidence is probably a really good thing......

Ha,ha,ha!!! YOU hope no damage is done, so do I!!! I never laughed so hard in my life! They are so innocent, and I felt so bad they were trying to "exercise"! Needless to say, they WILL NOT be getting ahold of that again! (I hope...) :)

T1G's little sis

I'm with Harvey- make sure you save this one for their wedding day toasts or something!

OMG... Laughing SO HARD!

(which also means I had to show this around the office to explain my laughter)

LMAO!!! I just hope I can be as quick with my boys as they get older. That is a story for the generations. I am still laughing as I write this post.
