C'mon Now Y'all...

I'm blushing.

To clarify, since several people asked... It was not during any sort of attempt at a strange Kama Sutra pose... It was just one of those 'see if you can do it' sort of things when I was about 9 or 10.

I was long-legged, skinny, flat chested and limber and I'm sure one of my sibs probably issued the challenge to see if I could put both feet behind my head, because I showed them I could put one foot behind my head. It was probably one of those snide comments like, "So what... But can you get both of 'em up there?" Naturally, I had to do it just so I could say, "Naner, naner, poo, poo!" at them because I could do it.

I will say, since we're keeping it real, that when I got older there were times when I dang sure could've put them behind my head if I'd thought about it, since they were back to my shoulders anyhow...

I've spent quite a bit of time trying to do this. Did I say I pulled my back out? LOL

Just kidding, although back in the ballet days, age 5, could do it!

ha, ha....I've always been lucky to put one foot in front of the other, never mind anywhere else.

I could put my feet behind my head. A LONG TIME AGO!
I'll not elaborate on that last paragraph. We'll just leave it up to the imagination. Hahahahah

Honey, don't worry about it...LOL! I've been there and done that, but unfortunately, it never entered my mind to try it while I was married. ;-)
