Overheard on the phone... (aka- how delusional one becomes while watching the Olympics)

While watching men's springboard diving....

Me: These guys are cut out of flippin' marble.

Jenn: mmmhmm

Me: Seriously, they are amazing.

Jenn: I know.

Me: I could do that.

Jenn: Ok, now you're just lying.

Me: No really, I could do that.

Jenn: Idiot, you are afraid of heights!

Me (snarkily): Minor technicality.

I'm quite familiar with the delusion your friend suffers from... in fact, I suffer from it as well, and have the same issue everytime I watch any sort of sporting event. I WAS Katarina Witt back in the 1988 Winter Olympics... I definitely WAS Nadia Comaneci back in 1976 in Montreal... and, of course, I WAS Florence Griffith Joyner in 1988 in Seoul.

This time around, I think I'm going to become Shawn Johnson. Yeah, I'll be her. Delusional living is fun.

Yes, I am QUITE an accomplished athlete in any sport I set my mind to. :-)

I'm afraid of diving boards...watching my friend crack her head on the board in high school pretty much cemented my fear.

But I do the same thing..usually with ice skating. I "glide" around the house for days after watching ice skating..
