These aren't spirit fingers!

The worst part about not having a full voice is that I can't protest loudly when this sort of thing happens:

Yup. Mike dressed Sarah as a cheerleader today! Oh, I think my heart is palpitating. If he teaches her anything about spirit fingers, I'm fairly certain that the cheery vibes will strike out like a 100 megavolt burst of lightning and kill me.

The only consolation I have is that with the scratch on her nose and the not-so-perky expression on her face she at least looks like a tough cheerleader. (Wait. Is that an oxymoron?). OK. Let the anti-cheerleader bashing hate mail begin.

I just received this email from Mike. Is he trying to kill me?
Subject: Cheerleading
From: "Michael Fife"

Sarah can aspire to such dedication:;

Who is that man and what has he done with MIKE!??!!

He does realize that cheerleaders can't play rugby, right??

Still it is a cute picture, but I can't wait till your voice comes back and you can protest loudly for us all!

But she sure is cute.
However, both Sarah and Mike
look out of their comfort zone.
Don't let them get to comfortable.
John and I had so much fun poking
at the injured cheerleader.
Really, Sarah is far to bright and independant to entertain the
cheerleader thing. Get the
kid some hiking boots and sign
her up for rugby. Maybe some
skis and running shoes too.
The scratch on the nose? What's that?

i can TOTALLY believe that mike dressed sarah up as a cheerleader! you see, i knew mike when he was a kid. and my father, his uncle jim, was very cruel. i think that i was sworn to secrecy about the things that we did to mike as a kid and i love him too much to reveal them here. BUT you may call me at home and i will gladly reveal some of them. anyway, james likes to carry a little "bag" around and sweep the floor. his alabama born and bred father is not very happy about it. hmmm-maybe i should get a little male cheerleader outfit. do they make them for auburn? love, carrie

I just read the injured cheerleader story and now I am scared.

How do you convince someone that 'their job is to cheer' even with a SPINAL FRACTURE!

I am a little horrified today.

N - I will protest and do my best to see that this atrocity doesn't happen again.
About the injured cheerleader, you must see the video of the interview with her. It's like watching a Stepford Cheerleader. Unreal:
Then, go down to the SPORTS section.

The girl is clearly a lunatic.

REJ - I've got the hiking boots, skis, biking, running and soccer shoes all lined up. My plan is to keep her too busy to even entertain the cheerleader thing.
I'm not sure where she got the scratch on her nose. She takes so many wipe outs and runs into so many doors and walls everyday that it's hard to keep track.

Carrie - Oh, I must know more about Mike's childhood!
I think it's fine that James has a Man Purse and likes to sweep, but please don't put him in a cheerleader outfit. That could be consider cruel and unusual punishment.
