An email made its way to my inbox yesterday. This little email pushed me to smile, giggle even, and reminded me that there are people in this world who get it. I mean they just get it.

OH! MY! GOSH! I am so with you. I feel like I should start prepping for the big event now - stashing snacks under the couch, loading up on Kleenex to wipe all of my tears and sweat. And banking sleep. There will be no sleep during the games! Really, I just plan on transforming the living room area into an OLYMPIC cocoon. I'll wrap myself in the heat of competition and stay perfectly still so as not to miss a glorious moment. Gosh, am I taking this too far? It's only the Olympics. NO! The OLYMPICS rule! I think we need to take it even further. Come out and visit. I can make an OLYMPIC cocoon for two.

Ahhh...I just had a little butterfly flip in my belly. Probably about a 9.3 flip - there was a small splash at the entrance.

Hugs to all!

OH MY GOSH! is the cacoon expandable to OLYMPIC size? I get so emotionally involved. How is the training going? Do you have a recovery plan? This is HUGE! REJ

You know - I want to be like that about the Olympics, but I don't even know where to start. Can you guys post some helpful hints?

I want Hankies to watch, so he can develop a love of sports, and become the primo athelete that I never was, thereby fullfilling my own frustrated dreams. (sorry for that terrible sentence.) So far, his favorite sport is coloring.

QT - Olympics, Obama. She likes the big O's.

REJ - You're a genius! Of course, an Olympic sized cocoon. Training, recovery - I have no plan. I'm winging it this time.

Rach - What? Not a primo athlete. This from a woman who played rugby with my husband. The only woman who played rugby with my husband.

I have no tips. Really just flip on the television and let yourself be sucked in. I guess that's my tip. Let your whole body and brain go to jelly. Sad, huh?
