As I was thinking back on 2012, I thought about some things I managed to avoid that I take some pride in. Those things are:
1. I never said YOLO (writing it here doesn't count).
2. I never saw the Gangnam style video. I'm only vaguely aware of who "Psy" is. I know he wears Hammer pants. I think he's from South Korea. I've seen pictures where it looks like he dances like he's riding a horse.
|I don't get it.|
When the song came out, I heard it sometimes on the radio and I thought he was saying, "Open condom style." I was like, "wow. Open condom style? What even is that?!" Then when I heard people talking about Gangnam style, I eventually figured out it was the same thing as that Open Condom Style song I hated. At that point I was 100% annoyed with the whole thing, and when I heard there was a video, and that he was on some awards show doing his dance, I was just like, "pass."
Now I hear that it's one of the most viewed youtube videos ever? I don't get it nor do I want to.
In other Wednesday Thoughts, I went to a trampoline gym with some friends last night. I have some other friends who go to these all the time, but they're all in their early 20's. I'm not.
Here's a fact about me: I've never done either a back flip or a front flip. So I tried to teach myself a front flip yesterday - - with very little success. But I'll keep trying. At my age it's important to know how to do a front flip. You'll understand when you're older.

And lastly, in Wednesday Thoughts, I'm going to do a post on Friday where I answer reader (ahem - you) questions. If you don't want to put your Q's in the comments, you can email them to me: downie.elizabeth (at) gmail.com. What are some things you would like to know about me? I will try to be 100.5% honest. YOLO, am I right?
