Self esteem

I have been enjoying watching the Olympics (and, for the record, I think Gabby's my favorite of this year's athletes and...Ryan's a looker--phew!), but of course it makes me feel bad about myself, reminding me of all the things I cannot do and all the world records that I will never break.

But. I have been enjoying it. As this woman has been.

Kids Week on Jeopardy! on the other hand, makes me feel quite good about myself. When I got the answer right for what those things in croquet are called*, I did a little elbow pull down**.

**What do you call that, when you congratulate yourself and make a fist, pulling your elbow in toward you?? Anyway, I did one of those.


  1. "Alex, I'll take odd congratulatory gestures for $100"
    Alex: "Making a fist, pulling your elbow in toward you"
    *Buzz* "I know, I know!"
    "What is a fist pump?"

    1. Haha.

      It wasn't a fist pump, though...It makes me think of Napoleon Dynamite:

      Whatever Kip does in that scene.
