This week I started to feel my age

On Monday I took a tumble when I was running. No one was around me, not pot holes, no cracked footpath


No one to blame but me

I was busting out a classic Greg sprint (think arms swinging wildly from side to side ala the robot from lost in space, feet slamming on the ground like rhino on the charge coupled with a breathing style that can only be likened to that off a pervert…..) when I took a full tumble

Right in front of a packed café full of out door tables

Right near my old work

I broke my mp3 player cut both knees, bruised both hands and managed to get a bruise on my ass…

It could only happen to me…..

Holy Guacamole!

Dude, you have to keep an eye out for those road sprites. They will trip you up every time. At least no one saw you go down.

I will put together 5 good questions for you and message you back. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

That’s the drama...about 30 people saw me (someone started to help me up- that’s when the embarrassment kicked in and I got up and sprinted off)

Marcy said...

Oooohhhhh dude that stinks. Glad you're OK!

Greg said...

Sorry it has taken me a while to get back to you. I have been busy as the weather is warming up and my coaching duties are picking up before our season opener in less than a month.

Here are your five questions:

1. Do you eat vegemite? What is this stuff made of and what is it normally eaten with? What does it taste like? Explain

2. If you were talking to someone who was going to be visiting OZ for the first time, what would you recommend as the top three things to see? Explain why these make the top three.

3. Ok, this one is really goofball, but when water drains down the sink in OZ, does it make a clockwise or a counter-clockwise vortex? I just always wondered.

4. Craig Alexander or Chris McCormick, who is more bad-ass? Explain. Is Emma Snowsill the Uber tri-babe or does someone else hold that title? Explain.

5. If I encountered a playtapus, a koala, and a kangaroo, which one should I be the most afraid of? Explain.

To Play Along:
1. Leave me a comment saying, "interview me".
2. I will respond by giving you five questions. (I get to pick the questions.)
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview others in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
