This just in...I'm not 12 anymore.

Dude, I have been going around promising cartwheels to people for making me happy for a long time now and no one has actually followed up on that. Thank god.

So uh...I tried, but really, it's pretty clear I haven't done a cartwheel in like 18 years. It's kind of hard on the wrists. And also, I cannot for the life of me get my legs to cooperate in the staying straight department.

So here's take 1:

And take 2:

And finally the best I did on video:

And shortly after this, I did what Clinton called my very best one, and of course he was not recording.

I did order the cake, I'm picking it up at lunch, so there will be pictures and a virtual piece of cake for you after lunch.

Man, I'm impressed. I couldn't do a cartwheel even when I WAS 12. This is why I took dance and not gymnastics. I blame the gangliness.

I expect cake. You cannot deny a pregnant lady cake and get away with it.
