This blog is not for the light-hearted or easily offended. If either one of those descriptions applies to you, i would suggest you start drinking before you read this blog. A sense of humor is suggested. If you don't have one that sucks for you … find one and get a life!
I think my musical tastes are regressing. When my parents were my age (53) they listened to classical music but today on the way to workout I was jamming to Bruno Mars and on the way home I found myself listening to Rihanna. Pretty soon I guess I’ll be into this band “One Direction” whose music I’ve actually never listened to as I don’t have any teenage girls around my house thank god.
However, that wasn’t even the point of this post; that is, if my posts ever have points. So today in was in Pilates (as per usual) and we were on the floor doing mat work when Amanda, my instructor, said the following:
Amanda: stay back on your sacrum
Me: my sacrum?
Me: you always talk about this “so-called sacrum.” Where exactly is such a thing found?
Amanda: (laughing) it’s the triangular bone above your butt
Me: I thought perhaps it was something mystical … like a leprechaun
Amanda: or a unicorn?
Amanda: when I was younger I thought somehow that unicorns drank Perrier water so I would put it out in a bowl to try and catch unicorns
Me: hmmmm…I hate Perrier water. Why Perrier?
Amanda: I don’t know…that’s what I thought
Me: I wonder how a unicorn would drink out of a bowl
Amanda: What do you mean?
So I stood up and attempted to bend over and drink with a large horn on my head.
Me: wouldn’t the horn hit the ground?
Amanda: I don’t think so. I think it would be close though.
So there I am, standing up and having a pretend unicorn horn on my head, and then bending down to see if I can actually drink water.
Me: perhaps it would work if the horn wasn’t too long and it was perpendicular to the nose
Amanda: I never got to try it. I never caught a unicorn
And so that’s what it’s like working out with me. We looked at each other and realized that we actually doing NO PILATES at all but were trying to figure out how unicorns drink Perrier.
I still don’t know so if you’ve got an answer let me know. Meanwhile, now you know where the sacrum is. That magical unicorn spot above your tailbone.
Don’t say I never taught you anything.
