Here’s a personal story for a change.
Throughout my childhood, my Uncle Pat would visit us from New York and do donkey kicks with us in the living room. Whether or not he was trying to trick us, or he actually believes it himself, Uncle Pat told us, every time, “You know, I invented the donkey kick.”
He convinced my sisters and I, and in our naivete and we relayed the exciting news to our Phys Ed. teacher in elementary school. Not once did we do this, but every single year when it was gymnastics time in P.E. class. My sisters and I are each two years apart, and being three of us, Mrs. C heard that Uncle Pat invented the donkey kick for about ten years. Maintaining a great attitude, she never crushed our dreams, by teling us that he did not in fact invent the donkey kick.
When I saw this picture on www.postsecret.blogspot.com I immediately thought of Uncle Pat. I posted the picture to his wife, Aunt Kim’s wall, to which she replied that he was eager to teach their new granddaughter the donkey kick. While she’s not yet a year old, and obviously too young to donkey kick, she’ll be great at it for sure. It runs in the family.
