I hate to be posting only videos, but since I don't have anything better to write, plus, we have this new funny video that we made over the weekend, I think I can forgive myself for not writing. Anyway, it's not a bad video. It's about Bruce Lee - and didn't we all madly love him at some point in our lives? Or, if not the man himself, one or some of his movies?
How as a young girl I used to dream of rock-hard knuckles that would crack a walnut in the blink of an eye, and heels that were so hardened that I'd smash bricks with it with a mere impact and not feel a thing, and palms that would crush coconuts with no effort.
I would get up with my brother at the break of dawn and run out to find some roadside gravel where we could jump barefoot on. My brother assured me that that was the only path to my dreams. Then kneel and pound the gravel with open fists, so hard that sometimes I'd feel tears welling up. But I was on my way to becoming a great fighter, a true warrior, and real warriors don't cry.
And gravel was the answer to everything. Jump, jump, pound, pound - I was so determined! If that girl could see into the future and see me now - she'd be so disgusted with how I now strive to keep my my heels and my hands soft. All her efforts and all those tears gone to waste. I miss those days - doing Kung Fu with my brother while the world slept. Good times.
Anyway, here's our video. Watch - it's pretty fun. You might get a smile or two out of it.
