Warmup Wednesday – June 24th

For this weeks Warmup Wednesday we had to incorporate a lifelong goal that wasn’t the Olympics into a story about the following prompt:

Down to Earth

Keep your feet on the ground, that’s what people say. I wish I could. The doctors don’t know what to make of it, they’ve never seen anything quite like it. They call it blimp foot. I’d kick them if they were taller.

For a while I floated around upside down, but the headaches got to me. Eventually I came up with this contraption. If I build up enough momentum I can swing myself around. For a few seconds I’m the right way up, it’s glorious.

I’d get a gold medal out of it, if only I could stick the landing!
