Whip It! Whip it Good!

"Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word."  Psalm 119:37

Okay, so Summer break is upon us and the kids and I have been busy and then there were the terrible tornadoes, and I've been slightly depressed since Sunday after seeing the wreckage on TV, and I haven't felt like writing anything... 

Anyone even notice?

Anyway, let me start off by saying that when the hub came home with a BULLWHIP from a garage sale for our 8YO, I didn't think it was an age appropriate gift. 

My Nanna used to scare me into not playing with such things by saying I'd "whip my eye out!"  I used to picture my eyeball actually on the end of the whip, dangling precariously. 

So far no eye whipping has happened, although every time I try it, I seem to get my arm.  Probably from a lack of practice as a child! 

But, I must say, that if you're in the market for silly kid faces, which we are here due to slight mother depression, just hand your kid a bullwhip and let the good times roll. 

Cue your best Devo impersonation...

Crack that whip!

When a problem comes along, you must whip it. 

Step on a crack, break your momma's back.

Now whip it.

Whip it good!

Go forward.  Move ahead.  It's not too late to whip it.  Whip it good.* 

*My apologies to Devo. 

Apparently bullwhipping is a full body workout if you do it right.  I'd like to be the first to predict it as the next exercise craze.  I'm thinking you add a few Zumba moves, and a couple of whip cracks, some red Lego looking hats, and you've got yourself a show right there!

Just be careful and don't whip your eye out.
