you know you're a gymnast when...
you know you're a gymnast when: -sidewalk curbs turn into balance beams (and you don't think it's babyish to play on them!) -you can beat the guys at arm wrestling and on pull-ups -door frames are like pull-up bars -when you're at the beach you have to do a cartwheel or handstand or handsprings or walk on your hands or some gymnastics skill! -you still wear scrunchies and colorful hair clips!! and love them! add yours too!

-when you hear froggy or pancake you don't think of the green amphibian or the breakfast food, but of stretches -hollow isn't 'empty', it's the position you hold in handstand -giants isn't really tall people or the baseball team, but is going around the bar over + over again -when you hear I'm going to bars you don't think of the 21 and over place but the chalky section of they gym where you can play like a monkey! -you're not embarrassed to play on the monkey bars or swing and jump from the swings even when you're in your teens or older -you're not that surprised by the gym smell! (why don't they design gyms with lots + lpts of windows - that open!! - that will be a popular gym!) -you think the splits are easy -you don't gasp when someone does the splits - like in "Dancing with the Stars" !

-you do pirouettes on the kitchen tile -when waiting in line you do toe rises without thining about it -school PE conditioning is like warm-up -your clothes are like a chalkboard -the boys don't want to arm wrestle you -when you're excited you do a back flip -kip isn't just a boy's name -you scrape off extra skin from your hands -water spray bottles aren't just for your hair -a lot of your school essays are about gymnastics -hair scrunchies are in style -wearing colorful clips is cool not babyish (Produnova's colorful and neon-like leotards and clips were awesome!!)

Your pullovers aren't fleece or cableknit It isn't rude to yell "Stick It" An aerial isn't a mermaid. You don't put syrup on your pancakes. Even little kids go to bars. You understand gravity long before physics 101 Your deductions aren't part of your family's tax returns. You don't warm up in an oven and you don't cool down in a refrigerator Giants aren't jolly and green. The bed you jump on is a trampoline Splits have nothing to do with bananas You have bigger muscles than your boyfreind. A flipflop is more than a sandal A wedgie is not a little piece of cheese. You have trouble buying cowboy boots small enough for your feet and big enough for your calves. You are emotionally attached to your grips. Chalk is th efifth food group You don't need glue to stick it.
