Corvette Bruises – Seriously?!
The Baranyi Clan had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, Yosaku, the other night with my dad, Ben and step-mom, Paula. I called shotgun to ride with my dad in his Vette. I am used to climbing up into our S.U.V. with the help of running boards and a strong grip with my left hand. I had forgotten what it was like to fold myself up into a sports car that was a mere 5 inches or so above the ground. While trying to enter this way-cool vehicle I managed to bruise my my left shoulder and my right butt cheek.
It was so embarrassing! Apparently, the very specific muscles used to lower one into a sexy car have completely atrophied. I USED TO BE A GIRL WHO COULD GRACEFULLY GET INTO A TRANS AM, (it was blue…Mike from Boston) OR PORSCHE!, (it was silver…cute lifeguard from Old Orchard Beach), OR MY DAD’S CORVETTE! And yes, I meant to yell!
Is there something that your aging body now has a difficult time doing? Make me feel better and share with me on our Facebook Fan Page #oldbody, or tweet us.
My upper body is strong from hauling groceries and kids though,
