News Flash! News Flash!

I have a secret addiction.

I'm only allowed to indulge when H is gone. And it's Monday.

Basically, it only happens once a month or so.

Want to know what it is?

Dancing with the Stars

However, that's not the news flash. Did anyone of you watch it tonight? I was all snuggled in bed (at 8:15 to be truthful) with my glass of water, lights off, dog near my feet, computer turned off. Then I heard the words CLUB FEET. Did any of you hear those words???

Kristi Yamaguchi was born with club feet. DID YOU HEAR ME??? The Olympic gold medalist was born with NOT ONE, BUT TWO club feet.

For those of you who have been faithful readers for a while, you might remember some time ago, I posted about M's club foot. M was only born with one club foot. Kristi was born with both of her feet clubbed. Dancing with the Stars showed pictures of her in her casts when she was a little baby.

Friends, do you see the implication here? If Kristi Yamaguchi was born with two club feet and later became a gold medal Olympic winner, children with club feet can do ANYTHING. Kristi is famous because of the way she uses her FEET.

Wow. WOW. SUPER WOW!
