why my back hurts

Last night I felt as if I were in college again. Only this time, my crazy roommates were my two boys. It was way past their bed time and we were just finishing up baths. They had just slipped into their p.j.s and were showing off their dance moves. Landon has apparently learned a "hippo" dance from school which involves him swishing his hips around and then quickly poking out his bootie for the grand finale. Then Ashton was showing us his moves, which words can not describe. Seizure is the only word that comes close. That's when it got interesting.

Ashton lye flat on the floor and then started wiggling around trying to do "the worm". Then Landon tried. I was laughing so hard, I soon found myself on the floor. I flipped and flailed the way no real worm does (unless it got stepped on). I tried and tried and tried. I finally decided that my back was just not flexible enough, but did that stop me...no. I kept trying until I hurt my knee. Shawn just watched shaking his head. Then I challenged him. A smirk found it's way to his mouth and he hit the floor and showed us his best worm moves too. I've decided that the Gray's are not meant to do the worm.

It took me a couple of hours to figure out why my back was hurting this morning!!

The funny thing with this story...I can see it. I can just picture the whole Gray family laughing and worming! (Attempted worm), but wait where is Maggie? We should have a "worm off" Wednesday nite.

Worm off? I think that needs to be left for the young. I would need a body brace I think. But it might be pretty funny to see Harold, Jeff or Logan who is far too serious doing the worm.
