Yoga classes are paying off

My talented-brother-in-law-who-is-shortly-to-become-famous asked me to be a model for a photo shoot he's working on. He's getting his portfolio ready for when he officially opens for business at the end of the summer.

It's a bird-watching shoot down at Utah Lake at sunset. It's me and this buff marathoner (married) guy, but Ed already shot the marathoner and now it's my turn. They'll make a composite of different shots so it looks like we're together, all outdoorsy and REI-clad. I'm in shorts, but I'm told they'll do something about my fishbelly-white legs.

I had to balance on these rocks by the water with binoculars to my eyes and turn slowly to scan the horizon while Ed shot. I even got a compliment. "I mean, for someone who can't throw a softball, you have way better coordination at this than I thought you would."

So there you go. I may not be able to throw a softball but I am the best at not falling over. Will probably jinx this tonight when we have to go back down and take a few more.

Also, to all the apparently hundreds and hundreds of people who litter down at Utah Lake, I say shame on you. Shame and dishonor upon you and your houses forever. I mean, I'd expect this from the Corona-drinkers, but the water-bottle people? Seriously!!! What is even wrong with you?? You think you're going to like going down to the lake quite so much when you have to wade through trash?I think a good idea for punishing litterers would be to make them spend about about 50 hours picking up litter.

With their teeth.

How about we make them wade through the trash for 50 hours. They can sit in their filth.

A few weeks ago I was driving up the long street to my neighborhood when the car in front of me launched a fountain drink container out the window. My jaw dropped. I wanted to speed up, roll down my window, and shake my finger in shame (and of course run them off the road). I serioualy hate it when people litter. How trashy (no pun intended).

What do you have against Corona-drinkers? I'd be willing to bet that the vast majority of non-Mormon environmentalists drink beer of some kind, and then manage not to throw the bottle on the beach.

My mother was killed by a Corona drinker.

I could make a potential grudging exception for someone who was possibly intoxicated and not really thinking about littering. But for a stone-cold-sober health-conscious bottled-water drinker there is no excuse.

Aha! I understand.

I make no such exception for drunk people.

Excuse me? A birdwatching shoot and Ed didn't ask me to model? I could do a more convincing birdwatcher than you because I actually care about which bird is which! I'm so insulted and hurt.

I'm no longer speaking with the McCulloch family. I might even go back to misspelling their name. Curse them!
