Thank you, Sir Isaac. It’s a 6.

Thursday and Six Sentence Story time! Typically, I don’t write an intro, just kinda get right to it as they say but at this moment, I feel as if a little explanation of my 6 might be helpful? Naa-ah. I laugh at the fact I’m even suggesting that. Writing is art. Art is open to interpretation and honestly, isn’t that part of the fun?


Unprecedented push-back slammed hard, the metal of her resistance sustaining yet another round of damage, a figurative pock mark, another crease.

She’d taxed her body, pushed it’s physical limits, savored the feeling of the adrenaline, aphrodisiac to all which ailed her. Fuel + oxygen + spark = combustion, experienced on a level not seen in recent times. Feeling invigorated and strong, energetic and youthful, body memory flooded, nostalgic, (it was) a lover’s embrace.

It is (now) all out war, a contest of will vs routine, both physical and metaphysical, a challenge to the 3 laws of motion. And the question remains:  F = ma or F = mv?

      Only because I’m so out of shape, lol. Oh, yeah. Finished my federal last week (early for me!) but still have to file state.

      Thank you. The story was reaction to what happened the following evening/morning after that. Once having figured it for simply being a popular platitude, I find myself identifying with the saying “1 step forward and 2 steps back”. And it appears the answer to that, is to quickly take 5 steps forward 🙂

    A few years ago, my youngest son convinced me to try P90X with him. One session was enough for me. I could hardly walk the next day! I can relate to that bumper car photo!

      Oh, my gosh Kristi! I just watched a P90X video (never heard of it). I bet you couldn’t, lol That is intense.

    That photo took me back to childhood. I don’t remember experiencing bumper cars until I had kids of my own. I think it took having a son and seeing the excitement and joy of a little boy wanting to slam into other cars was what I needed to think, Hey, this might be fun after all. But even then, one better not have any back problems before being slammed into by a bumper car.

    What a great workout of a SSS!

      That sounds awesome. I bet he was thrilled to death to get into those cars, lol. Totally, I bet in the early, early days they really gave you a jolt!

      Thank, Pat!

    I know nothing about physics but I know when I’m in a bumper car to put my foot all the way down on the pedal and don’t let up until… boom! An interesting six though from the perspective of the car rather than from the driver.

      I’m with you. No holding back, right?! 😀
      Thanks. It’s why writing is so much fun!

    plus (to followup on Michael and Paul’s comments) there is a certain effect from those of us hailing from Y Chromia… that says, ‘ more is more
    Fun Six

    Especially when exercising, it’s best to be the bumper rather than the bumpee. 🙂

    This read like a poem that recounts those at once taxing experiences of life and yet…it’s so fun and invigorating. And then…you have the F=ma or F=mv. Brilliant. For bumper cars? It’s all about acceleration in a teeeeeny tiny space. BUMP!
