When Gymnasts are VERBS
This was too funny to pass up. THE COUCH GYMNAST from over in England had this in her blog. I just had to share it.
Before we get started, a quick grammar reminder for all you young ‘uns. A noun is a person, place or thing. A verb is a ‘doing word’, an action of sorts. This means Cheng Fei is a noun. When she ‘vaults’, that is a verb, because it is something she did- an action she performed. In this particular game, turning a player into a verb involves using their character attributes to describe the way an action is performed.
I thought this might be a bit of fun in the gymnastics world! Here are some of my gymnast-turned-verbs;
To Memmel something: as in, “Wow, I didn’t expect her to Memmel!” To make a dramatic re-entrance at just the right time and impress the heck out of everyone, only to disappear again.
To Khorkina: as in “I couldn’t do anything! I was helpless! She totally Khorkina-ed me!”. To use excessive charm whilst annihilating your opponents.
To Bross it- as in; “I never thought she’s hold on, but she managed to Bross it until the end!” To fight tooth and nail, no matter how hard or how ridiculous to get the job done.
