Yellow Beltitis

Good morning! Well, in the twerplets plot to take over the Dungan household they have finally taken another step up the ladder. We now have 2 very official yellow belts in Tae Kwon Do. Oh sure, this is great news for them. This is such a great accomplishment. (please note some sarcasm that does not translate into written form) They are well on their way to becoming lethal weapons. Sure, it is great exercise. It increases concentration and it is a great character building exercise. But, did anyone think of Lynley and I? Now that I am starting to think about it maybe this was not such a good idea. We are fueling their eventual takeover.

Yes, it is a time for a change of strategy. Mom and Dad can't be left out in the cold with their flabby bodies and cloudy minds. Tonight, Lynley and I will be attending the family class for the first time. No, for a change we will not be part of the peanut gallery. We will be participants. Watch out kids. We don't give up that easily.

While I don't expect Lynley and I to necessarily become black belts we figured that this would be an excellent way for us to participate. Additionally, both Lynley and I could use the exercise. So, yes, tonight Mom and Dad start on their Tae Kwon Do journey of mastery as white belts. It won't be long before we are able to retake physical control.

Parents can have Tae Kwon Do purpose as well.
