Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!

The Geej likes to get dizzy. Big time.

It started innocently enough with "Ring Around the Rosies." She'd get this enormous grin on her face and start whirling around and screaming "Ashes! Ashes!" And as soon as she'd fall down, she'd get up again and look at me like, "Sing, damnit!" As soon as I'd start, so would she, spinning around until she could no longer stand.

Recently, her focus has shifted to the desk chair. The same chair I'm sitting in right now. The same one that she's been around for nearly a year and has paid no attention to. That is, until she figured out it spins around. Now, it's her favorite game. When she gets spun around a few times, she looks at me with drunk eyes and goes, "Whooooooah!" Yeah, no doubt.

In this photo, we were in the middle of a spinning session, and I had the audacity to pause long enough to snap a picture. Why are her hands blurry? Because she's doing the sign language sign for "more" while yelling, "More! More! More!" Doctor, I think we may have a problem.

We call that game "Dizzy!" and unsuprisingly Annie likes her altered states, Anderson not so much.

Ah, the start of Geej fucking with her equilibrium, what's next, beer? Or will she just skip to the hard stuff?

Dude- put bars on and thorny plants under all the windows before her 13th birthday.
