Lesson #8 – We All Start Out As A Potamus

21 Aug

We all start out as an awkward little Potamus. Well, those of us who are willing to admit it, anyway. What’s a Potamus? This guy:


And he’s hella funny because he’s just an awkward baby guy. He will bloom, though. Maybe one day we will see where his head ends and the rest of his body begins. Whatevs, that’s part of the process for all of us, isn’t it? In different ways. You know what I mean. Maybe not different for some of us, I suppose. All I know is that most of us start as something awkward which can later be seen as a little laughable. And I like that…it adds character. Feel free to share your example!

      But you can tell your head from your body I hope?

    It’s like that when I look back at my past blogs. At first they seem to awkward and ungainly, unlike the finely oiled machine that they’ve now become 🙂

    Some of us never stopped being awkward. One of the many reasons I work out at home.

    Awkward or are babies mostly brain…”I have not yet developed into a goofy elder type who does all kinds of shit for me, huh?”
