I taught myself how to do cartwheels and handstands when I was five. I can still do 'em, forty years later (but not nearly as well).

This is a picture from the early '90s (or possibly late '80s) in Santa Cruz taken by my friend Kyrie. -
Senior year of high school for the talent show, I walked across the stage on my hands. It was the second night of the show. I was dating another senior, Sara S., who was the director of the show. Everyone had horrible senioritis and was completely unmotivated. The talent show was pretty much terrible start to finish. During one lengthy sketch that wasn't getting any laughs (and hadn't had any the night before), she pushed me out of the wings and told me to walk across the stage on my hands. -
I guess it was her equivalent of using one of those hooked poles that you see in old vaudeville talkies to yank the performers off the stage when they're bombing. -
Good job! I never managed to master walking on my hands. I could do handstands, and eventually even managed to push myself up from a headstand to a handstand, but somehow I couldn't sustain walking on my hands for more than a few feeble 'steps.' -
I tried this once, took out a small orphanage -
I've had so many dreams of walking my hands! I've never tried it though. I'm not strong enough. -

Zu, if you have never tried it, how do you know you're not strong enough? Try it! -
