The Journal of a Still Ring
Dear Journal,
ring brother Stilly and I, for the fist time, got to witness all of the routines for part one of the trials. We saw the strong, confident athletes doing their magnificent triple backs on high bar, and their 37 million circles on pommel horse. They were hopping across to different events, and in a matter of minutes it was our turn. Oh man, those guys were pulling us all around and yanking us up and down like we were just a piece of equipment!! But then again, I guess we just are. :(
Today was tryouts for the Olympics. My twin

Dear Journal,
This has this been a crazy day for me and Stilley.
When I'm just an old, dry still ring, one of the things I will remember from today will be the coffee break. No, Stilley and I were definitely not drinking coffee, but The Crew was.(We have no idea who they are, so we stick to "The Crew".) The Crew was just relaxing in the gym, when, all of the sudden, one of them had to trip. Coffee was flying everywhere, and I'm convinced that Stilly got a second.5 degree burn.

P.S. WE WILL REVENGE!!

Super Cool Pics!
This is what a high bar routine might look like.
