(Sorry for the lack of posts, I’ve been overseas on an intense study placement and didn’t have time to breathe!)
So I’ve recently started cheerleading! I thought it was time to stop watching “Bring It On” on repeat and try it out before I get too old.
It was my second training tonight, and I’ve been wearing my pump clipped to my sports bra like I do in dance and calisthenics. I thought that would be ok…IT WAS NOT OK.
So we’re doing jumps, and we’re doing a “herkie”, which looks like this.
We’re on a spring floor, and I got really excited because I’ve spent the best part 18 years on hard floorboards! The coach shouts “and 1,2,3,4”, I jump ridiculously enthusiastically and MY PUMP GOES FLYING.
OUT OF MY BRA, HITS ME ON THE FACE, THEN OUT TOWARDS THE FLOOR.
For about a millisecond it dangled there, somewhere near my crotch (shout out to Animas Inset IIs for staying stuck to my belly even when it was dangling completely unsupported). As I came down, I grabbed it with the hand that wasn’t up near my head and stuffed it back into my bra, cleanly snapping back to “8!”, with no-one the wiser.
I don’t want to brag, but I felt as cool as this dude.
Moral of the story, pump is coming OFF for cheerleading!
