My friend is a bastard...lol
« on: October 13, 2008, 07:19:53 PM »
Oh, f#ck me, 2-hour training session and I am sore and muddy.  It's awesome...lol.  Just thought I'd post something from a post-training convo before I go and clean off my shoes.

One of my friends asked me why my nickname is "Falcon", and the truth is, it was just something I picked up over a decade ago.  We had to do these animal collages for a bio. class in high school and I had to do mine on falcons, so I ended up getting obsessed with them.  My classmates started calling me "Falcon" because my actual middle name is Franklin and I have a large nose(similar to a beak)...lol.  But I also took into account that falcons are noble, intelligent, and the fastest animals on the planet.

So he asked what made me choose it as my traceur name, and I said, "Well, I like being airborne"...cause who doesn't, amirite? lol.  Plus, I just love the image of a falcon soaring through the sky, with absolutely nothing to hold it down.  So then he made a crack that with my size, maybe I should change my nickname to "Bumblebee".  I asked why, and he said that physicists have proven that the bumblebee is too large for its wingspan and technically shouldn't be able to fly, but it does anyway...lol.

All in all, there's no shame in being a bumblebee, but I still consider him a bastard because he knew me back when I was skinny, and makes cracks like that about my weight whenever he can.  I let the bumblebee comment slide, but I did end up smacking him when he apologized and said he was just "falcon around"...:P.  I will not tolerate that level of corniness in my presence! lol

Oh nice lol. Falcon around.

Traceurs are bumblebees. Humans shouldn't be able to fly, but we can  8)

Good analogy, but they've figured out how bumblebees fly D:
