Dodging snowballs with tic-tac-toe

Thursday, January 03, 2019

I was wandering along happily in SparkLand this morning, minding my own business and supporting my Panther BLC team. Suddenly, 4 snowballs sent me dodging for cover:

I went right to those shoulder presses. I knocked the snowball out of the park as I upped the reps to 3 sets of 12 shoulder presses!


I shot a glance at my tic-tac-toe scorecard and added in 3 sets of pushups and 3 sets of bicep curls for good measure so I could mark off one of those boxes.

Hmmm...what else could I mark off? I could earn 50 SparkPoints easily! emoticon

I spun the wheel, then headed to SparkAmerica. The fifth team affinity flag yielded an easy 50 points. I took one more glance at the scorecard and wandered across the room to do 100 stepups. Whew!

The next two snowball tasks were easy - I drink 8 cups of water every day, so I counted yesterdays water intake since that's when my teammate threw it.


I gave myself a pat on the back for tossing some broccoli into my bowl of grits this morning - another snowball easily dodged.


That final snowball presented a bit more of a challenge. I'm not great at blogging consistently on SP, and I've had a bit of writer's block on my own blog ( ) this week. Don't worry...a new entry will be forthcoming, but it'll take a bit of work.

So here I am, working on a SparkBlog to dodge that last snowball. Then I guess I'll be off to toss a few of my own.

Look out, fellow Panthers!
