If _______ was an Olympic sport, I'd have a gold medal around my neck.
Let's see what I'm good at...
I'm horrendous at sports. Just the worst. I was sort of good at Scram Ball in the 90's but only because I wanted to hold on to my pink wrist bands. Damn those other neighborhood kids for trying to take away my hot pink glory. Anyways that is not what I want to use as my Olympic sport topic. I had originally thought about tying last week's topic (Shelfies) and this week's topic with the sport of navigating a floor full of toys both loose and mint. The gold medal would certainly go to the person able to avoid stepping on any sharp pieces. This would mean that I would have to share images of the mess that is my collection right now and I was not interested in doing that just yet.
What to do? What to do? During my contemplation of this topic my phone rang. I recently changed my Dynasty themed ring tone to Mega Man 2's Bubble Man stage. I can't help but hum along to Bubble Man's stage music. It makes me happy, which is what led me to coming up with my answer for this topic.
The fictional Olympic sport I'd totally get the gold for would be humming video game songs. My humming is so nice and versatile that I can hum to most Mega Man stages and you would think someone was actually playing the game. I'm that good.
The musical talent I have with humming brings to life the sweet melodies of Super Mario Bros. 2. I reach soaring operatic hummed heights with anything Final Fantasy related. I bring a goofy charm with my take on spooky songs from Zombies Ate My Neighbors. Don't even get me started on the orchestra my mouth can create with Zelda II: Link's Adventures. It's pure magic and I'd completely get the Gold. Russia would pit some blonde powerhouse against me but she'd stumble in some way so as to seal my spot in first place. With a head hanging low she'd leave the Olympics shocked at how she was transported by my insane humming skills. It'd be everything and an arm cannon.
It'd also be the only moment I'd win a real medal. I've never really won anything in my life. (Don't cry for me Etheria because I have a fabulous toy collection.) My lack of awards was mostly because I never really joined anything to win. I did try to get ribbons in the Rodeo Art Fair every year during my time in public school but my Rodeo art was too much for the judges. I loved drawing saloon girls with guns, neon cacti, and images of Native American women in bright colors with animal skulls. They just never understood my visions. I don't even really know that I understood them either.
I am rambling and getting off track which is known to happen a time or two. So there you have it, my winning sport would be humming video game songs. For the Winter Olympics I'd win for humming television theme songs, which would include cartoons as well. Melrose Place and Dynasty are two of my all time best hums. Here's to nothing but gold around my pretty little neck.
You can check out some of the songs I'd hum for the gold right below!

I'm not the only one taking part in these What If? Olympics.
He's a Rebel With Causes and a shopping habit I know I've done a time or two. Now I want to hum a Crystal's song. Go check out the link!
I'll add more as they become available. I am so excited that Brian has ushered in a new era with Cool and Collected's Pop Culture League! Here's to some more fun and interesting topics. Hope you are all doing well. All My Toys will be coming up soon as toy Miss M prepares to join the cast of Jaws 5. Take care!
