A Guide On How To "Get Legs"

If you hang out with me then you'll probably hear me tell you to "get legs" more than once. For those who have experienced this already, they tend to respond with utter confusion, followed by the most popular question ever to be asked, "what?".

Well let me tell you something. This is no joke. This phrase is the phrase of all phrases. You simply cannot explain what it means; you must experience it. Feel it. Trust me, you'll know it when you get your legs.

I am not referring to the sticks connected to your body that allow you to walk. I a referring to the figurative legs. The ones you have to earn.

You are probably now thinking, "this makes no sense". And you are right. So, allow me to present to you a guide on how to "get legs". This guide will hopefully give you a better understanding of what it means to "get legs".

Prepare to be woke.

Example #1

You are driving on the freeway. People are speeding by, being careless drivers. Suddenly, a car changes lanes. Into your lane. without using their blinker. You gasp from the obscenity of it all. Your next exit is coming up, and you need to get into the next lane to make your exit. So what do you do? You wait until there is a big enough gap between cars for you to fit without being an a**hole and squeezing in as if there are no cars at all. And then, when the time is right, you do it. You use your blinker. You successfully changed lanes without being an a**hole. Not a single person gasped or sighed at your decision. You did it. You got legs.

Example #2

You are in school. You are minding your own business, trying to make it class on time when suddenly, you see them. The bullies. Those bad apples have been bugging you for days. The approach you. "Oh no,days" you think to yourself. They start calling you names and teasing you like there is no tomorrow. So what do you do? Do you run and cry? Do you just stand there and take it? No. You get legs. You go and tell an adult and they take care of those bullies and you never have to deal with them again. Oh snap, you got legs.

Example #3

You are at the gym. You want that hot bod. You work for that hot bod. You are on the treadmill, running for your life. It's hot, you're sweaty and you're tired. You want ice cream. You want a nap. You want to do nothing. So what do you do? You scream, "NO!" to your unhealthy choices, hear that imaginary voice in the distance screaming, "Run Forest, Run!" and you turn up the treadmill speed. You're hot bod thanks you for getting legs.

Example #4

You are in English class. The days assignment is to read the assigned novel as a class. The teacher asks for volunteers to read aloud. No one raises their hand. You all look around nervously, hoping someone will volunteer so that the teacher won't randomly pick someone to do it. So what do you do? You raise your hand. The burden of reading aloud is put upon yourself, and even though you don't want to, you will forever be seen as a hero to your classmates. They will forever know you as, "The Kid Who Got Legs".

Example #5

You are at the store. You have everything you need in your basket, except for one item. You cannot find this item. You look everywhere for this item. Every aisle has been inspected by you and is still nowhere to be seen. You need this item. So what do you do? You ask a worker for help. You push away your shopper pride. You talk to a stranger even though you hate talking to people. You asked for help, and you got your item. Your shopping trip is a success because you got legs.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone.

Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops.

"Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
