Y is for Yo-yos


Why is it that every yo-yo I try is defective?

Only one more sub-par post to go, and this alphabet challenge is done!

  2. Not sub-part at all! I feel the same way about yo-yos. ;)

  3. I was already laughing at the picture, just from seeing it in my dashboard.

    I've come to the conclusion that Yo-Yos hate me and have been designed solely, to upset my mental well-being and provide me with a mental breakdown.

  4. love the yo-yo string!!!
    i was very proud as a kid that i learned "around the world" and "walk the dog" as my stellar yo-yo moves. if i tried now, i would get a bonked head, i am sure.

  5. Yo yos are bullshit. I look the same way when I try to use em.

  6. They still make yo-yo's? Where do you plug them into the console?

    1. I thought they might require a USB connection, but its quite obvious that yo-yos would need a Fire-wire connection. Hahahahahahahaha ....

  7. Sub-par? Oh puhleeze! Stephanie, your clay work is amazing and always brings a smile to my day!

    As for yo-yos, they are tiny spawns of the devil, purposely designed never to work correctly.

    You must be mighty glad this daily challenge is almost at an end. Kudos to you and all who did this. I'm truly in awe!

    1. I've missed telling stories. I'm looking forward to going back to my old format, with overly long stories.

  8. If I can get the yo-yo to come back to me more than once, I consider myself a pro!

    You are almost to Z ;)

  9. Did I ever tell you about the time I worked phone support while learning to yo-yo, and while trying to do a little yo-yo flip over my hand I did "around the world" instead and beamed myself in the head so hard I fell over?

    "No, sir, I am not laughing at you, I just hit myself in the head with a yo-yo."

    True story.

    1. Bahaha! Leauxra, I wish I were you, because you keep telling me stories in the comments that - if they had happened to me - would make GREAT blog posts.

    2. You should turn them into comics.

  10. If it is any minor comfort to you, my dear, remember that 'sub-par' backwards is 'rap-bus'.

    1. So, in this case, would a defective 'you' be caLLed a 'you-you' ?

    2. I like it! A you-you!
      I'm a you-you :(

      Delete
    3. You are a you-you with a yo-yo?

    4. I'm defective? Crap. I wonder if I'm still on warranty.

      Delete
  12. Um, I actually thought you were getting even better!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I've never had a lot of luck with yo-yos either. Probably should give it a try again. I can probably get one at the Dollar Store!!

  18. Sub-par?! Girl you've ROCKED this challenge!!! Making the clay, coming up with the ides.. Anything but sub-par.

    I never liked yo-yos. I mean, they don't *do* anything. And I'm too special to learn their tricks.

    1. But I like to think of myself as a story-teller. A lot of these posts haven't been the sort of thing that I'd normally post. still though, I'm having fun!

  20. I hate yo-yo's almost as much as paddle balls.
    (My 5 yr.old was looking over my shoulder just now. He said, "I like your funny mouth, lady.")

  21. My nephew was kind enough to get a yo-yo for us this weekend. I'm sure there is some dastardly deed I can commit to repay him.

  22. Maybe you should try a new string in the yoyo. That's my first tip of the day, brought to you by:

    And you're amazing for doing this challenge!

  26. Cute!
    Your so-called "sub-par post" put a smile on my dial!

  27. Me too. Yo-yos and hula hoops. For some reason I always get defective yo-yos and hula hoops.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I don't think this is a sub-par post. :) But I do think this is a valid question. All the yo-yos I touch are also broken. Stupid yo-yos.
