2nd Place Limbo Champion ๐Ÿ†

A summer memory. โ˜€๏ธ
  1. โ€ข
    At my summer work party we had a limbo competition.
    Prize = $500 blender ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
  2. โ€ข
    I'm a very reluctantly competitive person.
  3. โ€ข
    As in, I hate competition, but if I'm forced to compete, I WILL WIN.
  4. โ€ข
    Nearly everyone in the firm + their plus ones participated.
  5. โ€ข
    It was all fun and games until it was down to three.
  6. โ€ข
    My best friend = 5'-10"
    Yes we work together.
  7. โ€ข
    My deskmate = 4'-10"
  8. โ€ข
    And me = 5'-4"
  9. โ€ข
    Now everyone knows the right way to limbo is this:
    Bending backwards at the knees and lower back.
  10. โ€ข
    NOT like this:
    Squatting to the floor and shuffling under the limbo stick. (This was the best photo example I could find)
  11. โ€ข
    My 5'-10" friend fell to 3rd place due to her height.
    No small feat as one of the tallest women at the party.
  12. โ€ข
    Now the limbo stick is less than 2ft from the ground.
  13. โ€ข
    I attempt a few times and can't make it.
    I've already probably flashed half the crowd. Why did I wear an above-the-knee dress??
  14. โ€ข
    My 4'-10" deskmate squats and shuffles under. CHEATING
  15. โ€ข
    She's declared winner.
  16. โ€ข
    I graciously congratulate her.
    While internally thinking: ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ—กโ˜ 
  17. โ€ข
    Everyone tells my best friend and I that we were robbed.
  18. โ€ข
    The next day, our boss buys us each a runner-up blender as consolation.
  19. โ€ข
    I'm still mad. ๐Ÿ˜ค
  20. โ€ข
    But it's ok. I bought myself a Vitamix.
