Everyone Needs a Kick in the Ass Sometimes
Why do I love Christina Katz, and her persistent and occasionally painful ass kickery? (As captured in The Writer’s Workout, among other places.) Because she pushes me, hard. She reminds me of this aerobics teacher I used to have–my favorite one EVER, who weighed about a hundred pounds and jumped around her three-stack aerobic step like a cheerleader dating Charlie Sheen. Her classes were always packed, even though she was–or especially because she was–a bit of a tyrant.
During a particularly strenuous class she paused, glared into the mirror, and said into her Madonna mic, “Oh, I’m bitch, huh? But your ass sure looks good, doesn’t it?”
Just like my old aerobics teacher, Christina makes your ass look good.
