Feel Good Stories and a Tough Woman

Over the years I put together a small collection of feel-good stories. I can’t testify to their veracity, but for what it’s worth I read them in newspapers. Here are three of my favorites.

Greco-Roman Wrestlers

Greco-Roman wrestlers are immensely strong. They specialize in grasping, holding, and throwing other men as strong as they are. Two Greco-Roman wrestlers were returning home from an international competition in Europe. On the airplane a passenger got drunk and was threatening other passengers and the crew. One of the wrestlers stood up, grabbed the drunk from behind, plopped into a seat with the man on his lap, and held him locked in position for three hours until the plane landed.

Linford Christie, olympic gold medalist

At the end of the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona a woman was sitting in the airport waiting for her plane. A man ran up to her, grabbed her purse, and ran off. Sitting near the woman happened to be the fastest man in the world, waiting for his plane. Needless to say, the woman got her purse back.

The fastest man in the world at the 1992 Olympics was Linford Christie of Great Britain who won a gold medal running the 100 meter dash in 9.96 seconds. To get a perspective on how fast this is, 100 meters is about the length of a football field.

I do quite a bit of writing. Yes, I know, I’d better keep my day job. Mostly I write fiction, and the women in my stories are always intelligent and have strong personalities. Here are some pictures of an intelligent mentally strong and physically tough woman from Hawaii.

The woman’s name is Elisa Au. She is a World Karate Federation (WKF) World Champion. The WKF is the only international organization recognized by the Olympic Committee, and at international competitions in 2002 through 2005 Elisa won 11 gold, 3 silver, and 2 bronze medals.

At her college preparatory school Elisa also participated in figure skating, gymnastics, canoe paddling, and track and field, and she maintained honor roll status throughout high school. Her hobbies are reading, movies, and swimming and surfing—she is Hawaiian after all. In 2003 she graduated the University of Hawaii with a degree in Civil Engineering.

Elisa is a real cutie. If she’ll let you it’s okay to go to bed with her, but this is one woman you don’t want to fuck with.
