I have to laugh about our 'cartwheels chat.'
My party piece is all about cartwheels. At social gatherings I encourage people to perform whatever is their speciality, whether it be singing, reciting poetry, telling a joke...you get the idea.
When it's my turn, I get them to anticipate my party piece by beginning with an exaggerated 'warm-up', limbering and bouncing on my feets, waving my arms around, twisting my torso, bending and flexing my neck...this can take a good two minutes. I then tell them to clear a path; they move to either side of the room excitedly expecting great things. My face is contorted with feigned concentration; I make my run-up and...collapse in a heap!!
It never fails to amuse because I have no inhibitions about looking silly if it's entertaining others.
