But I'm back now, and what an exciting time, because Enter The Parrot is out today. Already, people all over the web are finding their inner kung fu selves.
But kung fu isn't just about flying high kicks and lightning fast punches (although they certainly can come in handy).
The Chinese words "gung fu" translate into something along the lines of "skill achieved through hard, honest work" and can be applied to anything from martial arts to even cooking! A great chef is said to "have good gung fu in the kitchen."
So even if you're not a martial arts practitioner, you can have kung fu in everything you do. Give it your best shot, because whether you're talented or not, if you put in the work, you will gain kung fu.
And now it's time for me to practice my kung fu of unpacking after a month-long trip...
