So, as I was climbing on to the stationary bike, a lovely gentleman asked for my assistance with the recumbent bike. Let's call him Carl. I was more than happy to help. Once we got Carl started on his 30 minute ride, we had a short conversation about how he was training for a fifty mile bike ride so that he could ride to his 50th high school reunion.
He's totally awesome. He smoked me. He pedaled quickly and I could tell that this bike ride was going to be a piece of cake. I hope Carl's high school sweetheart is there to admire his bike riding ability. As I was pedaling along, and he said, "you're doing a great job!" I felt so encouraged.
So now, he's totally my new gym pal. Yay Carl!
I had to explain that my Ipod wasn't a heart monitor and we had a laugh.
I can't quit this gym. Everyone is too nice and they entertain me, and I hope I entertain them.
Now for the new kitchen pal:
This weekend I had to say goodbye to a house guest who was sleeping on the couch for a while. She's a good friend and I'll miss her. But let me tell you! She gave me one of the coolest gifts ever (sennet (?) sound!):
And as one totally awesome coworker put it: "You are one lucky Beyotch!"
Yes! So now, this lucky beyotch will make all of you cookies and cupcakes and cake to your little hearts' content.
Hooray! Red Velvet, chocolate, whatever!
