Your Mom

“A long time ago I learned not to explain things to people. It misleads them into thinking they’re entitled to know everything I do.” – Lisa Kleypas

friends with bennies

I think ‘your mom’ falls on the efficient axis (would we call that “easy”…?), but in the event you have a stiff crowd, here are some better ways to end a conversation.

Or you can shut it down before the conversation begins by soliciting someone for complimentary professional assistance via Instagram message, without so much as an introductory, ‘hello’. True story.

Complaining: another way to end it.

Su | Pre-gamed my workout with some Postino action with The Engineer and The Scientist. Maybe a little too close to my training, but look, I survived. Not my best workout, but a good burn – no pain. Adjusted the GHD machine following filming and found a better position. Hip extensions are way harder than the GHRs. I left my lifters on for the RDLs, and ooh did they make those feel nice!

M | Oh man, I really liked A, though it surprised me with how much it got me breathing. I was shooting for 5 sets at 85, which did not happen. The limiter was the hang power snatch. My technique felt decent, but I could not get a grip on the barbell. There were lots of bodies in the gym and it was pretty humid in there. Is that an excuse or an explanation…? Need to get myself a fanny pack for chalk. I was satisfied with how everything felt and my DUs were smooth and speedy, which seems to be a good indication that the body – or at least the CNS – is happy (okay, rested).

Tu | Really felt the row in the flutes. Part C had me sucking wind pretty good. Was accidentally an asshole in the turf area when a dude impeded my clearly demarcated area rather than picking up equipment that someone left that was in his way. I think I threw some shade as I took 15 seconds to move said equipment so he could monster walk further than 3” away from me. I’ve been calling these oblivious fuckers “landmines” in my head, but I am beginning to think I should call them “triggers”…

One thought on “Your Mom”

  1. I’m The Engineer! That is THE BEST thing I’ve seen this week ❤ Naturally that means you are The Architect, which I love on several levels.
