I am a bad ass

Went to the gym again last night, full of dread and fear: since all my muscles had exploded last time I went, what did I have left to go on? As it turned out, there was nothing to worry about: like most things, it gets easier with practice. Did my whole routine, plus a couple of shots at the heavy bag. I ain't one to tell stories out of school but fat or no I wouldn't want to be on the other end of my flying fists and feet. YOU HEAR THAT, IMAGINARY ZOMBIES WHO I ALWAYS GET INTO FIGHTS WITH?

There was this Brazilian guy there (how do I know he was Brazilian? You can smell it, or possibly there was a big Brazilian flag logo on his clipboard), and he did that thing where he'll do one heavy lift, and then sit there for ten minutes recovering before doing his next heavy lift, while meanwhile I stand there in the middle of my circuit like an idiot, waiting for him to finish. I try not to be a dick about this; I know some people do lots of reps, and some people go for weight, and that's fine. But LET'S MOVE ALONG, man. I could do all my reps in the time it takes you to recover, and there's really no reason you have to sit on the machine to do your theatrical heavy breathing and stretching; can't you do that pretty much anywhere?

Okay then.
