Thankfully the summer has been rather mild for the most part here in the greater NYC area. So the running outside hasn’t been too bad, but still, I come back rather sweaty. That’s when this plays out..
Heading to the bathroom for a shower. Hands grab onto shirt to pull it off (don’t worry this isn’t 52 shades of gray)..
Head: Humming along tiredly..
Hands: (partway pulling the shirt up) Eww WTF this is disgusting! (Let go of shirt which falls back down)
Body: (much like a boiled frog, previously ignorant of the disgusting sweat infused material covering it, has been woken up) AAAAAAAAAAA, get it off get it off GET IT OFFFF!!!!
Hands: No way am I touching that again.
Body: Cmon cmon cmon it’s gross. Just grab it quick.
Head: Humming along tiredly…
Legs: Hey knock it off up there. We’ve been running for miles carrying you lot and we want a hot shower and a sit down.
Body: (Wailing on the ground gibbering) get it off get it off get it off
Legs: Don’t make us come up there!
Hands: Alright alright. Pull shirt up.
Face: (suddenly covered in sweaty shirt) (muffled) AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
Spring is definitely here and summer is not too far off, and I can say I am looking forward to a number of things:
1 – Not Being So Hot. Or at least I hope so since I was cold all winter. I’ve got a lot less padding, so I hope it translates.
2 – Shorts. The wife reminded me, I need to get some, since all my shorts are 16-18 inches ago.
3 – Beach Time. While I can lose a few pounds still, I won’t be the biggest guy out there by far. May even take the ol’ shirt off.
4 – Water Park Time. Same as beach, we’ll be going to a water park for a few days for the little one.
5 – Rollerblading – assuming I can shake a few minutes out of the training, used to love rollerblading. And they should fit again now!
6 – Yard Work. Not really, but I am looking forward to not being so exhausted by it.
7 – Amusement Parks. Little one might be big enough for a ride out to Rye Playland. I will enjoy fitting in the rides.
8 – BBQ’ing (grilling to the southerners). Well I look forward to that every year, so not weight loss related. But I do a mean grilled vegetable as well as burgers.
9. Hikes. Just have to find some kid friendly ones.
10. ? – I’m sure I’ll think of something! Summertime is always full of opportunity!
