THAT THING YOU DO?

I had a dream about Arnold Schwarzenegger last night; I won’t go into details because you know what happened. So, driving into work I kept thinking “where the hell did that come from?” Then, as I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed, I remembered that last night I was madly flipping through my copy of The New Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding by : Arnold Schwarzenegger.*




I’ve always done this "thing" at the gym, It’s sort of a dumbbell thing, sort of, like….See I don’t know the name of it…. You're perpendicular on the flat bench with just your shoulders resting and lift a ninety-five pound weight over your head. At any time you could drop the weight and end up giving your dentist around five grand.

I really look forward to doing this…. thing, this routine but someone asked about it, and I just stared back blankly. Like asking a cow the linear approximation and derivative of tatter-tots.

This was why I was tearing through, trying to find a title. I never did. Mostly because I was tired, but I will. And, I’ll report back. Don’t you just love a mystery? If you know what the heck I’m talking about please drop me a line.


*get it here.

Freaky how I couldn't rememeber that, being you use a dumbell and you pull it over. Huh.

Like my friends say, "pretty, just not smart."
