Zinger!

The following story is 100% accurate.

Today, I returned to the gym for the first time in about 3 years. While not grossly out of shape, I have put on a few pounds and developed some lazy habits that are bound to catch up to me as I head into mid-life.

Having not lifted a weight in 3 years, I decided it would be a really good idea to 'ease back into it'.

as my buddy (who is also 'easing back into it') and I were working on our triceps, a woman in her mid 60's looked at the amount of weight I had on the machine and said, "Wow, if you go any lighter you're going to have to trade beds with your wife."

Her statement caused me to think about three things:
1) I can't believe a 65 year old lady would actually drop a zinger like that....hilarious!
2) Apparently 65 year old married couples sleep in seperate beds and assume the rest of us do, too.
3) I'm weak.

It is pretty funny. But, what do you think it means? Was she calling you a girl?

Funny story.

You did the right thing though - about ten years ago I decided the same thing and joined a local YMCA and went to work out. I had the misfortune of running into a old high school buddy right at the start of my first work out in years and he and I decided to work out together. He had never stopped working out and pushed me to keep up. It didn't feel to bad while I was doing it but for the next few days I could not lift my arms from my sides. They were like noodles flopping around attached to my shoulders.
