on walking to the gym...

me: (walking to the gym, passing a bus stop.)
dirty old bum: (leaning over bench.) "You gonna run twenty miles?"
me: (why is this old bum talking to me?) "Um, no?"
dirty old bum: (all surprised.) "Why not?"

You want to KNOW WHY NOT? To me, running twenty miles doesn't = a work out. To me, running twenty miles = a death sentence. I am not kidding you. We're lucky I got my bootie into the gym to walk briskly on the treadmill at a 2.5 incline for 45 minutes!

So, thank you, dirty old bum with the gravely voice. Thank you for giving me an inferiority complex.

I appreciate it.


  1. hahaha to me a 20 mile run = godzilla is on my ass get out of my way,
    if not then gosh I will not dream to attempt it. and a 2.5 mile run on a incline for 45 minutes, wow now you've got me feeling a little inferior...

  2. You gonna get a JOB, old man?? Why NOT?!!?!

    Sorry, that was probably mean.

    20 miles? yeah right! I'm lucky to go 2.5 during a workout!

  3. yea for me a 20 mile run=never gonna happen. I like the gym, but no need to kill myself in the process, I totally agree with you.

  4. That's one of the funniest things I've heard all day, I would have bust out laughing as soon as he said that. Awesome.
