I'm joining a gym with M. We have a 3 day trial pass so we haven't paid for anything yet. I sort of felt bad for the young woman who gave us a tour. She tried to sell us on the perks: the two free tanning sessions (no thanks) and free child care (what child). We looked blankly at her when she mentioned tanning and then after the child care thing didn't go over, she said, "Well, if you're ever babysitting and you want to come to the gym, you can take the kid with you."
Yeah, if I'm the worst babysitter ever:
Mom: Honey, what did you do with the babysitter today?
Kid: Well, she took me to the gym with her boyfriend. And I sat in an emptied out closet with the dirty laundry while they used the StairMaster. Can she babysit me again next week?
But I'm legitimately excited to exercise. I've forgotten how. They have spinning classes. I think that means you pedal really fast on a stationary bike in a room full of women, listening to pop music. I'm PUMPED.
A new issue (#9) of Pax Americana is up. Love it, leave it, and then take it back into your heart.
Do you like cake? I can't go to this on Thursday but I wish I could. Can you?
