You all should be used to it by now. 🙂
This evening, Pinboy announced that he wants to try push-ups during our next meeting:
Pinboy: I’m going to push you a little harder next time. (It’s fatigue week and I was feeling it.) We’ll do weights (me, inside…YAY!) and I’m going to see If I can get you to do some push ups.
Me: On the floor?
Pinboy: Where else are you going to do them?
Me: Against the wall?
Pinboy: Laughing too much to form words. Hey, at least I make him laugh. Really…he likes my sense of humor.
Me: You remember me telling you I lost the use of my legs a few years back, right?
Pinboy: Yeah. How does that mean you can’t get up off the floor.
Me: Shooting him a dirty look with a smirk. (Inside…dude, you’re gonna have to pick me up and we both know what I weigh.)
Pinboy: You’re doing really well now and getting more flexibility. You’ll be fine.
Me: (Inside my head while still giving him a smirk…) Uh, I’ll be practicing getting up off of the floor tomorrow.
Really. I will be practicing. The last time I was on the floor was over the summer when I decided to fold some clothes while sitting on the floor. I needed that bed that was next me. My biggest fear is that people will be staring at me while I struggle to get up and down, like I’m pathetic and a loser. I’m not a pathetic loser, dangit. Grrrr.
So, I have 100+ essays, 50 exams, about 75/80 other pieces of writing, and about 50 quizzes to grade…by Thursday. Am I grading right now? NOPE! Too tired.
Really hoping for a snow day this week. Fingers and toes are crossed.
I’m all for redemption and for learning from errors in judgment; however, when I saw Geithner take his oath of office tonight and then get a standing ovation, well, that just steamed me. I’m going to have to pay taxes this year. Do you think if I tried his excuse for not paying taxes, it would work? Huh?
Why are contraceptives considered necessary to economic stimulus?
