There're Snakes In There

13 curious pax entered the DHS gloom to find out why exactly Sway wanted each to bring $2.00. Here’s a hint: it wasn’t to pay the paperboy. By the end, there were few laughs and little chatter as a fat-burning cardio downpainment was made in Columbia. No one was cheated, including the QIC who nearly spilled merlot on the second set of power jumps.

  • 24 cement blocks miraculously appeared overnight in our AO and joined an overgrown stack of bricks stored in an old dog pen on the DHS campus. Reported cost on these was $1.41 plus tax, rounded up to — you guessed it — $2.00. They will remain in the AO.
  • Upon learning the location of the blocks, Heartbreaker informed the group,”There’re snakes in there. I’ve seen ’em.”  None were spotted today.
  • Lots of new exercises today required instruction and time did not permit Mary. Only the QIC was disappointed.
  • Sway brought a printed list of the workout. However, in the gloom it was nearly impossible to read. Lesson: either memorize it or print bigger
  • 2 FNG’s this morning, showing definite evidence the word is spreading.
