My YMCA is so shiny. There’s so much stainless steel that I feel like I’ve been dropped into a silverware drawer. There’s even a shiny, silver grill over the free-weights area that seems to serve no other purpose than to be glittery and to trap Frisbees. Joining the Y is the best decision I’ve made all year. While that only includes 22 days so far, I think it’ll be sitting in the top spot for awhile.

There used to be an entry here that was a little bit too morbidly humorous. I realized it was in bad taste and removed it. I goofed up and I’m sorry. I apologize for offending anyone and I promise not to write any more entries at 7:00 in the morning before I dash off to work.
Why don’t you look at cute kitties and puppies instead?
