Pump It Up Everybody!

If you've been to the gym lately, you've probably noticed what I notice. The people that should be there, aren't there. They're at Wal-Mart pushing a shopping cart filled with twenty-pound bags of Doritos. And the people that are there shouldn't be there, because their bodies are already so goddam perfect they should be in an art museum, not a gym. Which puts the rest of us in a rather awkward position. Do we dare show up at the gym even though we are clearly not worthy? Or do we stay away out of shame and embarrassment and give up any chance of becoming one of the beautiful people? I say to hell with shame! Screw embarrassment! Let us storm the barricades! Let us, the flabby, the uncoodinated, the deathly pale geeks of the world demand a place at the throne of the hot and hunky! Stand aside Mr. Universe. Move over Miss Perfect Ten. We may be a little doughy, or we may be nothing but skin and bones, but we will not be denied. We are going to prance around in our spandex. We are going to wear our short shorts. We are going to bare our midriffs and any other riffs we can think of, and you're going to take it and like it! So get ready, we'll be there bright and early tomorrow morning. Or maybe the day after. Or next Monday for sure.
