A “genius” idea

No comments

We had just completed a morning routine and were sitting around having a breather. Sweat was pouring out of us like crazy and that giddy recovery had started to replace the exhaustion. The conversation commenced by bouncing “reviews” of the routine we had just completed off each other. Basically we just swore a lot.

Once we got that out of our systems,  we moved onto general conversation – the weekend previous, the weekend coming, humorous things we encountered up to that point in the week, and new fitness purchases. One of the crew had purchased a new pair of shoes …
