My first aerobics class


My wife goes to an aerobics class on Saturday mornings, but she had to take our daughters somewhere so she suggested I go.

I did.

Yes.  It is was all women.

Yes I was a doofus.

It was a great workout. Toward the end, our chirpy instructor said,

YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME”

Except I was the only guy, and I was definitely not awesome.

So validating though, you know, to hear that..

YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!

I was welling up.  Not really. I think I lacked the emotional range to really appreciate it when someone says,

YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!

I don’t think it would go over well if I said that to my men’s basketball team.

YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!

  Actually, I have noticed women are very stoic when they are suffering through a workout. Maybe they are usually more expressive unless a man shows up in their class.

One thing is for sure , Betty White was right… women can take a pounding much better than a man.
