white shorts again...

made it to gym today and I ran, I ran so far away....(flock of seagulls). anyway, I ran on the treadmill some and then started up with my arms day. Gym buddy C was there today and lifter and getting all pumped up. that boy is getting all round and hard arms shoulders back chest. dang boy, take it easy wouldya?
 he was doing a lot of arms also and abs and we talked a bit in between sets. today's conversation was mainly about his new classes at a different local community college than the one I work at, one of which is anatomy and he was telling me how the prof said when doing bicep curls to curl the dumbell and then move the arm so that it goes back behind your neck, something like that, and then he demonstrated for me etc etc.. blah blah. and we talked about him having the flu last weekend which explains why I've without for a week...(tsk tskk ha). And he was saying how he hated it and threw up a few times, in which the conversation turned and we were agreeing that we both hardly ever threw up and had what I call cast iron stomach. and He was saying how he's always healthy and never sick, and I said yeah I'm same way, except when I drank too much in college and threw up, which was about once a year, long enough for me to forget how awful it felt. ha and I told him I went to a Christian college and we didn't ever drink so it was always an end of school year cut loose party that we'd indeed have too much. ha he said if he goes out he'll have just one or two beers and only drank more than that when staying home, which I infer means with friends or his gf. at a party maybe? who knows. I told him how I don't drink anymore unless it's a special b-day or something and then it was just a beer or two.
 I don't know why I'm typing the whole conversation, not really that sexy. Let me tell you more about the white shorts he had on, mmmm. although he had a t-shirt on that was a little longer in front and so you got a glimpse of that bulge just every now and then. the shirt though had the sleeve cut off so you had some nice gaps in which to see his arms, shoulders, bit of pecs and the side view. hmm I worked my arms everything I could think of to do, and got out of the gym about a half hour after he left. watched NBC comedy tonight for about an hour, turned it off when The Office came on. I have a busy weekend coming up. dinner with my vet friend A tomorrow night, and then up early early early Saturday for a teacher certification test all the way down in Norman at 7:15am. ugh And then Sunday I'll be gone all day south to a town east of Denton TX. My mom and dad were best friends with another young couple when they first moved down to Texas before they had me. So My mom and her friend N were pregnant at the same time. So I was best friends with G for the first 6 years of my life before my family moved to OKC. They had a daughter my older sister's age, so both our family's would get together once a year either here in OKC or in Texas or halfway at Lake Murray for summer vacation, also they would trade one of us for the other and we'd stay a week with the other family, both boys in one place and the sisters in another. We did this right up until about the time I was in middle school, at which time long distance childhood friends usually drift apart you know...
 Well anyway, all this to say that the mom, N, died yesterday and so as we've all been watching and praying and keeping tabs on facebook the last few months ( she'd been hospitalized a while and the family just turned off the respirator yesterday morning) now we are deciding who can go to the funeral Sunday. My brother is coming down from KS and then my two sisters here in okc and I will also go, and my folks of course. My dad was asked to be a pallbearer, which is interesting because he has no idea why any of us are even bothering going... My dad is so madly in love with my mom but all sentiment stops there. ha! When my mom called to tell me the arrangements and news about who was going etc, we discussed dad's frustration in what the big deal was and why was our entire family going and how he told mom not to convince anyone they should go...that's my dad! In fact, if you watch "In the Middle" on ABC, this week's episode was EXACTLY about that, how the father was a sort of loner and stayed at home. ha My dad does have golfing buddies but that's about it. he's all about staying home with mom. such love. ha
 So anyway, I'll be with my family all day SUnday driving down and back. WE are all looking forward to the meaningful time together, and I also am really looking forward to seeing people I remember from growing up, especially my godmother who has sent me a card/letter and $5 my entire life ever since we moved. She was part of the cirlce of friends of my folks down in TX. I'll also see my former buddy G. he's not on facebook and we've lost touch, getting news about the other only from our moms over the years of course. okay bring the weekend on! I'll try to get a post up at least daily if possible. cheers

funerals seem to be the one time when friends we made at different times in our lives re-connect to celebrate the life of someone we all held dear. my condolences on your loss my friend. i hope you will cherish this time together w/ family and former friends.

pax tibi frater!
