As part of my daily routine at the gym, I throw medicine balls at a slanted mini-trampoline. I play catch with this “bounce back” with heavier and heavier balls.
I manage at least 50 repetitions with each ball.
Only thing, a serious problem has arisen.
As these young women walk by my work station, it is VERY hard to keep my concentration focused on the trampoline.
Ladies, please understand the risk you are creating:
- I may not be able to catch the ball, thereby hurting someone behind me.
- I may throw the ball past the trampoline, hurting someone in front of me.
- I may miss catching the ball properly, hurting myself.
Don’t laugh. It happened just yesterday – the ball smacked me a good one on the top of my head. I have a cut to prove it.
Tall and tan and young and lovely,
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, each one she passes goes, “Aaah…”
When she walks, she’s like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gently
That when she passes, each one she passes goes, “Aaah…”
