Gloves and cards don’t mix


A beautiful fall morning brought out 4 Davillians ready to kick start their day. Here’s what went down. Mosey to blacktop with a lap around to COP.

COP: SSH, LBC’s, DQ, Zombie Russian soldiers (Q mistake/invention named by Mr. Holland), mosey to middle of school for Workout Deck fun. Exercises were as follows: 3 sets, 20 reps, of merkins, flutter kicks and monkey humpers; 4 sets, 10 reps, of squats, SSH, and high knees; 3 sets, 10 reps, of American Hammers, plank jacks, and merkins, with a backwards run to other side of courtyard and back in between sets; 5 sets, 5 reps, of low, slow squats, shoulder taps, freddie mercurys, and 10 second plank; and last, 3 sets, 10 reps, derkins, calf raises and hand clap merkins.

Mosey to flag, 10 merkins, numberama, namerama, YHC took us out.


YHC’s work and home life has been a lot busier of late, so didn’t have time to compose a workout–no problem, I have the wonderful Workout Deck! The cards can be great, but a Q should still have more of a plan than YHC had (none) and gloves, cold weather and slick cards make choosing and figuring out things a lot more time consuming. Tclaps to Mr. Holland for consistently choosing Aces, YHC does not want to play poker with him; to Opus for knowing all the random songs we talked about, along with the right time for a good polka; and Mudface for NOT listening when YHC called out the exercises, leading to multiple repetions of what is next. To be fair to Mudface, the total lack of a plan was confusing at times. Even with that, a good time was had by all, with mumblechatter about whether a Sharpie can mark a ballot (consensus was yes), 80’s bands (Eurythmics, anyone), and other stuff YHC can’t remember 24 hours later. For the Merkins challenge, total count was 160. Thanks for letting me lead.

As usual, I have No Idea what I’m doing..
