The 20th Time Is the Charm


It all started on Tuesday February, 14th, 2017 with a text message from Handshake to HoneyDo that he was disappointed in how his Valentine’s Day went and wanted to celebrate the next Tuesday Valentine’s Day with an epic beatdown at Quioccasin Middle School. They went in search of a Q worthy of such a beatdown and added Gypsy on February 15th, 2017, but he said he would be running in 2023. Then they tried Whitesnake on March 1st, 2017, but Whitesnake said he had February 14th, 2023 down on his calendar to develop new backblast ideas from 80s song lyrics. And on it went until February 13th, 2023 when HoneyDo added YHC to the text chain (the 20th) and asked for 45 minutes of Upright Alabama Prom Dates. Sure.

YHC started to brainstorm some ideas for a Q while packing that night, wrote a few things down, then ended up making stuff up along the way. Good thing Tryhard wasn’t there conducting Q evaluations.

The Thang:

Mosey to that dark place in the corner for COP: SSHs x20 IC. Upright Alabama Prom Dates x4.5 IC. CCDs, Scorpion Kicks, Reverse Crunches, Helicopters IC.

Mosey to the covered side of the school for Sally: to the tune of Moby’s Flower, do a Merkin on “Bring Sally Up”, hold a 6-inches on “Bring Sally Down”.

Mosey back to the concession stand for a Triple Check: People’s Chair, Reverse Crunches, and the timer runs backwards up the hill and run back down.

Mosey to the track for a synchronized Triple Check: Dips and Star Jumps. The timer runs a lap or lunges in the opposite direction until the lead runner passes the halfway mark, and lunges back. PAX continues until the first timer returns and Al Gore for the six.

Mosey back to the flag for the COT.

Announcements: Lunch was at Firehouse Subs – hope it was great!


The lights came on during the 3rd rep of Upright APDs. Perhaps we were caught on camera. YHC was done at 2, anyway.

HBR proverb of the day: It’s harder if you do it right. That is, indeed, what she said.
