Eli the heckler

This morning, I didn't work until 9:00 AM, a nice change from my usual 7:30 AM shift. I took advantage of the extra time by working out in the morning rather than the afternoon.

I didn't count on the fact that Eli gets rather punchy in the mornings. I stuck my toes under our couch while I did sit ups, and Eli perched on the couch above me and laughed hysterically. I'm not sure if he was mocking me or not, but I found the act demoralizing none the less.

I did manage however to stop him from throwing his stuffed animals at me while I completed my sets - he laughed a little less heartily after that.

I can't wait to tell Stan!

I think the trick will be to incorporate him into your workout routine. Like throw a stuffed animal BACK at him with every situp. You'll get an extra workout and strike fear into the heart of workout hecklers.

Oh, and I hear Becca wants you to invest in some red stretchy pants.

I'm sure Stan can implement Eli's training technique into his command...

As for the red stretchy pants... let's just say that Becca would have to buy me a new gun before I'd ever consider getting into a pair of pants like that, much less participating in an aerobics class while wearing them - yuck!

I usually handle Eli by tickling him until he can't breathe :-)

Sometimes... when you are a man, you wear stretchy pants... in your room. Just for fun.
