Pushups and Headbutts
In my ongoing quest to â€œbuild a better Dustin,â€ Iâ€™ve decided to up my workout routine:
Three miles of running twice a week (one thing great about Eugene, Oregon: It has about 600,000 great running trails), and also pushups using this awesome gadget I bought called the Pushup Pro.
Last night, I was just cranking out the pushupsâ€“completely in a zone, manâ€“when all the sudden, as Iâ€™m on the downward portion of a pushup, Casper comes out of nowhere and walks RIGHT under my face. The result: I get a nice eye, nose and mouth full of Casperness.
Itâ€™s not like I could be mad at Casper for nixing my mojoâ€“I had to imagine it from his point of view:â€Oh look! Thereâ€™s that strange guy who walks on two legs whoâ€™s the same color as me! Iâ€™m gonna go say hi! OUCH! Why did he just headbutt me?!â€
Big surprise, Casper left the room after that one. I started doing another set of pushupsâ€¦then our cat Athena started rubbing up against my arm, purring.
Todayâ€™s big lesson: When doing pushups, shut the door, jackass.
