I was under the impression that they were for my entertainment (and blog fodder), and the exercise was just gravy.
But the gym here? Boring! Everyone is normal.
In fact, I'm beginning to wonder if maybe I'm the freak at this gym--if maybe the normal people are going home and making up nicknames for me and describing my freakishness in great detail on their blogs.
Also? Today I pinched my back fat in the ab machine.
