Wednesday Bootcamp – Abs Focus

I brought the kettlebells again.

Actually, let me be clear about that.

It was 40 mintues before class, I couldn’t find my KB workout sheet so I thought I would print one off. I couldn’t find the list since it was on my pc at work. I remoted into work to get the list, halfway through the remote connection closed because our Citrix admin hasn’t licensed our remote connectivity software properly and so it cuts you off, leaving you with a distasteful licensing note and an inability to reconnect for 2 minutes… I finally managed to reconnect and find the list and email it to myself. Once done, I tried to print the thing only to find that when I turned on the printer 8 thousand sheets of my wife’s printouts from the last week were queued up first causing the printer to run out of paper. I finally got the printout done with only 15 minutes left until class, rushed into my car and halfway to gym realized I had forgotten the kettlebells. I turned around, just yards from Tim Hortons where I could see the drive through was empty as usual. I sped back home, grabbed the kettlebells and went back to Tims. Three cars in line? No problem. However, car #1 was apparently ordering a la carte and having the duck salad with au jus since it was taking them forever to take the order, never mind serve the person. Driver 2 took 3 minutes just to open her window to talk to the simpleton behind the speaker who then commenced to fill 3 screens of information with her order. Finally I got to order my coffee only because I couldn’t reverse out of the drive through and escape. As the drivers ahead moved along the start time for class came and went, and since I had been in line for over 7 minutes as soon as I got to the hole in the drive through lane I made my escape presumably leaving a spotty teenager confused holding my coffee that I can presume with confidence was probably wrong anyway. I got to the gym only to find out that the person for whom I had made all the effort and missed out on my coffee was AWOL second week in a row.

Colour me unhappy.
