just a typical Tuesday evening

Setting: Our house, watching The Biggest Loser

M: I have a stronger core than you.
G: You’re crazy; there’s no way.
M: I’m just stating facts.
G: I’ve been working with a personal trainer for 5 months now – I have a stronger core.
M: That doesn’t matter. I’ve always had a stronger core.
G: This is so frustrating. I wish there was a way I could prove I have a stronger core.
{2 minutes passes in silence}
G: I’ve got it. Can you do this? {G drops to the floor, does a type of crunch I hadn’t tried before, and said this was the true test}
M: Of course. We do those all the time in bootcamp. (we don’t) Nice try. We can do a crunch off at the next commercial. I can do those way longer than you.
G: Fine.
{next episode break}
M: I need to run to the restroom quick.
{I pee, flush, and while the flushing occurs drop down on the bathroom floor to verify I can do this type of crunch. I can. SUCCESS. Victory is mine. I return to the living room}
M: I’m ready. Crunch off time?
G: I’m over it. You have a stronger core than I do.
{I smugly sit on the couch the rest of the evening… basking in victory}
