Guilt Trip


So I'm settled in on the beach, having just polished off a nice hot dog for lunch. Out of the corner of my eye, I see two women walk up carrying . . . barbells?


How clever! I think. They are going to use those barbells to weigh down the edges of their beach blanket! A little unusual, but I get it.


Then an hour-long regimen of calisthenics began. Here's some leg lifts:



Don't forget the abs work, ladies:






Me? I'm gonna have another hot dog.

Bitches.

I'm with you in the hot dog club.

Elizabeth said...

Have a couple of hot dogs for me, too, would ya?

Tell those ladies to go get a room at the gym if they have to carry on like that in public!

mindy said...

They obviously have no life. Now, I suggest you top that hot dog off with some ice cream. Have fun!

Carol said...

Hope you washed em down with a nice cold beer!

WTF? Barbells? Where do they think they are- Muscle Beach?

I'll have another dawg, pass the mustard.

Carol, Carol, Carol -

This is why you take a squirt gun with you. When you aim, squirt, and put it away, and then they look up, you are simply sitting there reading. Who knows what naughty child interrupted their workout???

Julie said...

I agree with everyone else; pass the hot dogs and beer!

I really like Bridget's idea the best, though ;-)

Franklin said...

Get me one, too. With extra chips.

What the hell's the point of going to the beach if you're just gonna work out? That's what gyms are for.

Are there any veggie dogs for me?

f-ing exhibitionists!

as shania twain sang "that don't impress me much."

I'll have 2 hot dogs with ice cream and wine please (no beer for me).

how is everyone's favorite pwecious fluffy bunny doing?

Here there are gangs of people who invade the beaches at dawn, doing boot camp activities. Local councils have had to restrict their activities (they are generally commercial 'get fit' companies) because the barking commands of the "sergeant major" types were waking and disturbing the residents! Not to mention that if you have a few of these groups on the same beach, people who are trying to walk or swim or just sit (ie, use the beach as nature intended) can't get access to a clear bit of sand.

Sarah said...

Huh? If I wanted a workout at the beach, I would walk, or perhaps swim. Then again, I am not completely sane, and sand upsets me more than a little. Besides, it is already too hot out there outside for that stuff.

I am at the beach for the week too. Don't pay any attention to those women. They are just a mirage from your subconscious, which is always trying to spoil the fun!
Don't forget to eat some beach fries and taffy! Enjoy your vacation.

Carol said...

Just. Wrong. Enjoy another dog with all the trimmings.

If you used a couple of hot dogs for dumbells you could eat them afterwords without all that pesky guilt.
