A man I met at the gym mentioned that his daughter is a freshman at Ohio State University and plays on the womens lacrosse team. Since my youngest son, Josh, also attended Ohio State and was on the mens lacrosse team, we have a common bond.
When I saw him in the locker room last week I asked Jim how his daughter was doing. He told me that his daughter loves the school and loves being on the team. The only problem is that she doesn’t like her roommate. I smiled at that and said, “My wife has the same complaint.”
I’ve been working with a trainer at the gym and feel like I’ve made a lot of progress. I was thrilled the other day when my trainer told me that he can see a real difference in my strength and conditioning. As soon as I got home that night, I told Gail what the trainer had said.
Then I got a little carried away. I asked Gail if she’d like to look at my biceps after dinner. Always supportive, Gail replied, “Sure, just let me get my reading glasses.”
