Ack, Where have I been?!

I was dismayed when I noticed by beau not blogging any more, but now it's me! Is this really so wrong? If I'm participating more fully in LIFE, I would say it's just to the good. But perhaps the loss of valuable self-reflection, composition and creativity time is to the bad. I guess I won't make any promises, especially as I'm attempting to create a daily entry (that is again, EVERY DAY!) on my professional blog, but here's to going at it again.

Gym Rats

I was leaving the gym a couple days ago thinking "gym rats" with some lip curl. Lip curl, being a universal sign of disgust, surprised me at myself. My thoughts went something like this:

Gym rats - ugh.
Whoa, what's with the disgust?
Disgust is just the start of intolerance...oooh.
Wait, I used to be a gym rat ... well, okay, I used to go to the gym a whole lot more.
Wow, calling someone a gym rat means I certainly wouldn't want to do that.
How self-limiting name-calling is!

This whole self-conversation was very revealing to me. Basically, I came up with the idea that calling anybody a name is bad. Guess I could have learned that in kindergarten.
