|Why Kenji and I are asses

Innertube Basketball season started tonight. We won! (well, the other team didn't show... so we scrimmaged against ourselves)|
Hadn't seen eli in awhile, much less without a shirt on. I said, "Eli, you're running 5 miles a day lately? Gettin' a little chubby there... what's up with that?" He's like, "Oh, it's all muscle underneith." I laughed.
Later I felt a little bad for giving him crap. I mean, I know it's temporary. He's also been a stick, and he runs around fire fightin' in forests all summer, so he's all buff from that, but it's still an ass thing to say. I blame kailani for cooking too much for him!
Anyway, that's bad enough. But then as I'm telling Kenji how I felt bad about that on the way to the car he says, "Oh really? haha. ... I told him that too. In the locker room I said, 'Hey Chubbie!'".
We both felt really bad after that.
Sorry Eli!!!!!! :PPppPPpp
We know you'll work it off! :-)
Innertube basketball? I can only imagine. Is this an American thing?
I've never seen it played, but it doesn't take much to imagine it. innertubes and a pool. yeah.
yo brad, is it "underneath" or "underneith". Perhaps I should consult a dictionary before correcting the grammar nazi, hmm.
Maybe he was mocking eli's speech.

I know I'd out run, out lift and out hike you both at the same time, so no hard feelings :-)
Part of your observation is right. It's January, 3 full months beyond summer, 3 full months of being nearly sedentary. When you go from working your ass of every day, to sitting on your ass everyday, you'll notice a change in your body(at least I do, some people will never change). There's no doubt that I've got three months of hibernation waiting to be burnt off.
The other part. When I said "Oh it's the muscle underneith(and yes, notice the mistake in my verbal spelling, good job for picking up on that :-)" half of me was kidding around, in the other half there was some truth. Last summer, for probably the fist time in my life, I built a noteable amount of muscle mass in my torso and upper body. I doubt that I have any more body fat on me now than I did last year at this time. It's just that this year there's something occupying last year's hiding place for it.
It didn't really phase me much when you and kenji commented on my physique..just thought to myself "::sigh:: whatever, it'll be a different story in a month or two, always is." So, I wouldn't feel too bad about it, I don't. I'm not sitting here crying to myself(of course maybe I'm still in the denial stage and the tears come later :-).
As for the running, it's just started. It'll surely take a little time before it starts to pay off. I have only just begun the 4 months of conditioning. And, If you don't get your ass out there and start running soon the tides will swiftly be turned.
See ya next week.

Re: Shiiiiit Bitches!
If I could out-lift ya, out-run ya, and out-hike ya, could I call ya chubbie?? :) This is purely hypothetical, I can't run or hike worth a damn.

Re: Shiiiiit Bitches!
Heh...I guess so. You can probalby outlift me, you'd have to beat me at 2 out of 3 though for the privelages :-)
