We Are Not That Kind Of Men’s Group

14 of the Highlands faithful ignored the rain and temperature in the 40’s to step into the gloom.  After the brief #Disclaimer, the PAX followed YHC for what was intended to be a no frills and no grass full-body downPAINment.

The Moleskin:

  1. Good numbers, great work and impressive chatter with the virtual chatter trophy shared by Chopper and Titanium – I’m sure that is not surprising
  2. The PAX loved the derkins with no recover right into the negative derkins, so future Q’s should keep that in mind
  3. Another not surprising moment of the morning – Google found a way to add a bun shaper
  4. On a related note – Chopper was uncomfortable with the thought of drawing the attention of a large group of males to the sculpting of his gluteus maximus as we are not that kind of men’s group
  5. El Guapo had a “plethora of platelets” on display at the BOM (for PAX in your 20’s who don’t get the reference and didn’t discern he was bleeding I suggest you take a couple of hours to donate some platelets at the Red Cross and ask to watch the Three Amigos movie while you wait since the only way some of you would have gone to the theater back in 1986 was in utero, hate hate)
  6. Always an honor to lead the Highland faithful – Iron Sharpens Iron (Proverbs 27:17)

    Great beatdown today Alcatraz. I found a worm in my rain soaked shoe. He was like – why are you doing this before the sun comes up? I said it was because I was emotionally head locked. He squirmed away with a look of confusion on his non-face.

    @Alcatraz – Great beatdown and BB! There was a smug look of satisfaction on your face when you noticed the red elbows of @ElGuapo in COT. #nosympathy

    I’ve been wanting to attend a #Highland bootcamp since I EHed @Parliament and @ElGuapo two weeks ago. Today was the first day I was in town to meet up with them, but when I awoke to rain and colder than expected temps I thought they might not post (mostly because I almost hit the snooze)? Boy was I wrong, those two haven’t missed a Tues, Thurs, Sat since they started! #Ahoy!

    Who knew that the rain brought out the #Respect crowd? With >25% of the pax being 50 or over today I might even go so far as to say there were a plethora of #Respects. #30somethingfartsackers

    Always great to see old buds @Parkour and @Sully! #someolderthanothers

    Lastly, I never thought I’d be saying this, but it’s great to hear the chatter of @Chopper and @Titanium back in the gloom! #loudkotters

      @Skipper, The chatter prevents me from passing out… playing in the puddles… that’s just plain fun!! Always enjoy sharing the Gloom with you… it’s good to be back!
