Moleskin or what the Q learned today:

  1. You give a bunch of kids 36 cups, you get back 36 cups. You give a bunch of grown men 36 cups, you get back 28.
  2. The men of F3 will run for 200+ miles in the mountains, ruck with heavy objects, carry pallets through a river and get up before the rooster to drive 30 miles and claim a flag, get muddy, BUT innocent, tame bushes are “sharp and can hurt.”
  3. That “chowderized” is not just a term for verbal instructions, but can be used for bad listening. “Q – Can you use that in a sentence?” “Sure, my instructions were perfectly clear, I suppose you chowderized them inside you head.”
  4. The 9 were either tired or know absolutely nothing about pop culture due to NO mention of Pink Floyd or MJs fifth studio recorded album while utilizing the Wall.
  5. Gump has a complete bike shop in his garage, so see him for any repairs.
  6. The Nanny has a new, shiny clipboard and he is taking Q orders.
  7. Kool-Aid is spending his last day in his 40s.
  8. Finally, the men of F3 really push themselves (and each other) and I’m thankful, but I already knew that.

    @Pavarotti. Great Q and great BB. A veteran Q doing his thang. For the record….unlike some others I returned all the cups I was issued….running through holly bushes will never be a good idea, and thanks to the 5 guys who signed up to Q an upcoming workout.

    Nice work @Pavarotti… haven’t gotten to enjoy the cup workout before. Solid work all around. How many refuseniks did we have on the bushes? 2 or 3 with Nanny leading the charge #notachance. Feeling it in the legs this afternoon, always a good sign of a proper beatdown. Also, that trash can jump was just pure silliness.
