Higher than normal showing for a stair based beat down provided by YHC. This was a revisited winky, almost exactly a year apart. Q decided to throw in a little more core to break up the cardio monotony. Q was unsatisfied with the volume level of the portable speaker, could not find the dial to crank it to 11. Regardless Piper was happy to have any music at all. Conversation turned quickly to one late arriving PAX and what could have caused his tardiness. Several theories in play here but the majority are blaming it on confusion about the location of the “PP” and appropriate times to visit it. Q was extremely pleased to elicit a patented Jay-Z groan when Thunderstruck started playing. Jay-Z was excited for music on the stairs, not so much in the shelter house. Win some, lose some.
COT brought focus to those still battling illness. We hope for continued good news from Humdinger. Good to see Maestro after a short absence. Continued prayers for him and his family. Enjoy the weekend, fellas.
