Party Of Five

Posted in Uncategorized by Mike on February 11, 2006

Okay, there were more than five people there. I got a PM yesterday from Dan inviting me to come by for a party. I’m not much of a party person but it sounded like a good time. Besides I don’t know a whole lot of people in the area so I thought it would be nice to get out.
So I rallied the troops and with the speed of lightening (45 minutes) we rolled out the door. Met Luke who lead us over to Dan’s. Once there I got to meet his wife and some friends. A party at Dan’s shares commonalities with a lot of parties. A little beer, a movie, general carrying on.
A party at Dan’s is also a little different. The movie was thae latest offereing by Dennis Rogers (including Terminator of gripboard). Then it was down to the phone book ripping race. Dan and Luke went after it, they managed to mangle and tear at least two phone books. Dan ‘s wife and my wife managed to section out the rest of the paper making a right mess. There were grippers, kettlebells, cards ripped and finally Luke bent some heavy bars over his nose. I don’t recall the diameter but it was awesome.
It was a good time, even the nonlifters had a hoot. It also helped me realize how far I have to go and how long I have to work to before I achieve a level of strength that is truly respectable.
