Don't judge a guy until he takes his shirt off [Oct. 17th, 2005|10:08 pm]

I usually eat one of my 6 daily meals at this Indian fast food place where the guy sometimes throws in a free sweet/candy for regular customers. I always refuse. Today we had this conversation:

Him: "Don't you like sweets?"

Me: "Actualy I don't, and besides I have to be careful with my calories."

Him: [smiles somewhat derisively]

Me: No seriously, I gotta watch what I eat. I do some bodybuilding.

Him: Yeah right. [Now with barely concealed contempt]

Me: Hey, I can leg press 300 pounds.

That wiped the smile right off his face.

Him: [totally speechless for about 5-10 seconds]

Him: [looks me up and down, up and down, but still can't get any words out.]

Him: [finally] Y-y-y-you??


Plate of rice and lentils: $3.24
Candy: $0
Watching the expression on the guy's face: priceless.

On a side note, having discovered the joys of cottage cheese and scrambled egg whites, my protein intake has now climed to well over three times my pre weight training value.

Love it. One of the people who used to be in my office was into weight training, as well. I'll have to ask him if he ever had a similar experience.
