    and I see this black guy kind of watching in the mirror. After my set, he comes over to me

    bg: yo dog, wus dat work out - ya shoulder blades?
    me: no... lats, midback, biceps, anterior delts...
    bg: *blank look*
    me: *point to my lats* lats...
    bg: *blank look* aight den

    I just turned around with the :ugh: face when I realized that he was trying to figure out why anyone would work their back. Sometimes I really hate Golds...

    What does the colour of his skin have to do with the story? :dunno:

    Would you have said "this white guy" if he was white?

    Well if it would have been a white guy..I bet he would have been wearing an oversized crooked hat and baggy pants.

    I would have. But skin color doesn't matter, an ignorant bitch is an ignorant bitch.

    pointing out the color of his skin does two things:

    1) It makes the story more descriptive, so one can better picture the actual event in their mind's eye.

    2) It helps to explain this particular individual's manner of speaking (sociolect).

    Last night:

    95 x 5
    115 x 5
    135 x 5
    155 x 5
    175 x 3

    should have been more, but last night was a shitty workout overall :( No energy, didn't have my MP3 player, was a lot later than I normally workout, and wasn't at my normal gym. I'm sure I can think of more if I'm not whining enough already.
