True as True
Yesterday, during my hydrotherapy pool class, we were using equipment while exercising.
The instructor (a lovely woman) called out in a delightful British accent, ”Is everyone happy with the size of their balls?”
(Yes, we were using balls.)
A brief hushed silence before the impossible-to-muffle snorts and snickers emerged.
There is one man in the class. Of course, we all glanced his way.
What a good sport – beet red but looked ready to bust a gut.
The instructor was oblivious. In fact, she went on to say, “Be careful with this next exercise. I don’t want anyone doing mischief to their bodies.”
More snorts and snickers. The over age sixty section snorted loudest.
(And, no, I am not part of that section…the age range of the class is twenty to seventy-five.)
I never said we were mature. I just gave an age range.
The exercises were great. The laughter was a bonus.
(And by the way, everyone was quite happy with the size of their balls.)
Have a great weekend!
