More (Dirty) Pool Talk
I LOVE MY HYDROTHERAPY CLASS! Not only for the health and fitness benefits but for the great laughs.
In a previous post I related a tale of our class exercising with balls.
We recently used “noodles” in the pool. Our lovely sweet female instructor (whose British accent I adore) noted that THE ONE MALE in the class that day was struggling to stay afloat.
“Are you alright, Jerry?” she inquired. (Name changed to protect the innocent.)
“Not really,” Jerry replied. “I think I have a soggy noodle.”
Smiles and smirks from the female contingent. We will pounce on any opportunity to behave like silly twits. To our credit, we refrained from outright laughter. Poor guy – how did he end up the only one in the class with a soggy noodle??? (Ha!)
Instructor: “Not to worry - we can always provide firm noodles in this class.”
Well, that did it. Our amusement became audible – although still somewhat restrained. The instructor was oblivious. Jerry was catching on….
The instructor continued. “No one should have to work with a water-logged noodle. And if anyone has a kink in their noodle, let me know.”
All efforts at maintaining a (minimal) level of maturity – shot to hell. Out loud laughter ensued as we all checked for kinky noodles…
At this point, Jerry was crimson with embarrassment. Our instructor finally (sort of) caught on and was blushing.
Balls and noodles, people – they make for some damn fine exercise classes!
(And, yes, Jerry ended up with a brand new noodle. Lucky guy.)
