we joined a gym…

little tobin & daughter: (entering the gym… banging into the locked turnstile – maybe a sign?) hi! we’d like to sign up!
gym guy: great! what kind of membership are you 2 looking for?
little tobin & daughter: (perplexed) huh? what kind?  a regular one obviously…
little tobin: what other kind could there be?
gym guy: do you guys do jiu jitsu?
little tobin: is he joking?
daughter: yeah let’s just stick with a basic membership please.
gym guy: ok all i need you to do is fill out these forms (handing us what seems like an endless stack…)
little tobin: ok i’m already getting deterred with paperwork!
daughter: oh come on, we can sit down & fill it out. UGH did you see question #2? how much do you weigh?
little tobin:  you obviously have to lie! i’m off by 40 lbs and i feel better already.. HAHA
daughter: and question #4 – are you dieting? i wrote ‘always’…
little tobin: i put down ‘trying’ – that’s a fair assessment, can’t get mad if someone is trying…
but what’s with question #11… how far can you walk? what’s it to them? it’s none of their business.
daughter: well we are at a gym, they want to know how fit we are.
little tobin: i think that’s obvious!
daughter: fair enough… let’s just hand it in…
gym guy: (looking over our forms with no judgement it seemed…) ok ladies looks like you’re all set,
are you working out with us tonight?
little tobin & daughter: oh god no, this was plenty for one day!
