Some oopsies I have made or others have made towards me this past week:
Not enough stretching: Tuesday last week I went to the gym with my sister, and after my typical upper-body workout, I decided to do some leg exercises since I hadn’t specifically exercised them in awhile. Usually I do leg press and calf raises, and leave the rest of the leg muscles to running, but since I had not done any running for a long time either, I thought I might work extra hard today to jump start myself back into shape. So I find the calf raise machine and do a ladder; starting weight of 50 pounds, increments of 20 pounds up to 130 pounds, 20 reps a set. I thought, no problem; I did the same thing the first time I went to the gym my freshman year, except with an end weight of something less than 130. So I stretched for about 10 seconds and did the calf raises.
The next day, my legs were sore (duh). The day after, they were more sore, but I could still walk fine. Then late in the afternoon, my calves started getting worse and it became painful to walk normally (but I still went to the gym that day haha). By night time I couldn’t stand up straight and iced my legs until I went to sleep. The third day after (Friday), I could barely get up to pee and had to keep my knees bent or else I’d collapse. I took the day off cause I couldn’t walk unless my knees were bent and my back was bent forward like I was 100 years old. I was kinda worried that they wouldn’t get any better by the time I had to fly out to LA the next day, but thank God after church on Saturday they started getting better (especially since I had to do a lot of standing around at the airport thanks to JetBlue’s superb service and allotment of workers at the check-in counters). Now my legs are almost better and I’m very glad; my sister hasn’t been able to not laugh about me being overambitious and weak.
I am my sister’s brother: Back in high school, one of my friends was looking for me after an orchestra concert and ran into my sister, whom she had never seen nor met. She saw a resemblance between my sister and me and so she asked her, “Are you Hain-Lee’s mom?” Well, a similar mistake was made at my cousin’s wedding in Malibu. I was walking with my sister as she was introducing me to some of her friends that she had not seen in some time. One of them saw her and said, “Oh Whei it’s so good to see you again.” As I lift the complimentary champaign to my lips, she gestures towards me and says, “And this must be your fiance!”
I forgot to submit my timesheet: Self explanatory.
Some random things:
– I ate at a japanese restaurant today with my sisters, my brother in law, and my brother in law’s dad (um…what is that called? Uncle in law? Or just uncle?). I could’ve sworn the hostess was a girl who goes to Cornell and lives in Becker House. She looked exactly like her. But I’m not so sure if she’s the same person because I’m pretty sure she saw me as she took all of us to our table and would’ve said something about the fact that I was wearing a Cornell T-shirt, but she didn’t. But I still think she is!
– And also, fart/poop jokes never get old. You know it’s true.
