I am glad I got that off my chest.
IIRC I've met Willem-Alexander (or Bill-A as I call him). Irregardless, he's a cool dude.
So my left knee has been bugging me really badly for a month or so. It was feeling fine last week and I return to running regularly...guess what's sore again. And then last week at the boxing gym my left bicep was always cramping up as soon as I would throw a hook or jab, but never an uppercut, took a few days off, go to the gym yesterday, guess what starts cramping up again... Thankfully my left nut is the real workhorse down there, otherwise that side of my body would be a total waste.
Then, this morning, I see this dude running for the elevator so I hold the door. BIG MISTAKE.
He's like "thanks for looking out for me my man," I'm like, OK well he's at least grateful. Then he's like "Hey is that a Ralph Lauren shirt?" (It is a standard blue-striped OCBD from BB) I say "no its from BB." Hope that's the end of the convo. "Weird, it looks just like this one I have from Ralph Lauren." At this point I immediately am standing next to the door for a quick escape on my floor (still two floors away, mind you). He continues: "Or Ralph Lau*REN*, depending which em*PHASIS* you want to put on the *SYLAB*le." I was two feet off before he was halfway done and could continue to hear him down the hall. I also never acknowledged him as I got off. Oh well, at least I am listening to "The Nutcracker." (It may be slightly out of season now, but irregardless, I like the music).
