On the last day of 2011 my wife experienced something she wasn’t expecting or used to having.
Saturday night was our fifth workout and it was the third time we’ve done the Fire 30 session.
Toward the end of the 30-minute class, just after one of the its 60-second “Fire Drills,” I noticed Tammy getting closer to me.
Tammy: Quick, look!! Look what I’m doing!!
She was pointing to her face but I didn’t see anything.
Me: What? Is it twitching or something?
Tammy: No! Look, before it goes away.
Me: Oh, I see it.
“It” was a bead of sweat that had started to roll down Tammy’s face and she was so happy to have “it.”
Tammy: I haven’t a sweat roll in years.
I’m the complete opposite. I can sweat standing still and often do. But Tammy was in unfamiliar territory and she was definitely proud of her “accomplishment.”
Tammy: I’m a stinker, not a sweater.
A few minutes later she was both.
Tammy: Oh man, I stink. I think I forgot to put on deodorant today.
She ran a quick smell test to double-check.
Tammy: Hmmm… It’s not as bad as I thought it would be.
I really can’t remember the last time I’ve seen her sweat, but I have a feeling I’ll be seeing it a lot more in 2012. I just gotta make sure we’re stocked up on deodorant.
