I joined a gym this week. They gave me a "free" fitness session (you know it wasn't really free, right?).
I told the trainer I sometimes had problems with Charley horses in my calves. I suppose this might be due to not drinking enough water. Technically, I drink a good bit of diet coke but I guess I need to drink REAL water. Alex (the trainer) suggested I get some more electrolytes. I asked what added electrolytes. He looked at me and said (now this is what I heard), "Fries---and get some Pedialite". I was dumbfounded. Seriously, french fries could actually become my friend???? While I daydreamed on that thought, he said, "Shelly, are you okay?" I said, "Did you really say 'fries'?" He said, "Yeah, you just got to Fry's and get the Pedialite" as he gestured out the front door to the local grocery store. BIG FAT DOWNER alert! "Oh!" I exclaimed. "I thought for sure I wasn't paying enough for this amazing gym who would suggest I eat french fries in order to be healthier!". As soon as we both stopped laughing, he said, "I forgot you weren't from here."
Happy communicating, friends!!
