Who’s Been Hogging All the Rib Cages, Anyway?

This morning I was stetching and leaning and breathing and doing all the things necessary when participating in a yoga/pilates type class. It’s not my favorite class at the gym, but a nice change of pace. I forgot what we were doing at the time, but the instructor said, “I need each of you to show me BOTH your rib cages now, please!”

well. a nanosecond of performance anxiety since really? i just don’t think I CAN. Her reqest seemed both weird and funny at the same time, and I was trying to stay still, not laugh, and try to remember for sure exactly what a rib cage looked like, and why in the world does she know that i have two of them when I certainly never thought so… i thought it was a ‘one rib cage per person’ sort of deal. like a heart. or a brain.

yeah, yeah. she probably meant both halves. i get what she meant, but it certainly caught me off guard.

So if you’ve taken more than your fair share of rib cages, I know a yoga/pilates instructor in Texas who wants to see them. Both. (And, like, make it snappy, because she requested it 5 hours ago.)

I can’t help but giggle at yoga classes anyway. In the one I went to they kept talking about making your breathing one with the earth and such blahbity, blah, blah. I wanted to giggle the whole time.

I have a couple to spare, but I can’t share. I’m hanging on to them for the next instructor who wants to see multiple rib cages.

Perhaps she’d like a ROLL or MUFFIN top with my ribs? I need to lose about 25 lbs. before my rib cages start showing! LOL Good job on going to the gym, too. You inspire me. :0)
