While at Target today, I was perusing the aisles and stumbled upon a new version of the Ab Roller!
The Ab Roller and I have a history. My parents bought one for me in high school. That was their subtle way of telling me to lose weight. That and they hid food from me in the washing machine. I did enjoy using it. I would do a couple hundred a day. I was still completely out of shape, but I could do a crunch like no other.
Then came the day we had to do fitness tests in high school. My PE class had mostly very athletic dudes, and then a couple of us nerdy kids They beat us at everything. It's a little unreasonable to have a 5'4 Asian girl playing basketball with a 6'5 tall dude. I was the kid who got an A because I tried really hard.
But when it came to the crunch test, I killed everybody. I know I did over 60 in 1 minute. I know I had the highest in the class. I know my PE teacher thought my partner and I did it wrong and made me do it over again while he watched. I repeated my results, and my teacher was completely speechless. I shrugged and said, "We have an Ab Roller at home."
I enjoy surprising people that way. I'm not offended. I wouldn't have guessed that I would've been the best cruncher in my class, either. Everybody was rather dumbfounded. It was awesomely hilarious.
Anyways, I want one! Even though it'll be difficult to hide when I have people over. My only problem is...it's a pretty big box, and I don't really want to get on the bus with the big box that says AB ROLLER across it. Maybe I can find it cheaper online....
