I have a gym membership to Fitness Connection in my neighborhood. Friday morning I went to the Silver Sneakers (senior citizen) water aerobics class by myself. I was supposed to go with my friend, but she didn’t show up. I recently had major surgery (a tummy tuck due to a hernia) and am just recovering enough to start exercising. I thought the old people water class would be the best way to start. I met a bunch of grandmas there and everyone was very nice to me in spite of my purple hair and extensive tattoo collection. One little old lady told me that she would adopt me as her grand kid because her own grand kids weren’t as cool as me! After the regular class some of the women asked if I wanted to stay and do a bit more working out and then play pool volleyball. I had nothing else to do so I said yes. First it was normal isometric exercising but then they were like okay time to do 100 kegals. And I made a face or said what or something because then they explained to me what kegal exercises were (oh you just squeeze like your holding in your pee, really it’s easy, they told me) even though I already knew.

So I said fuck it and did some kegals with my new grandma friends. Might as well work out my vagina too. Then we played volleyball and I went home. I told my husband the story, and he thought I was joking. When I told him I was serious, he said that it was the weirdest story he has ever heard, so I thought I would share.
