Many many months ago the ManOfTheHouse invested in his health - he bought one of those BowFlex home gyms... I say "his" health because try as he might I have not been able to convince myself that I enjoy this exercise.
Flash-forward to yesterday when sweet little M is helping me put away some of the many videos and DVDs that inevitably get left out during the weekend of fun and partying that happens at our house. (yeah, go ahead and read that really sarcastically - it's okay)
M finds the "Xtreme Instructional Video" by bowflex (not because it was watched - but let's not get started on THAT gripe) and asks me "why is this guy a puffy head"
Puffy head? Oh - well NOW I get it, now that I've seen the picture (note: this is NOT the same picture... but M assures me that this guy is also Mr. Puffy Head)
I (being the intelligent and all-knowing mother that I am) explain the process of weight lifting and the building of muscles... I think I lost her somewhere during the discussion of Amino acids - but she's pretty bright so she caught up. (yes, I'm kidding)
The kicker: then the sweet and innocent child asks why M.O.T.H. is not "puffy" - at which point the conversation was abandoned because I had to hysterically laugh while e-mailing M.O.T.H. to tell him that his daughter thinks he's a flabby wimp.
but for the record - he's as manly as can be... he's just got a biker's body instead of a steroid users' body - besides, those "puffy" muscles are really nauseating me...
