Backlog: 9/16-9/20

If I recall correctly, there was no chalk in the gym this week. There are few things that frustrate me more than not having chalk in a weightroom. . . I mean, don’t get me wrong, there are tons of things in the weightroom that frustrate me (see: 95% of the people in the weightroom), but not having chalk is like taking a shower without soap, brushing your teeth without toothpaste, or thinking that single-ply toilet paper is a good idea. Superimpose this on me having the sweatiest palms ever, and you have a recipe for disaster.
