In an effort to acclimatize to the heat, I’ve been hanging out in the sauna after swimming. There was a guy in there today who I was determined to outlast. It was just him and I,…and the battle was ON! Technically, he likely didn’t know he was competing against me,…but I sort of thought he might be doing the same….the way he shifted around every once in a while – I was sure he was trying to psych me out! “Okay old man,…you think you’re so cool, like this heat is nothing to you”, I thought. I’m pretty sure he was thinking, “what a weakling, he’ll never be able to outlast me in here, I’m going to sit back and mediate, he’ll give up if I don’t show pain…”. At last I got a break! He put on his sandals – at that point I knew he was close to cratering. The end was near I thought. Until he put his head back against the wall and started relaxing again. “Okay you bugger!! I know you’re hot, now just get up and leave so I can say I won!!!”, I desperately thought. Finally after an intense moment of suspense, he made his exit. “Yesssss!!!”

There can only be one victor.

This is funny.
