I made Garrett do yoga with me tonight.

I need to set the scene for you.

My husband is the ultimate hunk-asaurus. He’s just a built, beautiful, big ole bear of a man. He’s full of energy and is literally always moving. Even when relaxing, he’s moving, i.e. biting his nails, shaking his legs, tapping his toes – the man cannot sit still.

Lately he’s been talking about needing to stretch more. I capitalized on this opportunity by suggesting an activity I can beat him at – YOGA!!! Marriage is fun. Anyways, we’re all set. We’re on our mats (the carpet) and our minds are right. I turn the video on and the nice little woman calls us sweet little muffins or something and he bursts into a giggle fit and threatens to quit. I pull him back in, though, and we’re rolling. We’re in mountain pose and he starts bouncing. I’m all “stop moving & breathe!” and he is all “I can’t I love mountain pose!!!!” Happy baby pose is also a crowd favorite. I’m thinking this could be our new thing when all of a sudden, the toots start to roll in. My bubble of zen has popped.

We finish the session and he’s like, “wow yeah I think I just found my chi.” He doesn’t know what that means and still cannot pronounce namaste.
