R.I.P. Ab ball.

Yes, in less then 24 hours I managed to tear a gigantic hole in my ab ball thanks to my freaking pants. Note to self. When using ab ball at the gym you wear running pants. When using ab ball as a chair you must be conscious of which articles of clothing rub against LARGE PLASTIC INFLATIBLE.

I was on the phone with my friend Julie while doing the bouncy ab ball thing. There was a loud farting sound as I got a bit too enthusiastic with my stomach crunches (yes I was doing crunches while on the phone) and slid off the ball. While wearing cordorouy pants. And the pants have metal buttons on the back pockets causing a loud farting sound asĀ  I slid.

Bless Julie she didn’t say anything and I had to actually mute the phone until I stopped laughing. Large tear = RIP ab ball #1. I went to Target and bought #2 but I haven’t inflated it yet. At this rate it’s going to be more expensive then my running shoe habit.

    Oh no! Well, lesson learned and at least you were on the phone with a good friend and not a potential employer/date/etc.

    Jeannie, that’s an excellent point.

    Caitlin, apparently I beat you to it.

    And Julie, that’s what I love about you, although I really wish I’d been able to tell you on the phone. I can’t believe I popped it in less then 24 hours. OMG.
