As a note- I wrote this post while I listened to Thin Lizzy’s song “The Boys Are Back In Town” except I totally sang “The Bros are back” instead. Because I’m hilarious.
Yesterday, I had another encounter with the “bros”, I was waiting at a cross walk when two guys walked up behind me and I was able to overhear (because I am scandalously nosy) their conversation.
Bro 1: I killed my triceps at the gym yesterday bro. Killed. Them.
Bro 2: Bro- you need to focus more on using your own body weight to tone up- it’s, like, better than free weights.
Bro 1: I feel ya. That’s solid advice bro.
Bro 2: What do you listen to when you work out?
Bro 1: Obvs (I swear he really said that) Metallica bro. They get me so amped. I’m just like “Let’s do this thing!” when I listen to them.
Bro 2: Me too dude. Me too. It’s like, I could fight a war when I listen to them!
At this point, we were able to safely cross the street and their conversation faded. I wanted to tell them that I frequently listen to showtunes and Beyonce when I work-out and that I’ve found both to be very motivating but I wasn’t sure how well received that suggestion would be. Although, I can’t imagine anything better amping you up for a fight then listening to “Cool” from West Side Story. But, um, why should working out make you want to fight? I think they might be doing it wrong.
