I think I knew this already, but tonight it was really brought home to me that it is impossible to row on an ergometer when you are laughing. It is also impossible to to do push ups, sit ups, or anything with a dumb bell while laughing. In fact, you could narrowly miss dropping the dumb bell on your own head.
Why all this merriment? I somehow wound up watching an hour of Kathy Griffin's stand up routine on Bravo. I don't even like stand up. Usually the most a stand up routine gets out of me is at best a wry smile.
But you gotta love a woman comic who is ballsy enough to pull down her pants during her routine and make it funny -- and keep going for like a solid three minutes before pulling them back up.
