A Special Edition: February 20th, Mark It On Your Calendar

I live in a small town. We support a YMCA. I befriended one of the janitors who works there. She fed me a gym secret.

I’m going to share . . .

We’ve all done it, made a resolution.

January 1st, we put our resolution into action. Feeling the enthusiasm, joy, trepidation of a kindergartener on the first day of school.

January 22nd hits. Some of us fell off the resolution joy ride, while others continue strong.

The staff at your local gym are marking off the days on their calendar. That special day when the last of the irresolute “resolutioners” fall off the resolution joy ride.

It’s the same day every year.

There are only 28 days left until that special day when the gym staff can take a coffee break. And the janitors no longer pull double duty cleaning the locker rooms.

February 19th.

Let’s mess with their heads. Let’s make it a strong finish. Let’s all show up on the 20th!

To finish is to win.



For those of you who make it to February 20th, how about a little Queen with “We Are The Champions.” Freddie Mercury’s choice of outfit. . . well, it was the transition from the seventies to the eighties.


About Fannie Cranium

Writing since she could first hold a pen, Tracy Perkins formed her alter ego, "Fannie Cranium" at the suggestion of her husband. Tracy understands smiling makes people wonder what she’s been up to.

    I don’t think I can make it 2/20. That’s my birthday, and I will be celebrating with gluttony!

    Ooh, that’s ALSO a very important day in the literary world, aka the PNWA Literary Contest! If we get ‘er done and enter the contest by Feb 20, we should run around the block and holler! Killing two birds with one stone…

    I’m with you, Fannie–exercise is year-round thing. Funny about Feb 20. Will look for the gym parking lot to be easier to get into after that date. And we ARE the champions 🙂 Especially you what with those tris and all. Saw Freddie at Kerbey’s place the other day. Seems you both have excellent taste.

    • Liz–you have to let me know if you notice a difference in the parking lot of the gym on 2/20. I want to know if it’s more than a regional phenomena here.

      Funny you should mention the whole Kerbey vibe. We’ve done it on a couple of posts lately. Cracks me up when the “stars” align like that. 🙂

    Such an unfortunate outfit. I’m scarred for life


    • Didn’t mean to scar you with Freddie’s outfit! I don’t know if you remember the Billy Blank’s Tae Bo videos, but he had a similar take on fashion as Freddie for the video. LOL

      Now there’s a future BoFN post in the making. . .
