I try and have a scheduled life to avoid things like this
Me: (holding stomach) Just wanna let you know, there’s a 35-40% chance I’m going to be sick on you.
Him: What’s the margin of error?
Him: That’s still less than 50%. I’ll take my chances!
With how my schedule is involved, most days I have to eat and drink at very specific times. In the mornings, I have something at 8:30AM, again at 10AM and then not again until 3PM.
The reason for the gap is that I try to hit the gym three days a week in the middle of the day while also trying not to have something in my mouth or hand while I’m talking to clients during the other hours.
Every once in a while, I’ll have a long winded client or something that makes me miss my window. The other day, I missed it, but also already had a huge mess of bacon and eggs. So I downed it all with strong coffee and hit the gym.
Ultimately, nothing ended up happening although there were times I came close.
Vigorous exercise, the smell of dude in a sweaty gym, the heat, plus that breakfast was … ill-advised.
And I regularly work with the same guy so he, unfortunately has to deal with all my little eccentricities.
Me: Did you just buy that shirt?
Him: Yeah, I forgot to bring another clean shirt with me today and I know how you are about that kind of stuff.
Me: God, thank you.
