Yes, I do spend more time talking in the weight room than I do actually lifting weights.
I think I might have run an elderly lady off today when I was telling a friend about my take-home exam in history. I could not help but chuckle when I talked about southerners fears over communism and hippies during the civil rights period. I guess she didn't think it too funny for me to be so casual about it. I suppose if some current protest march in the United States was linked to al-Qaeda, we would all be quite concerned.
In any case, after taking to my friend and giving a gag gift to another (a wooden sign I found at a thrift store that said, "I stopped running because my thighs rubbed together so much, my underwear caught on fire."), I got started on my routine.
