Okay, here we are again.
It’s one of those days when, man, I had to wait a long time before I started recording this podcast.
Now I’m recording it, we’re going to do it, we’re going to get it done, and we’re all going to have a good time.
So buckle up.
It’s your Daily Lex time.
Your Daily Lex.
First, I want to clarify, there was some confusion.
Some people were washing dishes while they listened to this podcast.
I wanted to make sure that they understand that Sorkin, whose first episode comes out tomorrow, May 5th, that podcast is about the films of Aaron Sorkin, not about the West Wing or another Aaron Sorkin TV show.
So it’s about the films of Aaron Sorkin.
And so I just want to make sure that’s clear because I know there was some confusion amongst the dishwashers out there.
Also, if you are washing dishes while listening to podcasts, I encourage you to get a dishwasher.
You deserve a dishwasher.
And they’re more energy efficient and waste less water.
So yeah, there you go.
Anyway, I work out without a shirt on.
I thought you’d like that mental image.
So one of the perks of working from home is not having to wear a shirt or is not having to worry about people seeing you at all.
And I really, really appreciate that.
I am not a person who’s going to work out in a gym if I can avoid it.
I’ve done so at hotel gyms, but I like to work out from home and I don’t wear a shirt because why would I?
But I work out first thing in the morning with one exception.
I take my kids to the bus first.
And actually this came up on Facebook today.
Somebody was asking a pal of mine named Scott was asking what’s the deal with each kid appearing to be in the front seat of my car when I take them to the bus?
Because I often take photos of each of them if I’m taking all three to the bus, especially.
And the reality is each of them goes to the bus at a different time.
So at 627, we go with Ani and I come back and then I usually just wait in the garage in the car and at 645, 644, somewhere around there, Sierra comes out and it takes air to the bus and then I go home again.
But I have to wear a shirt for that process because those two bus rides rides to the bus, I should say, happen before the workout.
But I’ve come down without a shirt on.
So now what?
What do you do?
Uh, Liam’s bus when he takes, he often doesn’t take the bus because he goes to school early for various bands and orchestra type things.
There’s bands, there’s jazz band, there’s jazz ensemble and there’s orchestra.
So a lot of the time he’s, he’s going in early, but on the days when he doesn’t have one of those things, yeah, I’ll drive him too.
And that, that happens at a more reasonable time of 831.
Uh, but so I have to have a shirt, uh, available for myself to wear, to take the older two to the bus.
And, uh, what I have taken to doing is grabbing a shirt on Monday and pulling it on.
And then when I go to the basement to work out, I leave that shirt at the top of the basement stairs.
So then Tuesday morning, I just come down sans shirt, open the door, grab the shirt that’s waiting for me at the top stair and put that on to take the kids to the bus.
And I use that.
I wear that shirt for roughly, I don’t know, 22 minutes a day, five days.
And then Friday it comes up with me, uh, to go into my laundry hamper and thus we move on.
Um, I don’t think that other parents who are driving their kids to the bus are taking close notice of the shirt I’m wearing.
They might be, I’m not noticing what they’re wearing, but often I’m wearing, you know, like a workout style shirts or Peloton logo and blazing shirts.
And those are fine.
But there’s one shirt that for whatever reason, sometimes ends up in that rotation of shirts that I’ll wear just to take my kids to the bus, uh, that, uh, my sister-in-law and brother-in-law gave to me years ago when the movie, the dictator came out and that movie has some line in it.
Haters going to hate, haters going to ain’t, ain’t, ain’t, ain’t.
I don’t know why that lines in that movie.
I’m pretty sure that’s the movie, the dictator.
Uh, but they got me a bright orange, orange, but the pink side of orange shirt that says that message, haters going to hate, ain’t, ain’t, ain’t.
Uh, and sometimes that shirt for whatever reason is my morning, take you to the bus shirt.
And, uh, the color is so noteworthy and I would say hideous that if people did notice it, I wonder, Hey, do they notice that I’m wearing the same shirt every day?
And do they think about it?
My guess is no, they don’t notice.
And if they did notice, they wouldn’t think about it.
And if they thought about it, they wouldn’t think much of it.
They think, Oh, that’s his pajama shirt or that’s his taking my kids at the bus.
That’s his workout shirt.
I don’t know what they think.
I don’t even care what they think.
I’m curious what they think.
I think that’s different from caring because I don’t mind what they think, but I am curious.
I’ll admit that.
Um, but yeah, it’s, you know, in many places it’s no shirt, no shoes, no service.
Uh, but here at my basement, the gym, it’s a no shirt.
But you do have to put on shoes because whether I’m using the treadmill or the bike, you got to put on shoes and the bike has special shoes.
It’s the whole thing.
Anyway, I hope you’ve had a wonderful Thursday, uh, 4th of May be with you and I’ll talk to you soon.
