Friend: Can you do pushups?
Me: Hell no. I start up, go down, and once I get past a certain point, collapse on the floor.
Friend: Me too. Except, I lower myself gracefully to the floor.
Me: Hate pushups.
Friend: There can be benefits, though. Occasionally I’ll tell my husband that, yeah, I can totally do ten pushups, because even if I can’t, there is nothing to lose and plenty to gain.
Friend: The last time I did that, I went over by the couch, because that’s usually where the carpet is. I started to do a pushup, and I found a pacifier under the cushions that I’d lost a few months ago!
Friend: Granted, I could just look without doing the pushups.
