We always do Birthday burpees for our young athletes at my youth classes to help the birthday child feel special. They get to count down and even the coaches partake.
Well yesterday we had a lively group and after the celebratory burpees one of them said:
"Man, if we had to do burpees for my Mom's birthday, it would take all day"
It was the funniest conversation that took off from there. I asked how old they thought I was... They all shouted out numbers:
"22, 27, 25, 31". No one guessed me to be over 33, but almost all of them had a twenty number.
When I told them that I was 41, their jaws dropped. Wish I had a camera pointed at their faces. It was just perfect. There was silence for a moment and then one child screamed out:
"Please don't make us do burpees for your Birthday"
