Choose Wisely – Merkin Smoke Ahead

  • Workout Date - 08/04/2016
  • Q In Charge - Whisper
  • The PAX - Squid, Crackers (2nd post), Look Out Below, Thumper, Pastrami (hate), Hulk Smash (respect), Whisper (YHC)
  • AO -

A damp rainy morning and 7 PAX ventured out into the gloom. Weather radar looked like the rain was mostly finished. YHC had (2) wenkies so the PAX got to choose between a 2.0 and a 0.0. Like the old knight in the grail chamber said, “Choose wisely.” They went with 0.0. Mumblechatter indicated they chose poorly. It was a bit of a ruse anyway since the 2.0 will come out at a future post. Here’s the playlist.
