Big People Are Scary

July 23, 2012

Okay I know, I know, I know I’m not THAT small yet but wow do I sorta miss being intimidating. Not in the bullying sort of sense, that was never really my thing but in the “when I walk through the mall, people get outta my way” sense. Today was the first time I’ve been in a big crowd sorta situation being almost a hundred pounds lighter. I have to say, it was quite an experience for me.  Now I’ve never been a big fan of crowds but when I was more imposing, it wasn’t as much of a problem because folks gave me my space, I felt very disoriented and very crowded in. People were just walking over me and shoving me, you would’ve thought I wasn’t there. My wife got the biggest kick out of it because, having been small all her life, this is what she experiences every day. I’m far from small even at this point but there is definitely a difference, I’m not sure I’m looking forward to the next 50 pounds leaving, I might just get stepped on.


As an aside, anyone know of a good kickboxing gym around Northern Summit county in Ohio or possibly around Independence, Ohio? I can’t seem to find a gym that offers it.
