I put my back out at the gym some time ago so I was talking to my son Scott on the telephone later, and he wanted to know what happened – so I told him I was lifting huge weights over my head. He said, “sure dad”, he didn’t believe me because we always tease each other so he said he was going to phone his mom and find out what really happened.

The truth was, I was in a hurry and over-extended my reach using a water bottle to wipe down a machine and threw my back out. How embarrassing is that a – water bottle.
