The Rule of Exercise Equipment

Here’s a rule I’ve found to be true in 99 out of 100 cases:

If you have a piece of exercise equipment in your bedroom, whether it’s a stationary bike, a treadmill, or even an ab roller, it will wind up being a place for your clothes.

True or false for you?

Those handlebars are perfect for hanging that not-quite-dirty shirt!

This is the reason I gave up on having anything more complicated than hand weights.

To be fair, though, just about any free-standing, stationary object in a bedroom is fair game.

I thought it was just me! I found that I would leave the bench-press/pull down bar attached to the Solo-Flex because I could hang more clothes on it that way. I also have a beam scale (like in the doctor's office) in the bathroom from which I must constantly remove my wife's bathrobe (apparently she doesn't bother with the scale).

On a similar note, anything with a flat surface, such as an ironing board, becomes a surface for depositing pocketables like change, pens, papers etc.

It's madness.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
