Ever since my third F3 workout, Banjo has been an insistent gnat in my ear to lead a Q. I deflected his requests with a myriad of excuses—mostly that I didn’t know the lexicon, exicon, decepticon, or cadences of F3. Realizing that one of the missions of F3 is to develop and strengthen leadership, I finally succumbed to Banjo’s request—and then he didn’t even show up!
Why does the PAX always seem way more excited about the Virgin Q that the actual Virgin Q himself? I tortured myself and the M all week by practicing cadences at home: cadence with changing diapers, cadence doing dishes, and cadence in the Fartsack (if you know what I mean).
That being said, I appreciated the support from Heckling, eye-rolling, and Burt wearing one Flip Flop. Thanks for the added verbal support and cueing for cadences—-I was sketchy at best. Anyway, I had fun…hope you did too!
Banjo did have a word of advice for leading a virgin Q: “Don’t get cute, just keep it simple”. So, I decided to get cute and celebrate T.G.I.F. Danger Zone Style.
