Thankful for the Second Drip

I roll around with sweaty dudes and sometimes sweaty chicks on a daily basis, it is one of the gross realities of my life. I have been doing Jiu Jitsu for a decade now, so wrestling with someone bathing in their own sweat doesn’t even phase me at this point. One thing that does still gross me out is when I am playing guard and someone is leaning over trying to pass, and just then sweat drips off their hair and directly into my mouth. BAARRRRFFFF Disgusting I hope you are not reading this before dinner, if so keep reading anyways.

I love me some Chipotle, not too many better after training meals. 1,000 Calories in one sitting, I am one of those people who have to eat constantly to avoid being super skinny. It is a big spike to my daily intake to smash a Chipotle Burrito three or four times a week. Today I started off with morning Jiu Jitsu at 9 am, fitness class 1030 am, private lesson 12 pm….1 pm I get a break until 2 pm when my next private lesson was set to arrive, Chipotle time.

Chipotle is one of those restaurants that stays busy from open to close, sure enough when I pulled up today there was a line running past the door. I jumped in line and waited, as I waited I looked to see who was working for the day and saw the burrito rapper guy radiating sweat. He was actually glowing with a sparkling surface, I think to myself, is that sanitary?

I made it! My turn to get my burrito, white rice, black beans, half steak, half chicken, hot sauce, extra cheese, and throw some lettuce on it. I realize the burrito rapper guy is also the lettuce guy, should have skipped the lettuce. I look up to see sweat fly from his brow right directly on my burrito. It’s weird my mind was racing, I was thinking gross but this happens to me in Jiu Jitsu all the time, do I want to be “that guy,” I visuallize him and his co-workers talking about the pain in the ass customers later that day…What I am thinking, that is disgusting…Oh no I have thought too long about this , three seconds of eternity has already passed, now I feel like I had my chance and I am too late. I guess I will pay for the burrito, throw it away and go get some Smoothie Cafe. Wait… I watch another sweat bead forming on his hat, it’s on the move, in slow motion it drops on my burrito, “Come on dude you are sweating all over my burrito.” Thank you second drip you saved my lunch. They made me another burrito, I fought my loss of appetite and got it down.

Looks like I need a new way to calorie load for a few weeks.

Which brings me to my next point, the sneeze guard is not for reaching over. So don’t be that guy when I can finally go back to eating Chipotle again.
