(I’m always amused by the number of people who can’t seem to just enjoy their workout.  They need to be entertained.  They have to be wired.  Pathetic.  But, that seems to be the new norm.  And, apparently, I’m now an anachronism.  Among the small, insect-eating, scampering mammals, yer uncle remains the defiant Allosaurus.

Today’s clue words are all tried and true.  While all the jumbles appear to be new.  For some reason, I couldn’t focus in on “blurry”.  I actually had to back into it!  The prior three . . . came to me, immediately.  The answer letter layout was a fine jumble, but with it beginning with a D and ending with an L, it wasn’t supremely challenging.

The cartoon did a nice job of conveying a gym doofus.  I think even Planet Fitness would judge him thusly.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I had to look at the fourth word, too, UR, fortunately not till my eyes got BLURRY! I kept wanting to say BURLY, or perhaps BURRLY (people in Scotland speak BURR-LY?). I’m totally with you on the *wired* gymgoers. I don’t really mind hearing music from other people’s headphones or earbuds, but it’s thoughtless and rude to *camp out* on a bench to update Facebook, catch up on Twitter, etc., while other people are standing around waiting to use that bench!

    And, they seem to feel they are entitled to do so! Young and old alike! But, when you go and start strangling them . . . all of a sudden YOU’RE THE BAD GUY! LOL! — YUR

    I’ve danced like that. When I opened the top door and a frozen chicken fell out of the overfilled freezer. :O 😀

    LOL! That reminds me of a portly fellow who used to report to me, during my banking days. His wife was always putting him on diets, but he had a secret stash of ice cream bars in the freezer. He thought he was slick, sneaking one in the dark of night while his wife slept.

    Well, one night while he was foraging around for the hidden stash of ice cream bars, WAY in the back of the freezer, he heard this kind of quick whoosh! And, before he could possibly react, a frozen six pound London Broil slid out of the freezer, and landed square on his left foot! He let out a yowl like you’d never heard, followed by a colorful stream of expletives. Of course, this woke his wife, and she had to drive him to the ER, because he was sure he had broken a bone, or two, on the top of his foot.

    I don’t remember what the outcome was, but I remember him saying his wife was half pissed off at him for waking her up, and having to take him to the hospital. AND, cheating on his diet. But, at the same time she couldn’t stop laughing at him, picturing the frozen slab of beef sliding out, and falling 5 feet, and crushing his poor bare foot.

    I still crack up every time I think of that story. But, of course NOBODY tells the story like he does! Stories like this made him a minor legend at work! Thanks for reminding me, Damid!

    Glad to be of service! I’m also reminded of a comic on TV back in 1990 or so. He said that women have the ability to turn a manly man into Curly of the Three Stooges. All the have to do is be scantily clad in bed, and when the man comes out of the bathroom, they automatically go Woo! Woo! Woo! and start running in place. When something large and frozen falls out of the freezer, I start running in place, and then start the Woo! Woo! Woo! noises as the object is rolling on the floor. 😀

    Fortunately didn’t get hung up on the jumble! It was a good one, but kinda of a breather for me. It didn’t wear my brain out!

    Oh my goodness Damid! The Three Stooges. My first husb loved them!

    I just wish I could find a normal aerobics class like I used to go too. The classes have gotten crazy and if you can’t come into one knowing what you are doing, you all but get shamed!

    I dropped a round, metal hair brush on my big toe the other day. All I could think of wash what I would have done if it was a dumbbell. It HURT, IT HURT BAD — and now my toenail is all funky.
