Bench pressing and Mustard don't mix. I'm on the coffee table with the bar in motion. He decides the best way to get my attention is to wrap his front legs around my elbow and dig in with his claws. He didn't have time to get the claws into my skin before I screamed, tried to shake the cat off, and ended up slamming my arm down on the edge of the coffee table. The arm that's holding up half of a 30-pound bar that has now shifted with the center of gravity.
Good news is I didn't drop the bar onto the floor or me. Bad new is in a few days the helacious bruise I have will show up.
There is a new renaissance festival in Louisiana! Check out the Acadiana Medieval Faire at: http://www.acadianafaire.org/
