    Gymnastics is great! As a Large Man, gymnastics is the one hobby that has allowed me to feel some of the freedom that Regular Sized Men enjoy. In the gym, my physical eloquence becomes apparent. I swing from the Jungle Gym bars at a speed that a Normal fellow might walk at, I eject from my swing and soar as high as an Average Man hopping up a quaint stair set containing 3 steps, I hold on to the Roundabout like an Ordinary Man holds onto a job, and when I’m done, I always treat myself to going down the slide like a Standard Issue Man goes down in public esteem when standing next to me. Ciao.
