I feel so validated from all the comments – you guys are my new list of favorite people.
And also, I am probably never going to exercise again, or lift anything else that’s heavy, ever. I woke up today and could barely move, a condition I attribute not only to yesterday’s early-morning exertions but also to the dragging around of hundreds of pounds of camera equipment. It’s all well and good to try and hang with the big guys, proving yourself as an equal by lifting Pelican cases that could hold several small children, but seriously, I need to stop doing that. I was lugging our tripod up a winding set of stairs and I almost threw up on myself from the cumulative strain.
And like, vomit + the crew van = no fun at all.
