“I worked out with a dumbell yesterday. I feel vigorous!” –Frank to Estelle, in Seinfeld


“You know what I’d do if I were you?” he said, after I had thanked him for a gift he’d given me for Christmas last year and we were talking about how and where I was going to use it.


“I’d put up a pull-up bar in the basement. Then you could just workout right here at home.”

“Yeeeeaaahhhhhh! Then whenever y’all come over, we can just workout in the basement.”


I purchased the pull-up bar shortly after he passed away, but it sat there unassembled for months. I finally managed to put it up a few weeks ago. It’s pretty awesome. It’s just a pull-up bar, but I have a certain reverence for it.
