Next-Day Muscle Soreness (Or: The Best Kind of Exercise)

So yesterday around 11pm I started noticing my abs were sore, like I had done a bunch of sit-ups or something. Then I remembered the "or something". I got laid the day before! 
 When you have sex, you move around in ways you don't, usually, and you can get a pretty good work-out. 
 The previous couple of days, I'd written in my "Diary of a renaissance negresse" that I had "no sex drive". Well, I can attest, this dame certainly still does, and what a relief that is!
 The slight bummer, though, is that in The Olden Days, like when I was in high school, I'd feel the aftereffects (soreness) of a workout the day after. A few years ago I noticed it now takes 2. I'm hoping this has more to do with the fact that I don't exercise often enough than to do with aging. 
 The only way to test that theory is to get busy movin'.
 Hey, I'm just now noticing my pecs are feelin' a little sore, too. Whoo-hoo! I wonder what next I'll discover got some movery on that lovely day.
 Glad to be back 'pon the horse o' love.
 May you, too, enjoy the company of another, as often as it pleases thyselves to do so!
