So why did I finally cave in? Three reasons:
- Everyone at my gym wears ankle socks.
- As far as body parts go, my calves aren't so bad.
- Dr. Death.
But one day I noticed that Dr. Death wasn't wearing his military boots anymore. He was wearing high-tops. Still black.
I didn't ask why he made the change. I've never had a conversation with Dr. Death. What was important was that he had MADE the change.
Dr. Death can change.
People can change.
I can change.
Rocky was right.
