The Source of That Thing Daddy’s Always Going To Say

I’ve been a bit of a gym rat, off and on, for fifteen years, and although I do just enough to keep myself sorta toned and in better shape than my chair-centric lifestyle would otherwise allow, I tend to think of my self as a, well, gym rat. Regardless of whether this is true or not.

Which is why I’ve begun to use the “And I can’t stop saying ‘bro,’ bro.” line from a recent DirecTV commercial as a personal motto.

I say it after sets at the gym. I say it as a greeting. Frankly, I find myself mumbling it to myself at other seemingly random times.

As an added benefit, when I’m mumbling this to myself at the gym, nobody asks if he or she can work in between my sets.

Also, as a side note, in written communications, I’ve generally used the more Californian “brah” spelling.
