It was three o’clock in the early, spring morning when Paul was stocking cigarettes at the front counter of his small convenience store, located near the downtown area of Washington, D.C. He had just received several new boxes to unpack, and since it was so early in the morning, and there were no customers, he decided to go ahead and do some stocking of the shelves.
I was just thrilled to death when I got the job working for Hunks-N-Lunks Gym. I would be surrounded by big muscled guys for about forty hours per week, watching them working out and sweating as I would look around and check them into the gym. Oh, joy!! It was like a dream-come-true for me. Little did I know that one kid in the gym would change my life during my first week there.
