Bigger Biceps

I did a triathlon a couple of weeks ago, and I recently got an email saying "Your Photos Are Ready." You see, professional photographers take pictures at some races, and then sell them after the race. In the email was a link, straight to my photos.

Of course, I clicked on the link. There were two thumbnail pics. In one, I was coming out of the water in my wetsuit, and in the other I was running toward the finish line. I clicked each in turn to zoom in.

The finish line photo looked about normal for me, but I was very struck by the wetsuit photo. I was especially struck by how big my arm muscles looked. Wow, I thought, I must have been really pumped from swimming! I decided to buy the photo.

But there was a problem with the photo. My face was turned away, almost, from the camera.

For some reason my attention turned to the wetsuit brand emblem. Then it dawned on me. That wasn't the wetsuit I had been wearing!

Now I understood the bigger biceps. They were some other guy's!

Rhyme of the Day:

My muscles were pumped right after the swim,
But not as pumped as the arms on him!

Here are "my" 2 pictures. Note that my race number is 220. Note also, that on his swim cap, and on his bulging arm, is a number that looks a lot like 220, but is probably 226.
