Adam is telling them about the first time he had soul food over at the Boyd brothers place, Adam says he went and has a massage last night and BB says that Adam seemed lighter yesterday.
Adam cites some of the weird and interesting stuff he’s done with his trainer Kelly over the years, he had him bring his massage table and yoga ball at the other warehouse on noon over the weekend so they could work on some focus and spiritual stuff, carve out two hours to go get his mind right.
Adam is commenting on his hyper vigilance and setting up a cruel and ironic twist it seems, Adam says he arrived at the shop on Sunday and ran into a large man who claimed to be an editor hired by Nate to come in on the weekend.
Adam shares his startled reaction to the guy opening the door right as he was trying to unlock it from the other side.
Adam shares how the guy was trying to leave about 8 minutes into their stretching exercises, AV Ed then arrived with a 20+ ft. extension ladder he’s decided to return, he was doing the super nice “I’ll take it back” and Adam was trying to stress how they were trying to “do” something in private, hilarious.
Adam is back to the berthing exercise and how it was interrupted now the 3rd time by some rattling noise, it was the editor guy returning from lunch.
Adam and Kelly only had about 30 minutes’ left at this point, Adam didn’t want to even explain to him what was up, he says that Tom showed up.
Adam picked Sunday and the middle of the day at that shop which is usually a ghost town, Adam then scheduled a massage after the session to try and relax.

Adam is back to his massage, Gina keeps saying rub and tug, Adam says it’s a regular place and he says every massage he has gotten ends with them telling him to drink a lot of water.
Adam is going on about how much work they put into massaging someone, the last person that needs water is the massage recipient, the person gaining the massage needs to hydrate, maybe some Pedialtye.
Adam is confused as he was asked about the deep tissue vs. the relaxation massage, he says it ends up with him getting what feels like an apricot being worked out of his back through his asshole, he wanted the easy Swedish relaxation type, it ends up with Freddie Blassie working his neck.
BB says he went to a Chinese Reflexology place, Adam is joking with BB about trying to man up and not admit to pain from a sensitive area.

Adam talks about comedians being seen as worthless, it’s hard to imagine them doing much else.
Adam has a list of the winners from the past 30 years, none of them are comedians in the race’s 40-year history, he says it would have to be Frankie Muniz or Jason Bateman when picking the funniest winner.
Adam jokes about Wanda Sykes and her performance in one of his celebrity races, he says he passed her on the first lap and further lists some past winners and Gina asks if that makes Adam feel better about succeeding, he says no because he doesn’t get counted as a comedian.
