Excellent post. I feel exhausted just reading it. At least you are turning up to boot camp, even if there is gin spitting involved!

Boot camp: hate the plank, love watching men do press ups. Fair trade I feel!

I applaud your desire to turn the tables on your instructor and become the yeller not the yellee. But I'm worried that if you reverse the natural order of bootcamp, you'll end up with a pretty campy booty.
