Monkey Butt to the Rescue

To say my body was sore from the day's hike is a huge understatement.  I was limping along like Festus from Gunsmoke for most of the evening.  I can withstand your typical aches and pains, but after hiking 16.6 miles in the hot August heat my gluteus maximus was toast.  Luckily there was a CVS close by and Bruce told me about a wonderful new miracle drug for an occasion such as this... Monkey Butt!
Never heard of it, but if it helps ease the pain... I'll try anything.  Bruce and I grab a few other necessities and gingerly make our way to the check out counter.  I try my best not to make eye contact with the lady that is working behind the counter this evening... "Welcome to CVS...did you fellas find everything okay?"  Her questions abruptly stop as she proceeds to scan our purchases for the evening... six pack of beer, a bag of cheese doodles, some Vaseline and a big bottle of Monkey Butt.  I'm tempted to give the young lady an explanation but I'm sure she has heard it all before. 
We grabbed some Chinese takeout and headed back to the room to get rested up for the next day's hike... we were wore out.
