At the gym, I tend to stay focused on my routine and don’t spend much time talking (other than the occasional grunt). I had just gotten through an especially gruelling leg routine and was fighting my best to keep the contents of my stomach in check when someone starts talking to me from behind.
I turn around and it is a very striking woman starting up a conversation with me (this has never happened before ever in all the time that I’ve been going to the gym). But I am so focused on my gut that I can only hear half of what she is saying. She pauses as though waiting for some kind of response and I mutter something that I can’t even remember the context of. She gives me a puzzled look and promptly walks away. My only consolation is that it was only nonsense that came out of my mouth and not the contents of my stomach. Arrgghh!
