Annoying Day at the Gym

Thursday, December 29, 2005

I worked out on the ole elliptical/stairstepper at the gym today. My workout started nicely as I watched the morning sportscenter. About five minutes in, my workout took a turn for the worst... (foreshadowing) An older gentleman started working out on the machine to my left. He had an anoying habit of clearning his throat about once a minute. Once a minute turned into once every 15 seconds (literally). I ignored it initally then started turning my head quickly at each "ahem". This method didn't seem to work so I stepped it up a notch to clearning my throat when he cleared his. I lasted about 7 "ahem"s in 90 seconds or so then gave up. I was so annoyed .... my ears were being assaulted. With 5 minutes of my workout left, a gentelman started working out to my right. He was an older man sporting some fashionable zubas and a tank top that had the long cut on the sides (so better to see his sagging man-breasts). He had on approximately 6.7 gallons of cheap musk. I literally felt sick to my stomach. I frequently wiped my face with my towel becuse my sweat smelled better than his cologne. I will brave the Y once again in the morning - hoping to avoid these men...
