Weird things always seem to happen to me when I exercise. In the evenings, I usually walk around my neighborhood. One time a man passed me riding a golf cart and asked me if I needed a ride. (I politely declined.) Another time, an older lady came running out of her house and insisted I unzip her dress! Apparently, she was home alone and was stuck in her dress. I
chuckled and helped her.
The strangest one has to be when I was at the gym working out a while back. I hopped on the stair stepper, because the elliptical was occupied. I was listening to my iPod, just wanting to work out and keep to myself. Apparently the dude beside me didn’t care. Through my music, I heard this big, muscular guy say something to me. I turn down my music to hear him say, “These stair steppers are tough, huh?”
I mumble something like, “Yep, sure are.”
He goes on to say, “But girl, you’re killing that stair stepper!”
He introduced himself to me, so I told him my name.
Then he said, “But I mean it’s natural to breathe heavy when you’re working out. So if you, uh, get out of breath and need mouth-to-mouth, I could help you out…”
I just started laughing. I mean, has that worked for him before?! Did a girl say to him, “Well, I’ve only known you for 3 minutes, but that sounds like a good idea!”
I stayed on the stair stepper for 3 or 4 more minutes, just to be polite, but then I moved on to another machine, laughing for the next 30 minutes as I finished my workout thinking about Mr. Mouth-to-Mouth.
