The other day I went to the gym.
And the only time I can really go is during “rush hour,” and I’m not just talking about traffic.
Anyone that works out knows that all gyms in general have at least two rush hours a day.
Rush hour one usually starts around 4:45 to 7:00 a.m. (before work)—and after work—this is generally around 4:00 to 6:30 p.m. or so.
Anyways, I try to avoid these times because you usually have to wait to use a machine or a piece of equipment.
But sometimes you just don’t have a choice.
I’ll usually show up when it starts to die down.
Or right in the middle of it.
When I go to the gym, I just want to do what I got to do and get out.
I’m not there to socialize.
And although there’s nothing wrong with that…it’s not for me.
I see working out as my time to myself.
No make up, no heels, nothing.
Just me and my iPod jammin’ away.
So the other day I walk into the locker room…and nothing out of the norm.
Then I notice what seemed to be black hair dye all over one of the sinks.
“Is that hair dye?”
I didn’t think nothing of it as I proceeded to walk further back to where the lockers where.
I’m hanging up my jacket and close the locker…
And out of nowhere I see this lady sitting on the bench about 5 feet from where I was.
She must’ve been using the bathroom or something when I walked in because she came out of nowhere.
Her hair was full of black hair dye…
And she was wearing nothing but a pair of sandals and a SEE THROUGH smock!
She was just sitting there—ever so quaintly on the bench.
And get this…
She was reading a news paper with one leg on top of the other.
I’m not saying she was sitting with her legs crossed…
Her right ankle was resting on top her left knee.
If you can’t visualize it…then try it out.
Keep in mind she was naked.
And to top it off it was rush hour.
She had a pleasant little smile on her face as if she didn’t have a care in the world.
And trust me…she didn’t.
Personally, I’m all for self expression.
And I’m not trying to “judge.”
I wonder how her hair came out.
Have you ever been in somewhat of an awkward situation?
I’d love to hear about it.
Please don’t hesitate to tell me what’s On Ur Mind.
