I live an unusual life. Or maybe it's usual and I just notice the unusual. Here are two examples:
From the YMCA: I was about to leave the gym after wailing on my pecs and lats and a friend who is like 6' 5" giant of a man came walking by. I pulled off my headphones to chat with him.
After about 45 seconds I realized I left my music on loud enough that he could hear the song playing...Mmm Bop by Hanson. Shortly thereafter, a look shot across his face, lasting for about 2 seconds.
It was that uncomfortable realization that he knew what was playing on my headphones but neither of us were spiritually advanced enough to address the truth. After a few discombobulated moments, I did one of those awkward put my fist out to get pounds and he put his open palm up for a high five.
I palmed his fist and we both exited the conversation with a sure to be unspoken secret that he knows I listen to Hanson while working out and I know he knows.
From the Bus: I sat next to someone on the bus who took up about a seat and a half. I didn't realize it until I sat down.
The net result was I was side riding with one butt cheek gripping to the seat for dear life. The net result: The seated butt cheek started to cramp and the unseated butt cheek fell asleep.
However...I was too co-dependent to get up because I didn't want to make the person next to me feel bad (there were other seats open).
So, in the interest of not hurting someone's feelings I got off the bus and for five minutes walked around like a combination of JJ from Good Times and John Cleese from the Ministry of Silly Walks.
Thank you God for giving me the life I've got. #timlife
