It's Official!

I'm no longer the dorkiest dork at the gym!

I don't think I've mentioned here how I survive my cardio workouts (since I hate them ever so much). I have to have my i-Pod blasting so I can't hear the crappy pop music the gym has playing, and I pedal with my eyes closed and (silently) sing along with my music, mouthing the words and bopping my head.

DORK!!!

I know, I know, nothing you could say to me could be any worse than what I've called myself after glancing in the mirror while working out, trust me!

Yesterday, however, a squawk of "BREAKIN' THE LAW!! BREAKIN' THE LAW!!!!" nearly caused me to fall off my bike.

I looked to my right, and an old dude with a bandanna 'round his bald head and earbuds in his ears was furiously pedaling the recumbent bike, bopping his head and playing the AIR DRUMS, singing the chorus of the song out loud (badly!)

I officially pass my title of dorkiest gym dork to him.

Hey, at least he redeems himself in my eyes by listening to Judas Priest, could be worse, coulda been the BeeGees...

*ROFL*

I think that would have made me fall off the bike *and* pee my pants at the same time.

I always visit the loo before working out...just for this reason! ;)

He coulda been singing "Through The Rain" by Barry Manilow! With hand gestures. Or how bout Pretty Fly For A White Guy"?

What about Copa Cabana?! I used to LOVE that song...when I was seven!
I still know all the words, too.

I know, it took me that way, too! I think I was stuck between hilarity and disbelief.

At least we don't have to wear those horrible old school gym uniforms.

Christina LMT said...

Very true, Brigid! The only requirement the gym has is closed-toed shoes and keeping your shirt on (a pity, that, with some of the guys working out there!)

Ya know, honey, I don't think anyone in a gym has any room to criticize. I'd rather see someone making the most of a workout in the way you or oober-dork JP fan do than beefed up men and women staring constantly in the mirror, high on their own armpit vapors. Ya gotta get through it somehow!
