I've seen a few things at the gym lately that made me giggle & some that haven't. Firstly was a young dude who'd forgotten his sneakers & was attempting to jog in his business shoes. Like these ones I kept thinking he was going to trip over the ends of them & face plant the tready. Next was the dude on the stationary bike with about 1/2" of his crack exposed. I kept wanting to drop an ice cube there. Last week I overhead a couple of girls chatting before class who obviously hadn't seen each other for a while; one commented to the other "what's happened to your tooth?" The other replied, "well, I got sick of waiting for a diamond, so I bought myself one & put it on my tooth". Kind of a WTF moment! I get body adornment, but I don't think she achieved the desired result if she had to explain!.
What wasn't amusing at all was the pathetic excuse of an instructor who when asked about his recent weight loss, explained that he used to be really fat - "just like you" to one of the girls who I do pump with. I wasn't there, but heard about it from both herself & another friend who was there at the time. That particular instructor no longer works at my gym. The girl in question went home & cried for 2 days straight, then decided she was going to do something about the situation & make a complaint. As she put it, she's pretty resilient, but imagine what could have happened had this insensitive prick said this to a someone with much poorer self esteem. She feels bad that he lost his job, but reality is, he shouldn't be working in the health or fitness industry with that kind of attitude. What a complete tosser.
It was Plumbing Boy's birthday on the weekend. We went out for dinner on Saturday night with a couple of friends; one of whom was keen to party on after the restaurant, so we ended up going to see my cousins band. PB has never seen them play before - not from any lack of encouragement on my part!!!! PB is pretty much only into Blues music & doesn't have time for anything else (see me rolling my eyes!). The gig was really good & although not PB's style he did quite get into it; as did our friends. I was rockin' out at the front dancing with my cousin's mates. I think my neck has only just recovered today! I did tell my cuz that if I'm too embarrassing, to tell me & I'll stand up the back!!!!
They are having a single launch next month. If you are in Melbourne, come along! I'll be (one of) the chick(s) rocking out at the front of the stage! You can listen to their single here.
