i don’t even know where to start. let me preface this by saying, when you’ve logged as many hours at the gym as i have, i’ve seen just about everything. and i mean everything:
i could go on – i really could. but i digress so as to share with you my recent gym sighting this weekend. all i can tell you is that all that went through my head when i saw this was a quick flash back to that episode of friends (yes i’m obsessed) where phoebe is inhabited by the soul of an old jewish woman who, at the lesbian wedding, exclaims loudly “now i’ve seen everything!”.
so i’m happily doing my circuits and i see this guy lurking about and he’s in a golf-like polo shirt and khaki shorts with a leather belt. a bit fancy for the gym but i’ve seen this before. then he has on leather loafers and these white socks of course pulled half-way up his hairy white calves. he’s watching me do circuits and you know the poor guy doesn’t probably know what to do – but again, i just applaud him for being there! then i notice he’s holding a starbucks (which i’m equally as obsessed with). he’s sippin’ it, sauntering about. then, he sidles up to the dumbbell rack and picks up a 10-lb weight with his right hand, with the starbucks still firmly gripped in his left hand and while sipping his coffee he proceeds to lift his right hand overhead and do tricep extensions. yes. sipping coffee all the while working his right tricep overhead. i think my jaw dropped to the floor. oh but it gets better. so he apparently exhausted the right arm and in order to equally fatigue the left arm he takes his coffee and sits it in the dumbbell rack while he moves the weight to his left hand and then proceeds to (yes) pick up the coffee with his now free hand. repeat dumbbell tricep extension overhead with a super-set of starbucks. heaven forbid he set down his beloved cup o’ joe for a few mere seconds to knock out a set! this man then proceeded with this little routine for dumbbell curls, and yes, bent over dumbbell rows too.
now – anybody that knows me knows that i love my starbucks. probably unusually so. but after seeing that display of love for the ‘bucks, i must say that i might have to relinquish my self-given title of “starbucks obsessed”. that takes it to a whole new level. so now i can confidently say that “now, i’ve seen everything (at the gym).”
