At The Gym

Gym Lady: Wow! Your face is so red, did you walk here? (As she puts on a white fur hat larger than a small child)
Me: Yes. (Good thing for us both it is not some contagious red-face disease.)
Gym Lady: OMG! You look so cold, how long was the walk?
Me: Just 7 blocks. (I lied, it is 6 and the “just” makes me sound rugged. I began peeling off all the stupid layers)
Gym Lady: You are an inspiration!
Me: (hahahahahahahaha) Well I tell myself I will be happy I came once I am home and warm. (Which will be true if I stop for beer and nachos on the way home…or cake)
Gym Lady: Have a great swim.
Me: You too. (Oops, that makes no sense, she is leaving in her giant hat. Friendly people confuse me.)
