Tonight I was back at the gym working on my fitness. Sewing isn't the only area that I've been slack on lately so it feels good to try and get into a new routine. I'm sorry to disappoint anyone but this post isn't about mastering Zumba or promoting the benefits of stretching. No, this post goes much deeper. Brace yourselves because I'm about to delve into the inner sanctum of every gym - the women's locker room.
Let's be frank, is it only me or is the gym locker room on par with the twilight zone? I have never experienced stranger sights or encountered more bizarre people than when I've been in a locker room.Let me just clarify that I belong to your typical, over-rated, chain of gym franchises - nothing too fancy but the things I've seen lately are just too over the top to keep to myself.
It first began when I saw a new sign posted next to the hairdryers. It simply read, "Hair Dryers Are To Be Used For Hair On the Head ONLY." What?? I thought to myself that this must be some kind of joke, that is until I saw some woman drying her lady bits with the hair dryer. Yes I just said 'lady bits'. This incident could only be matched by the woman who brings in family size jars of olive oil to moisturize herself, creating an oil slick and OH &S hazard around her. Wait - there is more! Recently I was getting changed and glanced over at the woman next to me who just happened to be putting on a french maid costume, complete with stilettos and fishnets. As I stood there stunned and not knowing where to look, she threw on a trench coat and walked out the door. Kinda put my little cardigan number to shame. Who knows what adventure awaits me tomorrow?
