In all of my excitement about slaying the dragon (AKA the elliptical machine) I forgot to tell you the CRAZY thing I saw at the gym last night! If you've read some of my earliest blogs, then you know I've seen some very unusual things at the gym. For example, I once saw a woman working out on the treadmill wearing dress clothes and slip on shoes. She looked like she was ready for church instead of the gym. I didn't know whether to pray or burst out singing a hymnal. Then there was the time I saw a poor soul working out on the elliptical machine wearing a trench coat and crocks. I knew at any minute she was going to flash open her trench coat, pull out her semi automatic water gun and start spraying us all down. But last night I saw something that topped it all! I witnessed a man wearing a full gas mask with a white cape on his head. My first thought was, "Oh look at what THE TORTURE CHAMBER (Elliptical machine) has driven this man to...sheer madness!!!" Then I thought, "Maybe he's just going to EXTREME MEASURES to avoid getting the flu." My mind wondered if he were an alien from some other planet studying the human world working out. I also considered maybe we were under attack at the gym and that he might be in cahoots with the woman hiding her semi automatic water gun under her trench coat...remember she too was working out on THE BEAST! What is it about the elliptical machine? I think it makes all of us a little CRAZY!!! Whatever his reasoning, I have to say it made for good entertainment! IT LEFT ME WONDERING, "WHO IS THAT MASKED MAN???"
