There is something sinister going on at Gold's Gym. Not to worry, it isn't just any Gold's Gym--it isn't even my Gold's Gym--it is a nearby Gold's Gym that has gone over to the dark side.
Trust me, we're talking wicked voodoo magic here. It's the only possible explanation for the events that have occurred in this particular gym location...or at least the only one I'm willing to admit.
Regular readers of my blog may already be aware of another *ahem* mishap I've had on a gym excursions before. It may have involved a treadmill and a Cardio Cinema--lethal combination. This is part of my proof that something dark is happening here because it was at the SAME GYM LOCATION! *buh buh buum!*
Let me tell you of the unfortunate incident that occurred on Friday, February 26th, 2010.
It was a cold, wet day. I was in a different part of town than I usually roam. A place known in local circles as A.F. I went about my routine as usual. I swam my laps, then stretched in the hot tub and sauna--exactly as I do several times a week in my own gym to no ill effect. Nothing out of the ordinary occurred. After a few minutes in the steam room, I grabbed my towel and walked into the locker room.
As usual, I'd forgotten which locker I had placed my bag in. I paced back and forth, trying to remember where I'd been standing, but somehow...everything seemed different. Finally, I remembered it had been locker 13. Yes, locker 13--mysterious, no? That was when it hit me...
I was surrounded by men.
Men in towels, with jaws hanging wide open.
Yes, I'd been walking around in the men's locker room for over a minute.
Naturally, I handled the situation with grace and dignity. I threw my towel over my head, screamed, "Aaahhh, I'm sorry, I'm so sorry!" and ran out of the locker room.
As I stood, panting by the pool, I couldn't help but hear the outburst of laughter from the men who'd witnessed my unfortunate incident.
Now you've seen the evidence, you decide. Were there sinister machinations at work? Or was I just silly enough not to realize that the locker rooms were swapped from their locations at my normal gym?
One word of warning. Your responses may or may not determine whether I give you a cookie.
