Earlier than the butt crack of dawn used to be the perfect time to go to the gym. In a lot of ways, it still is. It's much quieter then and there are a lot less people. There are a lot of sweaty guys lifting weights and grunting loudly, but they are pretty ignorable (and believe me, they are far more interested in themselves than anything I'm doing). Also, and probably my favorite, parking is no issue at 4:45am. And the girl working the desk is not a size negative zero. Which is always a bonus.
There is person who comes in at the same time as me now and this person doesn't like me.
I can't quite figure out why. I always say "Good morning" to this individual and smile. Maybe it's NOT a good morning in their world because they always scowl at me when I say it. And they never say it back. EVER.
So I pretty much ignore this person, which is my M.O. for all things unpleasant in my life.
But today? The person sneezed
And I have this thing. I can't let someone sneeze and not say anything. I don't think their soul is going to escape or anything, but for some reason I am compelled to say SOMETHING.
So I said, "God bless you!"
And they scowled (big shock) and said, "I don't believe in God!"
And instead of just not saying anything, which is what I should probably do in most situations, I said, "Well then. Satan bless you!"
I'm probably going to get kicked out of the gym y'all. It won't be good.
