Hey everyone! Well, as I said last week, I’m basically maintaining at this point, so I’m only going to post my weight if it goes up or down by more than a pound. So as long as you’re seeing that “Same!” message over on the right-hand side of your screen, you know I’m doin’ it right!
Now let’s move on to the title of my post, shall we? As I told you last week, I’ve joined a new gym, and am doing really well at going there at least 3 nonconsecutive days a week. Mostly I’m doing strength training (aka weight lifting). It’s still cool enough to do cardio (walking) outdoors, although occasionally I’ll reward myself for finishing my “Five and Done” with a few minutes on the stationary bike, assuming it’s connected to some really lavish scenic videos!
So overall I really enjoy it! However, I find myself getting really irritated at the jocks in the weight-lifting area, who seem to take a Cletus-like pride in wearing their (still-required) face masks UNDER their noses rather than over them!
I mean, I’m fully vaccinated now, and sure, I don’t really like wearing a mask. But if I’m in a business that requires it, I’ll wear it, because I want that business to stay open, and also because I’m not a maskhole!
And it’s not as though they don’t know — I mean, there are signs on the door, with pictures as well as words, and a recorded announcement that plays every half hour or so over the intercom, in between the repeated playing of “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk,” apparently a favorite of the guy who runs the front desk since I hear it every freakin’ time I go in there.
But the jocks just snicker and snort and huff and puff and blow their infected globulets all over the place. Like I said, it drives me nuts, but what can I do? I just make sure I wear MY mask properly, and you know what? It comes in real handy — I can mutter all sorts of insults and obscenities at them and they have no clue! And I have to admit, the adrenaline probably helps my workout!
So there ya go, my Old Lady Rant of the week, and who knows? Maybe it’ll be a regular feature. I *am* almost 63 now, you know, so even though I’m not yet old enough for Medicare, I do qualify for the senior discounts at most places (assuming it’s 55 and over), so I’ll take what I can get!
That’s all I got for this week! See you next time, and remember — masks are great for us passive-aggressive types!
