Maskholes at the gym!

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!

(just started my 3rd rewatch of Arrested Development! Still funny after all these years!)

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!

(although my personal favorite is the one going through the Grand Staircase!)

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!
