Saying Hello at the Gym

One thing I will never get used to … saying hi to someone as they are naked in the locker  room. Why, oh ye gods of politeness, why? I mean, Spaniards answer the phone with “What?” and “Tell me.” Is that polite? I don’t think it would go over so well in Indiana. So why must I awkwardly greet the sweaty man with BO on the elliptical or the old lady with a bright orange headband huffing and puffing on the treadmill at 2.5 mph? Tell me that. Please.

By the way, have you heard of the nudist gym in Spain? Oh those Spaniards …

  1. Hahahaha! I saw a news piece on the nudist gym the other day. They were interviewing an old naked man as he rode the stationary bike. Poor, poor bike seat.

    PS – can we talk about the unabashed nudity in the gym locker-rooms? There seems to be no limit to the personal grooming that can be done while naked in the locker-room. Highly disturbing.

  2. OK…this made me rethink hitting my gym on Monday when it finally opens after months of construction. I hope the French aren’t as polite as the Spanish are on the treadmill!

  3. Wow, I just cannot express how horrified I am at the idea of a nudist gym………
    In more pleasant news, it’s great to find another auxiliar’s blog. And thanks for linking to me :)
