Notice to first-time ipod owners….
I was shocked and thrilled to get a Nano for Christmas this year from My Farmer. I have been seriously into working out for the last six months, but have always said I don’t need any music. (He knows me so well. That’s just my frugality talking.)
I was so proud the first time I went to our YMCA with my new technology. The kids gave me a fancy armband so I can wear it while I run, and an itunes gift card so I could load it up. I was SO awesome, zipping all over the gym and track during my workout.
I kept turning the volume up, surprised I couldn’t hear it better…I mean, the earbuds are IN my ears, for crying out loud.
I did my running to Avril Lavigne, My abs to Snoop and also listened to some Beastie Boys, Kool & the Gang, BeeJee’s, and Cake while I lifted. Some of you are aware that some of these artists may not be approved for all audiences. All of you know that some of these artists are, well, dorky today. (I know, WTH?)
Thank you, my beloved YMCA, for keeping my membership despite my cuss-laden, disrespectful rap song where I really just love the clicking-tongue sound.
Imagine my surprise when I went back to the women’s locker room to change shoes, took my earbuds out, and heard the music BETTER than when they were in!
Note to self: Nano’s have speakers. If you have the plug inserted “most” of the way, it plays out of said speakers.
This is the one example in my blog (thus far) where close was not enough.
Realization as I was groaning and slinking out the door of the YMCA: Those guys lifting were not checking me out. They were wondering how I was not aware that I was breaking the #1 social gym rule (don’t disturb somebody else’s mojo).
My sister says there is no kindness left in the world…SHE would tell someone they were making an ass of themselves! I like to think I would, too. Would you?
