She's Got Legs...

So last night I decided that I wanted to take my very first sauna. It was an off night from the gym as I had gone both Saturday and Sunday, but I didn't want to get out of the habit. So what better way to relax than taking a 20 minute sauna right?

I walked into the cedar planked room and took my seat on the top row. I breathed in the hot air and tried to relax, but the rubber on my ear buds was starting to burn my flushing skin so I moved to the other end of the room and moved the lower level bench. I stretched out my legs as the door opened. In walked a very friendly looking 20 something. She smiled at me and took her seat--above and directly across from me. "Hi. Isn't this great?" She asked as she arranged her self on her towel. Still listening to my music I smiled and said yes. She kept talking so I took my buds out so that I didn't appear to be rude.

She smiled again before she took off her top and stated "I'm so jealous of your legs!"

Not to be prideful, but I've been told I have nice legs--boy if people saw them as they are in their natural state--which 90% of the time is unshaven with sweat sock rings around the ankles they may change their minds, but I digress.

I smiled again and thanked her.

She smiled back and then proceeded to tell me that no she really liked them and that they were lovely, and curvy, and had great muscle tone.

"Thanks, my husband likes them too" Is what I said as I twisted my wedding band but what I was thinking was "Uhm, ok this is a little weird..."

"You're married?" She asks but didn't wait for an answer for she gathered her things and left. Needless to say I wasn't too far behind.

Tonight I played it safe...I wore yoga pants, and a long sleeve t-shirt and stuck to the elliptical....


  1. Haha, ok, a little awkward...

  2. OMG! That's creepy. There's a lady at the gym I call NAKED LADY. She CONSTANTLY talks to me while naked....walking around. naked. She complimented me on my bra too which was just the icing on the cake. WHY are you looking at my bra?? Eyes down ladies! Women's locker rooms are strange strange places

  3. HAHAHA You'll have to remember that story on the days the ol' self-esteem is deflated. That ought to perk it right back up! :-)

  4. Ha ha ha! That is funny, and odd all at the same time. :)
