A backhanded insult?
Last weekend, I left the gym and took the long way around to The Bookstore for coffee, I made a pit stop at the ATM at CocoWalk first. As I walked down Florida Avenue, one of the local security guards called after me and actually came running a block or so to say something. I thought it was a security issue, or maybe just to say "hello." Well, he/she (I don't want to reveal the person) asked me what I did at the gym as he/she didn't see me in there for a very long time.
He/she said that they had clocked me at about 30 minutes and then he/she said, "Don't you think you should spend more time there?" I wasn't quite sure what to say, I mean the NSA is bad enough but the locals here have to totally be worse.
I was dumbfounded and the truth is that I was leaving early to meet some friends in Wynwood for breakfast (at Zak the Baker). But I felt I needed to explain that I thought that I got my usual workout and that I didn't want to overly work out and I sort of stumbled. I then even said, "I still have the same waist size as I did in high school," which is stupid because I could have been a fattie in high school.
He/she then asked what type of workout I was doing in there -- was it free weights, cardio, what?
I got my coffee and walked to my car and passed this person again and just made a muscle gesture, you know like one of those "pump you up" poses and we laughed and I kept going. But it's strange how every little move that you make in this village is being watched by someone.
