As I’ve mentioned before, Kevin and I have been trying to hit up the gym more frequently these days. The other night as we were getting in from the gym and I was doing all my post-gym stretching, Kevin said what I really thought was the strangest thing. He said he feels bad, because he always finds himself watching people at the gym and then stops when he realizes “oh crap, I wouldn’t want people staring at me while I’m working out.” My response, of course, was that “I’m always watching people at the gym and I don’t feel bad at all, because I assume that they’re watching me too at some point.”
That’s normal, right? I mean, I think I might be on the extreme side of things where I honestly can’t mind my own business and am watching people and eavesdropping all the time! And when I think about it, Kevin is most likely on the exact opposite end of the spectrum, as it seems to fit with a lot of his other personality traits that he just wouldn’t care about what other people were doing.
I honestly am just always watching people – I can’t help myself! Malls, ball games (it’s especially bad here, because I find it nearly impossible to pay attention to the game), work, the beach and, of course, the gym. How could I not?
So anyway, do you engage in people watching or am I really that bizarre?
