I go to a gym.
It is a typical gym. Free weights and Nautilus machines filling the spacious floor. Annoying people grunting everywhere.
Yesterday, I was doing what I normally do at the beginning of a workout, which is to stretch in a corner of the gym.
Briefly, in the corner of my eye, I caught sight of a guy.
I immediately concluded from how he was dressed and looked that I didn’t like him. It was a snap judgment, taking less than a fraction of a second. But something about him rubbed me the wrong way.
Then I realized something else.
I had caught sight of myself in the mirror.
Me had bothered me.
Now I feel like I should apologize.
But I’m not sure I’m in the mood to hear it.
