What is it with creepy dudes at the gym? Creepy dudes who stare at you the entire time you are on the treadmill. The Problem is - even though I wanted to move - a) I didn't want to let him get to me AND b) I was afraid I might offend him or hurt his feelings!!!!! WHAT IS THAT? Do you have any idea how uncomfortable it is to run while someone stares at you? It's not right.
I remember my mom saying that when she and my dad used to argue he would sit and stare at her. I told her to paint eyes on her eyelids and stare back - but in actuality fall asleep like that. Sure fire way to win a staring contest. Perhaps I could employ this technique somehow with creepy man. But if I close my eyes on the treadmill, I WILL fall off.
Having gone away to consult my mother about the matter --- I return with a new plan, next time I will pretend to pick my nose. It will either, a) give him a reason to stare, or b) make him look away because it's yucky. PERFECT. (then I can just tell everyone else I was just dusting like Babs!)
