This morning I was at the gym trying to bust out my workout because I have such a busy day today. My workout wasn't going to so well because my lower back has been jacked up lately and I'm not too sure why.
So, I'm standing there between sets when I see someone walking toward me on the track. We smile at each other and he says, "What's up, Sarah?"
All I could respond was, "I'm good...strange place to run into you." This guy used to be a bar tender and not just any bartender, but the bartender that used to serve me the best drinks in the world. I probably spent a good 5 years sitting at his bar.
We both laughed at how things have changed over the last few years since he quit tending bar and I quit wasting my weekends sitting at the bar.
He made the comment that he had seen me at the gym a few times, but I'm never alone and he doesn't just want to walk up and interrupt. He said it was strange to see me outside of the bar and during day light hours. I thought it was funny too.
It is odd how things change and how people change. We were both pretty wild. Heck, most of the people around us were, but now, he's married, he has kids, he has a good job. It was nice to run into him because it helped me realize that you can't stay in the bar forever.
He made a quick comment that I looked like I had lost a lot of weight. I said, "Yea, I gave up my party girl ways. I'm trying to make some changes, but don't worry, I still have a foul mouth and vulgar sense of humor!"
It's days like these that I'm glad I run into people at the gym. Usually I have my headphones on and I don't want anyone to talk to me at all. It was nice seeing someone else who is ready to grow up and be an adult.
