Someone actually commented on my arm muscle today! I was picking somethng up and they squealed from across the room "OMG look at your muscles!!"
I just shrugged and threw them a bicep curl. Nope didn't actually.
I smiled demurely and said "Thanks I've been working out." Didn't actually do that either.
I blushed and muttered something and RAN outta there. Hmmm is this a normal reaction?
With the wonder that is retrospect I have come up with a thousand different ways to respond (the above are a tiny selection of these) and worst of all I have been trying to glimpse this wonder muscle in every passing window/mirror/shiny pot/stainless steel bench (the list goes on) and have been unable to actually see it myself!
Am having a think about what I might say if this happens again because it is important to be prepared.
On a side note:
Is it normal to yell "WOOHOO - you can do this!" to unsuspecting cyclists cycling up a particularly steep hill?
Is it also normal to enthusiastically congratulate children who have walked up a hill and are having a rest with their water bottles?
I'm thinking if you actually know these people it might be ok but for strangers who are "unsparked" this can come across as at the very least odd, at worst a little creepy...
Wish everyone had the spark we do!!
We can so do this!!!
Good job on walking that hill guys!!
Above all things which escaped my lips instead of just my fingertips today.
