Marriage 401, Lecture 224: Want to see my etchings?
SH: I don't understand why women dress up to go to the gym. When I was going to a gym, I was there to work out. I got in and I got out.
Me: Maybe some women might want to meet men there.
SH: Maybe. But when I was working out, I didn't have time to socialize.
Editor's note here: SH the Engineer is highly focused on the task any time he does a task and it is almost impossible to distract him. This is good for work but not so good for anything involving me, as in, if he becomes fixated on a political issue, it is impossible - and trust me I have tried - to change the subject. There must be people who would be delighted to discuss tax policy over Sunday morning breakfast, but I am not one of them. I want to discuss tax policy with SH never.
Me: Maybe you missed your opportunity. You could have met a nice, working-out lady and married her instead of your ex. I am always telling my brother to go to Jazzercise.
SH: But that's all women!
SH: I did relax after working out by sitting in the hot tub. But there were never any women there.
Me: I'm shocked.
SH: That's when I would have wanted to talk to them. Why didn't they go to the hot tub if they wanted to meet men?
Me: I don't know. I sure can't think of anything more appealing than getting into a body of germy water, wearing almost no clothes, with a bunch of men I don't know.
