Many who know me are aware of how I loathe the popular music of the day. Much of it causes me actual physical pain. It is because of this that my gym has become my own personal hell. Three days a week since February, they have been piping in the same tunes over and over and over again. Today was crappy dance music day. I can almost tell which track will play next as I don’t think they bother to shuffle their playlist. Once or twice they have been known to break out and play something different, like classic rock or retro eighties. One day a month ago they even played reggae & dub tunes all morning! That was the best hour I’ve ever had at that gym and I will cherish it always. In the meantime, so long as I want to become physically fit, I will have to endure the personal hell that is my gym.
