So, I have finally started both my exercise classes, dance and pilates and I am loving both. Unfortunately no walking for now, I have a sore foot. But, what I want to share with you isn’t strictly about exercise, related to one of my classes though.
One of the first days I was going to pilates, I was arriving there by car, when I saw this lady walking along the same road as my gym. I HAD to look at her! Ok, I do look at people a lot, I love to check out the way they are dressed, how their hair is, what handbag they are carrying, etc. etc. But, she was something else, I tell you!!
First of all I noticed she was wearing really high heels…AND walking in them, not just got out of her car, actually walking. I believe she must live nearby, still, I couldn’t do it. Secondly I had a good look at her hair. Dyed blond, as in perfectly dyed blond, no roots showing. Made up as if she had just left the hairdresser, big curls, not one hair out of place (I guess a lot of hair spray went into that!). Third, her clothes, well cut, they fell down on her impeccably, hugging her just enough to glimpse at her body shape but not too much to make her look tarty. Very slightly over weight but not a lot, just kind of “soft” looking. Last, and surely not least, I passed her, and realised she must be at least seventy! Probably older, but I will never ask her age, not to a lady like that!!
Now, I am not saying I liked her look, even though it was not bad at all, but certainly a lot of effort went into that! Really, I find it difficult sometimes taking care of the way I am dressed, or doing my hair and make up. She must have spent an hour to look that way. She deserves a 10 for effort and another 10 for result too!!
But, the biggest surprise was when I actually saw her coming in to join the pilates class:)))))
She has been there every time since. Her hair is always flawless, her clothes too. She wears all black. Black leggings, black top; very often a nice tight little jumper with a very interesting neck line, round with an opening like a drop, which lets you get a glimpse at her breasts! Even her socks are pretty, black and just under her ankles. Of course she always has make up and a great smile. Btw, she still wears extremely high heels, she leaves the gym in those every single time. I forgot to mention she is truly quite short, even with those shoes, shorter than me barefoot ( I am average hight ).
I want to be her when I will be her age. Where do I sign up?
