Do any of you forget to wear your wedding rings? I do about 4-5 days a week. I'm allergic to the soap in the bathrooms at work, and well, I still use the soap at work. Usually, I purell my hands after I use the soap, but with all the sickness going around, there is no Purell around the office (if I don't go back to my desk). Yes, I know Purell can make you more sick, but it also prevents my hands from looking like they have been in a chemical burn and feel like they have been bitten by 1000 mosquitoes, so, I go with the Purell.
So anyway, I typically don't wear my wedding rings on Tuesdays-Fridays, as my hands start to get irritated. I really never noticed that I didn't do this before last week.

Now, it is the gym...you know I don't talk to people. I don't really look at people (I look at the ground). So how did I recognize him? He has black socks and Blue and Green Sauconys on.
So, when he told me I'm getting faster, I glanced at his shoes. I said, "Thank you." It's a compliment, so you know I was blushing. He asked me if I'd like to go get a beer or something. I was still holding the cleaner in my left hand. Because I had been sick, I hadn't been to work, so guess what was on my hand. My wedding rings (I have 2) and engagement ring. I looked at my hand. He looked at my hand. He got red, and asked if the rings were new. I felt so bad, like I had been leading this guy on. I giggled and said, "No, they are almost 10 years old. I feel really bad. I'm sorry." I quickly grabbed the paper towel and rushed back to the treadmill. When I put the stuff back/in the trash, the guy was gone.
I told D about it when I got home. He laughed. He probably laughed more at the fact I felt like I had led the guy on.
