Gym Exchange

This isn't the first time it's happened and it won't be the last, but it's fresh, so I thought I'd rehash while I remember.

Here is an exchange that I had with a woman today two treadmills over....

Me: *Cough*

Her: (Trying to get my attention by waving her hand in my direction)


Me: (Finally give in and look over) Yes?

Her: Do you have that cold or flu that's going around?

Me: Nope.

Her: But you're coughing!

Me: I know.

Her: And you don't have it? (Said very skeptically)

Me: No, I have a lung disease.

Her: So you don't have the flu?

Me: No, but I do have Cystic Fibrosis.

Her: Oh, ok, oh.

Me: (Put headphone back in and continue to watch SportsCenter) *Cough*

Her: (Grabs towel, stops treadmill and leaves)

....and life goes on. 



3 people had something to say...:

LOL. But maybe she went home and googled cystic fibrosis!

This made me laugh out loud! No joke. I can totally completely relate.

Yeah. Probably didn't know what CF was. You would think most ppl would know by now??
