What’s In Your Gym Bag
In my last post, I mentioned that my shower gel slowly leaked all over the contents of my gym bag. I spent half an hour or more wiping off the contents of the bag and then unsuccessfully, the inside of the bag. It’s a good thing that the gel has an appealing scent because it’s going to be there forever. I must invent a gym bag that has removable insides for easy washing.
I hadn’t cleaned out the bag in a while, so it was a good opportunity to do so. Apparently Mary Poppins is missing her special bag, the one she can magically pull lamps and birdcages from, because it is now sitting in my kitchen in the form of a black lululemon gym bag. I was stunned at the amount of stuff I pulled out of this bag, which is no bigger than an extra-large size women’s purse.
Who cares about what’s in a gym bag? I do. I’m intrigued by the most random of things. I adore the “My Stuff” column in Vanity Fair magazine, in which they poll people of international stature on what products are in their purses, desks, closets, etc. Here is what I found in mine:
-2 beach cover-ups
-a guitar pick
-Eucalyptus oil (I use it in the steam room. Put a few drops on a hand towel and bring it into the steam room. DON’T absent-mindedly wipe your face with the towel. I can assure you, from experience, that it is not a pleasant experience.)
-Zum Bum Bidet In A Bottle (Don’t ask. Just get yourself some.)
-3 bottles of sunscreen/moisturizer
-brand new pair of unused Yankz! laces
-my bike gloves
-my iShuffle and headphones
-unused timing chip belt
-4 swim caps (Apparently I need choices.)
-swimmer’s ear drops
-my ymca card
– 2 bottles of body lotion from the Marriott hotel bathroom
-7 ponytail holders, clips, etc.
-a water bottle
-a roll of Tums
-a spiritual vitamin from the YMCA (little strips of paper with verses and inspirational quotes typed on them.)
-make-up products with questionable expiration dates
-garage door opener
-two pairs of goggles that are not mine
