I draw while drinking some tea. A man that reached the forties some time ago arrives to the table right next to me. A woman more or less of the same age was waiting for him while drinking mineral water. None of them are beautiful but it's clear that they take so much care of themselves. Their bodies, clothes and attitudes reveal that both spend many time at the gym. He sits down and orders another mineral water. They do not know so much of each other and make many questions, it's obviously their first appointment.
I feel a little embarrassed for hearing this conversation but they speak very loud.
Their talk never leaves vitamin complexes, crunches series, proteins and carbohydrates but slowly gets warmer. Some laughter appear. It's never been frozen but the temperature is definitely rising. Of course without dropping fat indexes and anaerobic exercises. Suddenly, they stand up and leave the bar. He puts his hand on her waist to cross the street as if he wanted to protect her. Only a few seconds, then he removes it.
I think they're on their forties and far from feeling like beating around the bush.
If I'd had watched this scene in a movie I'd had thought the screenwriter was a genius. First date: from hello to my-house-or-your-house in 20 minutes just talking about carbs.
I finish my drawing and feel that they helped me so much to do it.
And to feel this good.
(And again Joni Mitchell coming to my mind while blogging).
