So I’ve seen others do this, and now it’s time for me to endevour into the Reel (I’m so witty) Life Moments – as in moments in film that have happened to me in my life. There are a lot of them, the film “(500) Days of Summer” is a reflection, but I have an even better one! Okay, so lets dig in:
The movie: “Lost in Translation”
So, I was at the gym a week or so ago, it was at night around 11 o’clock and I have an overpriced membership at Snap Fitness which is a small gym that is open 24 hours and people generally work a few hours in the morning and a couple in the afternoon.
What happened was I got on an elliptical machine for the first time. I started going pretty fast and thought it was totally easy. So I was going ball to the wall and than I started to get pretty tired. Since it was my first time on one, I didn’t really know how to stop it. I was looking behind me, trying to time the interval of the machine and maybe jump off. I even said, “help” out loud.
I eventually slowed it down with my arms, but needless to say that when I finally got off that fucking machine, I instantly thought of Bill Murray’s travesty in “Lost in Translation”.
I’m just glad I was alone in the gym and no one was there to see the show.
