Yellow is the Color of Friendship

I met a couple of new people at the gym today. I had to go to the restroom a couple of songs into Zumba. On my way to the restroom, I saw this woman sitting by herself outside the studio. I asked her to come join us inside. She said she was waiting for her friends. They were all supposed to do the Zumba class together.

After I came back from the restroom, she was still there waiting. I said, “You’re already here. Might as well do Zumba with us.” I think she might have been a little intimidated by the class, but I managed to convince her to come inside. “Pick a spot anywhere,” I told her. I always try to get new people to go toward the front of the room. As most new people do, she picked the far back corner. It’s hard to see Amie from all the way back there there, since she’s so tiny, so that wouldn’t have been my first choice. It seemed like she was keeping up okay, though.

At the end of the class I went back there to formally introduce myself and also ask her how she liked it. Her name is Brandy and she said it was okay and that it was different. I reassured her that it gets really fun after a few times. She introduced me to her friend Kim, who had been in the studio the entire time. Brandy explained that I was the one who talked her into coming inside. Kim said that she was in the room the entire time. Brandy said she was waiting outside because she didn’t see her inside the studio and thought she hadn’t arrived yet. Anyway, I encouraged them both to come back next Sunday.

I told Brian what happened on the way home and that I was glad that I talked to that woman. I was thinking that, had I not talked to that woman, she would have probably waited a few more minutes and then eventually left. Then, the next day, her friend would have been like, “What happened to you? Why didn’t you come to Zumba?” And she would have been like, “What do you mean? I was there and waited for you. You never showed.” And she would have missed out on a really great class. In small way, I felt like I helped someone out today and I met two new people. I really hope they come back next week. 🙂

P.S. I think I’m pretty friendly normally, but I may have been more so today because I felt like I had to live up to the color of my shirt. Yellow is such a happy color. Whenever I’m in yellow, I feel compelled to spread the joy. LOL.
