I was sorting through some files the other day and came across a letter I sent the ‘Woman’ magazine back in 1990. This is what I wrote:
I was recently visiting a health club manager on business when the telephone rang. As his secretary was out for the moment he answered the call through his ‘hands free’ extension.
At the other end of the line was a lady who wanted to enroll for one of their afternoon exercise classes. All the formalities were completed and the lady was told to come along at the appropriate time wearing something loose.
Over the box came a sad voice saying: ‘If I had something loose to wear I wouldn’t need to enroll in your class’. Then the line went dead.
I wonder if the lady ever resolved her situation.
