Tonight, at gym #1 (shitty, neighborhood gym), I wrapped up my workout and was packing up my junk to head out when, "On Top of the World" by The Carpenters started piping in through the gym stereo.

Everyone shared a chuckle.

It got louder and louder.

People grew annoyed.

It stayed that volume for the duration of the song as gym members grew surly and impatient. Soon, they wished to be on top of someone's skull with a crowbar.

As I exited though, and the song wound down to it's final measures, smiles grew on everyones' faces that I looked into.

As I climbed into my car, I whistled a familiar tune through my teeth.

I decided that I like this song.
