Things Aren't What They Seem
My tae kwon do school is above a pet shop and a nail salon. I have to climb 2 flights of stairs to get to it.
Yesterday, on my way up the stairs I walked behind a huge, burly guy carrying a gym bag.
He was ENORMOUS. His biceps bulged out of his shirt. His legs were the size of tree trunks. He had tattooes all over his arms.
He looked like Hulk Hogan.
I assumed he was a martial arts student I hadn't seen before.
But he surprised me by turning at the landing and going into the nail salon. I heard the twittering of a dozen Korean women giggling when he went in through the door.
An hour later, when I was leaving my class, I saw him coming out of the nail salon.
His nails were buffed to a clear, shiny finish. #
