With Truffle!

The story starts with a health club. When I moved to London I wanted to join a sports club for two reasons: staying fit and getting to know people. Being new in town, it’s usually easy to start a conversation when sharing a common interest. I became member of a club known for its posh image close to my then home (remember: always select a gym close to your residence otherwise you won’t ever go). It turned out that members of this club where one of a kind: not communicative at all. At least not to people they don’t know. But how can they know people when they don’t talk to them beforehand? It’s a dog biting it’s own tail. They even didn’t say good morning when you joined the 7am TRX class with 5 participants. On the other hand, it was quite entertaining since the restaurant was a very nice place to watch people. In London, people tend to talk very loud. They talk loud to each other and they even talk louder when they are on the phone. In public. In a bus. Virtually everywhere. It’s the kind of situation that you happen to listen to topics that you would never have come across in the past since no one would ever talk about it in public. Now, people do, at least in London.

In this health club especially in the restaurant people had the tendency to talk very loud too, and I liked it since the conversations always turned around some ridiculously expensive purchase or trip. Here’s an anecdote:

A girl from Eastern-European providence entered the lounge of my spa club, creating embarrassment for the ones that had to listen to her loud conversation with one of the waiters. Imagine a very strong accent. Do you have pasta with trrruffles? I mean with TRRRUFFLES! Yes? So, I want pasta, I mean noodles, the long ones, broad ones, without no sauce, but with lots of trrrruffles. Can you do that? But: with real TRRRUFFLES! I was wondering whether this was just a way of letting everybody know that she’s been able to afford a good deal of trrruffles or whether she intended to demonstrate her exquisite taste (truffle dishes aren’t really a speciality of the club’s chef), or was she secretly hired for some entertainment? This club does it well: they let members pay and let them entertain the others. Just by being themselves. Have to leave now, going for some trrruffles, at Harrrrrod’s…
