It’s my recent custom to exercise before the breakfast at a gym in the hotel where I’m staying.
When I entered in the gym as usual morning a woman who was exercising on a cycle machine said something to me pointing at an empty running machine.
I was so embarrassed at the words I hadn’t expected that I couldn’t catch what she said at all.
I asked her to repeat them a few times.
However I couldn’t understand them.
Finally she gave up and said “can you speak English?”
I replied “a little”.
I was so disappointed at my English ability.
I noticed later that she seemed to have tried to convey to me that she wanted to use the running machine just after the cycling machine.
