Treadmill - The life and times of this gym equipment

A mechanised grey Fitkit FT200 Series Motorized Treadmill was gazing at me. I wondered why, till I realised that I was in a sport shop with glass walls, admiring my own smart reflection! The previous day, I had arrived at this place from a sports factory where I had been manufactured.

One morning, a lady with twinkling eyes came up to me. Her name was Hazel, and she seemed to be impressed by how I was compact and affordable. She purchased me!

 

When I reached Hazel’s home, I was put in a fair-sized room. Every morning, Hazel would clean me fondly. Then, she would walk on me delicately. It was a tranquil and uneventful life, but little did I know I had spoken too soon!

One evening, Hazel’s sister had decided to come for dinner with her twins- Pamela and Penelope. When they finished dinner, they started exploring the house. When they reached my room, a grin spread over their faces.

After unfolding me, they switched me on and started walking on me both together at once!

To my horror, the speed dial was full ! What was coming next was no secret.

Oh! It was such a comic sight- both of them lying on the ground like a sack of potatoes, clutching each other. It was the best laugh I had in ages. Though  neither of them were injured, their mother gave them a piece of her mind! Hazel never let anything like that happen again.

Now, I am very old, but I am still kept in the same old room and Hazel still uses me as before. I am content with my life and I couldn’t wish for a better one.
