FRIDAY! YEE HAW!
I am betting most of you are a whole lot cooler (and younger) than me, so you probably don't know this song by Loverboy, which was featured on this album:
BAHAHAH! Gotta love how subtle the rock music was in the 80's.
The other day I got up super early and told myself to get my fat ass in gear and go for a long walk. I put on shorts and a tee and socks, but could not find my tennis shoes. Nowhere to be found! ARGH! But I grabbed some Pumas that I had never worn before, grabbed my Ipod and sunglasses, snickered and selected LOVERBOY from my Ipod to get me moving (and reminded myself NOT to sing aloud, as my singing voice combined with my selection in music would be VERY EMBARRASSING if others were to overhear it), and hit the streets before I could think of an excuse to abort the mission.
I was about a third of the way into my walk when I noticed my feet were killing me. Awful AWFUL blisters were forming on the back of my ankles. You know, the area where there is zero padding. I kept pounding the pavement trying to ignore the pain and yelling at myself to stop being a Sensitive Sally, and to just keep moving. But the blood and pain were just getting worse. Wah!!! By then I was half way done, and I did NOT want to give up. I weighed my options. I didn't want to ask a stranger to carry me (SURE! Carry me a mile or two!) or give me a ride home, no phone and no money limited my options, and I didn't want my blisters to get worse. So I took off my shoes and walked the rest of the way in my socks. So if you saw an IDIOT walking around in her socks carrying her shoes in her hands, that was ME.
ANYWHOO, hope you GET LUCKY this weekend! In one way or another! :)
