Since my knee has been giving me trouble, I have been relegated to walking instead of running. In response to this downward spiral of activity, my body has rebelled by gaining pounds (I’ll not say how many, but it’s akin to a cute baby beluga) and my metabolism as slowed to a near snail-like pace. Nice.
Yesterday was a nice day and as I was still in vacay-mode, I set off on a walk. These are the thoughts that invaded my head during that hour- long sojourn into ass pain:
“This walking-shit sucks”
“This blows chunks. I fucking hate this”
(These first two thoughts were made in less than 1 minute into the walk)
“This is going to take me forever”
“Ugh…whose idea was this?”
“Oh I so much would rather be running like you” *longingly looks at a runner perhaps too creepily as she gives me a weird look and rushes off*
“Fuck off, I hate this shit too. Stop looking at me like I’m a 90year old grandmother”
“At least if I had a somewhat normal semblance of a dog, I could probably take her with me. Instead, I get mini-Cujo with allergies and hyper-sensitivities to anything that moves.”
“I love that damned dog”
“Maybe I should concentrate on my next great post.”
“’Great’ being the optimal word. I rock”
“I need a new job”
“One where I get paid oodles of money without leaving the comfort of my house”
“I just described everyone’s dream situation. We should all work from home. And bake cookies. And drink wine”
“I wonder if all stay-at-home and work-from-home peeps do that…bake cookies and drink wine all day. When do they do laundry or clean?”
“Hire a maid.”
“Yeah. Great plan”
“Mmmmm…wine. I need more. Hey, I didn’t drink that much on holiday.”
“That lemon-drop martini was awesome. I soo should learn how to make that mutha for DH”
“And I developed a whole new appreciation for Sangria. Should make that stuff up too.”
“Man I have a lot of drinking plans ahead of me. Sad? Or rockin’?”
“I need a good story idea for the CBC contest.”
“Hmmm…mystery? Nah. Definitely not romance…crap.”
“Yeah, you’re running, I’m walking. You’re awesome and I’m old. I’m almost over it.”
“Who am I kidding? This supremely sucks”
“I’ve decided I need more socialization with other people. Maybe I should take obedience classes like Maggie”
“Maybe there’ll be a Benny in my class too! THAT WOULD BE SO AWESOME!”
“Look, lady if you’re going to stop for me, stop. Otherwise go on into the intersection that is laden with speeding vehicles and take your life into your own hands. Become one with the road!”
“I have nothing but contempt and ire-ridden loathing…hey! I’m almost home!”
“And me just about to continue my negative shit-storming.”
“This wasn’t so bad”
“Who am I kidding?”
*walks inside porch*
“This totally blew chunks.

On the bright side, with all the shuffling along, the zombies might think you’re one of them and leave you alone.
Ok, not as reassuring as I was going for…
Ummm….yeah, but I appreciate the intention…I think. Yeah, I walked last night and felt really dumb…totally idiotic but not sure why. Hopefully, my knee will return to some semblance of normal and I can resume my normal activity of self-inflicted injurious behaviour of running. Yay me!
Not a fan of walking me self (can I ask what blows chunks means)
‘Blows chunks’ refers to vomiting….very descriptive, yet effective I think.
Now it makes sense! Cheers
We love walking … well, partially because we’re not runners.
I would enjoy walking more if I wasn’t damned unhappy about not being able to run. Ugh.
Seems like a reason to drink.
There’s ALWAYS a reason to drink, Frank. 🙂
Your mind is a fascinating place to be.
I like to think of it as a journey into the great beyond…with chocolate.
It’s a fun thing for a quick drive-past, but I don’t know whether I could take it long-term. My own sounds like two mosquitoes studying for a Jeopardy appearance. zzz zzzz zz zzzz 😆
Laughed all the way through! (but sorry about the knee!)
That’s one of the main reasons I run–in preparation for the zombie apocalypse. Zombies hate fast food. That’s also why I’m stocking up on flamethrowers, but that’s another post in itself.
Sorry to hear about your knee, just ease on back into it, and put a bag of ice on your knee afterward for a few minutes to keep swelling at a minimum.
And yay to school being back! I heard all the mom cheers this morning!
Thanks, I shall try to ease back and remember to ice…
