Saturday Stuff

Self Medicated

“Hey, where are you going?” I hobbled after the young woman . “Wait! There’s more!”

I collapsed onto a park bench and rubbed my temples. My head pounded. Why was I in the park? What day was it?


“Hello bird,” I mumbled. “Would you like to hear my story? It’s an interesting juxtaposition of fantasy and reality and I’m sure I took my medication.” I blinked. What the heck??

I sighed and tried not to cry. I was confused. I knew this. I also knew I was supposed to be somewhere.

I laid down and stared at the sky.

“Help,” I whispered.

Girls Just Wanna Run …

… or walk in my case because I don’t want to have knee surgery when I’m in my 50’s … or in other words, in a few years!!!

Yep. I’m doing another 5K next Saturday. It’s for women only (do they have a men’s only walk/run? Why not? Fair is fair).

I haven’t told anyone at work I’m doing this 5K. I don’t want to have walk with anyone. I just want to listen to my music and walk/jog at my own pace.

I know. I’m so anti-social it’s not even funny.

ADDED: Sorry. I guess I should give ya’ll the link if you’re in the Springfield MO area and want to participate … CLICK HERE if you want to run, yo. Just don’t look for me. (*kidding!*)
