So, here is a true story about my wild and crazy Friday night last week.
Last Friday I went to the movie theater after work to see "The Bucket List" with Venessa, Dani, and Nicole. (By the way, it was a good movie and it has an excellent new song "Say" on the soundtrack by John Mayer) On my way home I stopped by Smith's because someone told me I might find the new book club book ("The Book Thief") there for only ten bucks. Well, they didn't have the book, but they did have Lean Cuisines on sale. I like to take Lean Cuisine or Healthy Choice meals to work because they are super cheap and I'm monitoring my calories more now that I'm in full training mode for the marathon. Anyway, I filled up my little basket with a variety of Lean Cuisines and headed to the self check-out. It was while I was scanning and bagging that I looked over and noticed two couples staring at me with pity/amusement on their faces. I then realized how ridiculous and pathetic I must have looked...alone at the neighborhood Smith's on a Friday night at 8:30 stocking up on Lean Cuisines (aka the brand of choice for single, weight-conscious females everywhere). I just started laughing because I realized how ridiculous and pathetic I must have looked to those people. I like that I can laugh at myself because it makes everything so much more fun.
Oh, and lest I come off as misleading, I actually do own my own reflective vest but it is for running purposes only and I have never taken it with me to work.
