You’re on a run with your little brother and run quite a challenging course of rolling hills in 30 degree weather. You think you’ve been running for 10 miles and decided to take a shortcut home at the suggestion of your brother. That shortcut, much to your surprise, takes your right into the heart of a train yard. You find yourself forging your way through briers, thorns, and underneath train cars. (P.S. turns out you only ran for 6.5 miles)
I did that.
It’s Monday, and the work day seems long. You’re craving chocolate so on a lunch trip to the grocery store you stand in line wondering if you want Peanut MnM’s or Twix. And then you think, “it’s Monday, and it’s November”, so you get both.
Yea, I did that.
While you’re checking out at the store, there sit your two candy bars amidst the plethora of organic and fresh groceries. When the cashier asks if you want the candy out of the bag, you say “no”, sincerely hoping that she doesn’t think they are for you and that you look like you have two children awaiting you at home and you’re the kind of mom who would surprise her little angels with a sweet treat. After all, it is Monday and it is November.
Yup, I did that, too.
You down the Peanut MnM’s in about 2.5 seconds, but, after much deliberation, save your beloved Twix for a special occasion. That special occasion? Dessert for two with your husband.
And I did that, too!
Do you ever have 2-candy-bars-a-day kind of days? Are they usually Mondays?!
