I have a few random thoughts/stories bouncing around my brain, so I will proceed to tell you about my day yesterday in the way of a few stories.
Yesterday morning I set out for a drive. Not 5 minutes after I got onto the freeway, traffic was bumper to bumper. I was in a calm mood so I didn’t let it phase me. I could see cars flowing nicely about a mile ahead, and I figured someone was in a fender bender or something like that. Just as I was thinking to myself that there may be a small accident, or perhaps the exorcist was on the loose, what do my wandering eyes see…
A cow. A cow walked RIGHT by my passenger window. I was in shock. I didn’t know if I should laugh or be afraid it was going to hit my car, so I ended up doing one of those awkward worried laughs. I wasn’t concerned about the cow itself because every single car was almost at a dead stop. I froze up to the point where I didn’t even get a picture, shame on me. Bad blogger of the day. Fortunately I found one online, but it doesn’t even come close to my perspective. Just picture yourself in your car with cars in front of you, behind you, and to the left of you..and a cow just casually walking down the center of the lanes. ON THE FREEWAY!!
As the picture and article depict, the cow was wrangled and hopefully taken to the land of other cows where she can play and be happy. Not likely thought because the online article said she was headed for the market. You almost escaped big Bertha, I respect you for your attempt! Poor moo moo..
Moving on. I decided to test my luck at being a badass yesterday and set out for a long run. Now let me give you some brief history of my running/fueling lately. I haven’t run any distance over 5miles since my half marathon, and my eating/h20 consumption has still been awful. No big deal right? I can do 10miles. So that’s what I set out to do. I figured if I just keep running I will have to eventually complete the 10 no matter how fast I go.
I made it to mile 5 and the gas light came on in my brain. Once I looked around me I didn’t dare stop running. I was in the middle of “mini Mexico” or “mini Compton.” I had run this course once before, but Manfriend was with me. The butterflies and rainbows go into hiding when you are running it alone. I would have stopped sooner, but I feared being attacked by wild neanderthals and creatures with guns. Finally at mile 6 my tank ran out of gas. I was forced to walk the remaining 4miles.
I was wearing a tank top and it’s the middle of October. While running this felt nice, walking is a different story. I had to take a 20 minute shower to “thaw out” my hands and limbs. I was freezing. I don’t have a picture to depict this scene, so I will share with you a flying squirrel I found in my trees 5 years ago.
OK last story. My house temperature is set to “hell” heat. I swear my heart wants to jump out of my chest cavity it’s so hot. Instead of turning the heat down, I just shut my door and open my window to max capacity. Somewhere around 1am I woke up freezing. Just the way I like it. So I got up to close my window, and I ended up knocking over the mason jar of water on my desk..onto my computer. My computer started to spazz out and ended up transforming into a sea turtle statue.
Ok so that’s not completely true, but it did turn on by itself and I panicked and tried to wipe off as much water as I could. I then put the computer in a separate room becasue mine was far too cold to help it dry. I guess the hell setting of the heat came in handy because I am typing this post just find on my freshly washed laptop.
I sure hope today is a bit more casual as far as stories go. With my luck one of my cats will probably grow a cape and fly away.
Q: Tell me a story that happened to you recently.
