Hello world. What an experience I have had with you lately. You really know how to entertain a girl! Like last night for instance. I went to teach my Yoga class, lit the incense, laid my material out and copped a squat on the cushions for a bit of Rodney Yee before class. Before I know it, it's 6:05 and the only participants for Yoga is the stray cricket OMMMMing in cricket pose. Class "started" at 6:00. I had been stood up! Oh World, there's a first time for everything isn't there?
My hubby eats the "gooey" of the gooey butter cake and leaves the "crust"
I needed a drink. As luck would have it my friend Tina had invited me out for drinks! I was a bit thankful that I wouldn't show up smelling like a monkey for said drinks so it all worked out after all. Fate was on my side, World. I could go out with my girlfriends and smell lovely! However, World, why did you have to throw in the creepy guy at the bar? He zoned in and headed straight our way. Ugh! Really? Did I really smell that lovely? That's OK, World. You did throw in that fabulous new store I didn't know about. That new shirt makes up for said creepy guy. However, the headache in my left eye that has lasted all throughout the night and day, today is a real stinker! I guess you were trying to make up for said headache with the cute new guy that showed up for Yoga this morning? Even though I am happily married, I can talk about his cuteness because he was much younger than me. We attended the same high-school but I graduated in '93 and he in '00. Is this your way of making me feel old, World? World, you just keep throwing me for a loop doncha now?
