Life Lately: Bad Dates and Kleenex and Stuff

October 14, 2014

Creak, creak, creak. Do you hear that keyboard? That's me, your little old pal. 

So. What have I been up to?

Well. I've been sick. 

There's this gross nastiness going around Michigan right now and I just really don't appreciate it (but as long as it's not ebola, I won't haterate). This is my first time being sick-sick while living on my own and I have to say... I. Freaking. Loved. It. 

I wish I was as cute as this cat when I was sick.

When you're sick and you live with others, you waste so much energy trying to make sure you're cleaning up after yourself and preventing them from getting sick too. When you live alone and you're sick, all bets are off. Picking up that sweater? No. Containing kleenexes? No. Doing dishes? No. You just lay there on the couch and you get better, little thang. 

In other words, I learned I am the grossest human alive when I am sick because I stop cleaning. (But Ang I cleaned, so don't be afraid to come over for the MinProj tonight)

Well. I went on a date. 

Being sick and all, I'm sure I was a huge gem. I didn't want to go by the time it actually came, but I put my big girl panties on and went for it. I guess I thought it would be good practice? 

Things got awkward when he was all "I graduated in 1995. What were you doing then?" And I was all "Uhhhh I was 5." 

So that was that. It didn't seem like an important age difference, until we pictured him asking a five year old out to dinner. 

In other words, I learned that bar lights are super tricky and there are in fact 37 year old men who still wear baseball hats backwards and Marilyn Monroe t-shirts (eww). 

How have you all been?
What stellar things have you been learning lately?

  1. Oh no! Hope you feel better. And that definitely sounds ... awkward to say the least!

  2. Awkward and sickness, not two things you want/need at once. I hope you're feeling better!

  3. Feel better! I've had the flu from hell this week, so I feel your pain!

  4. I hate being sick anywhere except for with my mama or daddy around ha. At nearly 26 I still turn into a complete baby & wanna be taken care of.

  5. I'm so sorry you're sick, but glad you're feeling better!

    Chris is 8 years older than me, which, at our ages is really not a big deal at all. But every once in awhile, I like to tease him when he talks about things that happened when he was growing up and I'm like, "Yeah, I was three..."


Your comments make my day! Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.
