[I realize I should have started this “series” months ago.]
Today’s installment: You know you need a job when…waking up early for the Comcast man to install internet constitutes a big day.
No, really. My dad offered to do the dishes last night so I could prepare for my “big day.” At least there is no shortage of humor in this household. And, thankfully, there IS now a shortage of dial-up internet.
Big day, indeed.
Yes, my lack of running-related posts is directly correlated with my lack of running. You KNOW I’d be bragging if I needed more than one hand to count the number of times I’ve been pounding the pavement (can I use running phrases like this to compensate for my lack of actual activity?) this summer. So, Katie and I have created a plan. A really smart plan.
For every week we don’t accomplish the runs mandated in C25K, we have to pay. $20 the first time, increasing by $10 every time thereafter. We first thought that we should donate the money to a charity. WHO ARE WE KIDDING?! That is way too justifiable. I will make it all the way to November, claiming that instead of completing C25K, I actually completed a rigorous philanthropic training plan. So, we have to give this money to a homeless person on the street. And, we have to spend 30 minutes searching for the person who [we think] is most likely to spend our money on alcohol or drugs. If you think I’m kidding, you don’t know us very well.
Here’s hoping we don’t become the 2 biggest contributors to destructive behaviors on the streets of America.
Cutest thing I’ve seen all day. Hands-down.
This is my life. Too bad no one is paying me to drink coffee and search for jobs and find interesting things on the Internet.
