Well, this isn’t too bad after all. I had a silly post on Monday, a Running Commentary on Tuesday, and a shout-out to a local business on Wednesday. I can get away with a Non-Sequitur Thursday post today. Oh who am I kidding? I post as much foolishness as I write and rarely worry about getting away with anything. I type, people read. It is most convenient. At least, I hope people read.
I went running again today but for once did not narrate in my head as I ran. I had a headache all day with nausea in the afternoon and almost talked myself out of running. The nausea had passed by the end of the day, and I can usually run with a headache. I whined to a couple of co-workers that I didn’t want to go running. Then one fellow expressed great admiration for my running.
“I don’t know how you run,” he said.
“Slowly and not very often,” I confessed.
“I wish I could run.” Asthma prevents him. After that it felt churlish not to run. Additionally, the weather was unseasonably warm. I could wear shorts and short sleeves. Score!
But I didn’t mean to write a running commentary. I see that in a previous paragraph I also complained about my aches and pains. I did not mean to do that either. Oh, I know, that is why they make the backspace and delete buttons. But then it would be a much shorter blog post.
Would that be such a bad thing, you may ask. Possibly not. My inner critic would agree, but I try not to listen to that bitch. No matter. I am well over 200 words, so I’m going to slap on a snappy title and call it a day. Happy Thursday, everyone.
