Since I'm not reading anything - other than a non-fiction for research - I thought I'd stray from the norm.
Yesterday was a shitty day. There were no major catastrophes happening in my life, I just wasn't having a good day. So I decided a good 'ole fashion pity party was called for. How do I pity party? I get a Pepsi (the non-caffeine kind since I've finally managed to break myself off of the real stuff) and a donut.
I stopped at a Sheetz convenient store and as I was walking in I thought, "Oh man, this is a terrible idea." Not the Pepsi and the donut, but my choice of stores in which to by my party supplies. I was smack dab in the middle of the university area.
Just what an overweight, middle-age woman already in the throws of a pity party needs. To see twenty something, skinny girls getting donuts and Pepsi's and burgers and fries, without fear of gaining ten more pounds on each thigh.
But you know what? Those college kids are a mess!
The guy working the register was flying solo, as the second cashier didn't show up for work today. He was having a much worse day than I was! LOL
There was a young girl, late teens or maybe early twenties, standing with her strung out boyfriend, a baby on her hip. She was wearing baggy sweats, a huge, over sized t-shirt with all kinds of stains on it and her hair was half-in, half-out of a pony tail.
Then, there was the girl who was dressed like a fashion model. I think that was the goal anyway. I couldn't get past the black rubber boots shined to a high gloss with an insanely pointed toe and a white heel. Not the whole sole, that was black like the boots. It was just the wedge heel that was white.
I left with my Pepsi and donut feeling pretty damned good about myself and thanking God that I don't have to go through THAT phase of my life again!
So how do you pity party? Next time I'm having one, I might try your ideas.
I hope it's a great weekend for everyone!!
Peace and love,
