One More Reason I Loves Me Some Ben
One night recently when I was suffering from Restless Arm Syndrome (not to be confused with RLS, which also afflicts me), I said to Ben, “I think I might have arthritis.” He said, “Wow, really, what makes you think that?” In my head I had what I actually thought were vaguely valid reasons for this self-diagnosis, but it was late and I was tired and after I’d already opened my mouth, I discovered I was unable to explain. I said something like, “I guess… I’m not…” and thought I was going to say “sure” but instead I said “… a doctor.” And Ben looked at me with a very convincing look of surprise and said, “Huh.” And then we giggled for like ten minutes. Maybe you had to be there, but you’d have had to have been in bed with us, which means there’s no way you could have been there.
One Reason I Love Nina
Because who else would want to have a conversation about Dr. Phil’s sex life?
Thoughts About Diet and Exercise
Exercise: Not my fave.
But I did get me a new old bike, thanks to my sister, and that’s kind of fun.
Ben helping change tires: nice.
Man across street who helped me adjust the rear wheel: nice.
Carring bike up and down the stairs: Against. This bike is heavy.
Riding bike in the city: A little scary.
Donated helmet with “I heart my clit” sticker: um, "not really me" would be an understatement. Helmet in general: not really me. (I am from/survived childhood in a pre-helmet-existing generation.) My head and face: very much me. Thoroughly, enjoyably me. So will express love for clit for the time being and hope no one notices.
Diet: I’m not terribly in favor of this either, but recent weight gain has caused me to attempt both, at once (gasp!) and Weight Watchers is now easy, and here’s why: because there are these ice cream sandwiches that = 2 points called “No Pudge,” and if I can have one or two of those in my day, I can get by just fine.
Cats and Rats and Miscellaneous Critters
Kitties in the yard: I like them and sometimes feed them.
Kitties in the house: Make me sneeze and bust out in hives.
Rats anywhere, dead or alive: against. I am told that there is currently a dead one under our porch, and have not been down to verify.
Critters in Iowa: cute and frolicky. Disney-esque.
Critters in Chicago: less so.
Tom Cruise Anywhere: High tendency to over-frolick.
