I made it to the gym last night and somehow managed to score a treadmill. Score a treadmill, not score on a treadmill like I had originally typed. Though that would seem appropriate based on the direction my posts have been taking lately.
I was walking along and doing my thing. I had a book with me and was doing my best to read and walk. With the reading and walking resolutions I thought it was best to try and kill two birds. It was working fairly well for me. Aside from one minor stumble, walking on a treadmill and reading at the same time wasn’t too tricky. I was deep into my book, reading a story about the author’s travel adventures in Bali when I was interrupted by two women getting on the treadmills next to me.
I was trying not to listen to their conversation and just kept on reading my book. However, when one of the women said, “I know this is the third time he has cheated on me but I trust him and I know he won’t do it again,” I just couldn’t help but look over and give her my best WTFuck look. The woman was cheated on by the same guy three times and she trusts him? Is she out of her mind?
I almost fell off the treadmill when her friend said, “Brad is a really good guy. If you want to make the relationship work you have to trust him.” Is she fucking out of her mind? I’m sorry, but I don’t even know Brad and I already know he is not a good guy.
Afraid I was going to open my mouth and say something inappropriate, I got my ass off the treadmill and left the gym.
My friend Kathryn has recently started a blog. You can find her over at She Don't Make False Claims. She is smart, funny, edgy and dating my very, very good friend Danny. The best part is that I actually like her! In case you don’t remember, Danny is the co-founder of Murderboner. Though nothing has been happening with Murderboner lately, I am sure Leland and Danny will be playing music together once Danny finishes school in May. Anyway, please check out Kathryn’s blog. It’s brand new so you can catch up pretty damn quickly. She is in the middle of writing a funny travel story that you don’t want to miss out on reading.
I just found out yesterday that Siren has started a blog. For those of you who are new, Siren is my best friend and hetero life partner. She has been on-again-off-again blogging for a while and I think she has committed to her new blog Siren and the occasional song. If she gets some comments maybe it'll make her keep writing. Please give her a visit.
