When someone asks you if you want the bad news first or the good news, which do you choose? I always want to hear the good news last so that I can end on a high note. I don’t have many gripes today, but I have 1 worth mentioning. No worries ~ I also have 3 raves (glow sticks not included).
1. Last weekend in TJs, a lady stopped to tell me how awesome a dessert product was. A stranger then made an inappropriate comment as she walked away from me. He smiled and jokingly said she can eat whatever she wants and not worry about gaining weight. Ummm… hello, mister, but where do you get off talking about a woman’s weight? She wasn’t even talking to that sleaze-ball.
Clearly, I was infuriated, and I wonder if she was too. Don’t assume she doesn’t work her butt off for that butt. No matter her size, she probably doesn’t want some creepy jort-wearing man checking out her body in the grocery store!
Whew – I need to calm down a bit – blood pressure just spiked, and I probably have a vein on my forehead.
1. Uncle Ben’s fast-cook wild rice is breathtaking. Yes, it’s that good. After making some Wednesday night, Kev and I couldn’t quit gushing about it. I don’t even care about its ultra-processed ingredients (okay okay… I kinda care); I’m going to buy it again anyway!
2. I also want to rave about the pool. I usually avoid swimming since the chlorine dries and fades my hair on impact, but since I’m getting my hair done this weekend anyway, I decided to hit the pool yesterday morning. It felt great to exercise without stressing my joints and sensitive muscles. I also did pilates and planks at home before hitting the pool. My core was happy.
3. I finally finished Unbroken this week. Wow – what an powerful book. If you want to be thankful for what you’ve got, read this! Warning: It’s very graphic and contains details about war that might give you nightmares. It’s disturbing, but it pulls you in. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
What is a rant for you? How about a rave? Be sure to end on the rave so that I’m happy when I finish reading your comment.
