Falling down in public(x)

 

***

I have been alternating running jogging with walking on the treadmill. I hate it. I’d rather get a pap smear from the dentist. But whatever, I need to burn some calories.

The other day I was walking through the grocery store (Publix) and OUT OF NOWHERE I had a shocking, shooting, sharp pain in my left knee. I felt like I would fall…but I froze in my tracks…I looked around to see if anyone had shot me with a bee bee gun, a poison dart or a Taser.

The produce guy was eyeing me suspiciously. I’ve got his number.

I did some birth type breathing and the pain left…I grabbed my V8 six pack and slowly headed to safety.

I can’t imagine if that shooting pain hits me while on the treadmill….I’ve heard the term “road kill”…so, would I be “tread Kill”????

I’m getting old.

I am going to stock up on prunes and doily covered tissue boxes.

Well, if you didn’t know it already, the world will be ending on Saturday.

I hope you don’t have any big/special plans.

I told the girls…well, I suppose we shouldn’t go anywhere on Saturday.

and they both said: OR WE should GO EVERYWHERE!!!!

So we will either be nowhere or everywhere.

Where will you be when the world ends?? 

Have a great Friday and whatever part of Saturday you can.

XOXOXOOX

  1. I will be taking Kaish to acting class and then shooting a party in the city : ) I asked Gary to please get home by 11 pm that day so I could spend one hour with him on the last day on earth. He told me he didn't know if the boss would go for that. Last Saturday he worked until midnight. We will see. That naughty lady is FUNNY!

  2. Good thing you didn't fall in Publix. Does your treadmill have the little thingy that you clip to your shirt while you're running/jogging/walking that will stop the treadmill if you fall? I'm thinking maybe that naughty lady needs to start eating her prunes…then maybe she wouldn't be so naughty. :)When I was in college, the world was suppose to end. Yep, we partied as any self-respecting college kids would do if the world was going to end!

  3. HAHA,(on the end, and the old gal. NOT your knee) Have you seen my take on it? What a hoot! Lets see, I'll be having lunch with a friend and shopping for a comfy new antigravity lawn chair. As for your knee, take care not to overstress it. All that exercise won't do diddly if you can't walk anymore! Slow down. That's what us old gals do when we're not sharing our finger with the world 🙂

  4. Cheering my favorite hockey guy, learning about trees with my favorite Cub Scout, cheering the real survivors at Relay for Life, and maybe indulging in a grande frozen mocha just because I can't take that $5 with me anyway.Seriously, baby that knee for a while. It deserves it.

  5. LOL! Oh my gosh, your dentist/pap smear line cracked me up! Probably though, if you've just started running recently, your body needs to get used to it. After a while your muscles won't cramp up like that. Then again, if the world ends tomorrow, we won't have to worry about getting into shape!

  6. Welcome to the world of bad knees. Just a suggestion, do water aerobics in your pool, or find a class at the Y. Mine is at the Boys and Girls club. I haven't lost weight, but I'm clean as a whistle.On the 21st? Depending on the time of day, I could be in my jammies if the end comes before noon, or if it's during SNL I'll be scarfing some ice cream. What a way to go, huh?

  7. If Saturday lasts long enough, I'll have omelets for brunch with my Beautiful Bride, and then I'll work in the yard. We usually make a run to the recycling center on Saturday afternoons, but I'm not sure if that will be necessary if the world is ending — we'll see.I hope you have no more problems with pain in your knee. Don't overdo the treadmill stuff.

  10. If you really hate it then find another activity. Otherwise (sorry) you are doomed to failure. I just love \”geek walking\” and found it's the only thing I will stick with. For my husband, it's his fancy dancy computerized recumbent exercise bike.No need to try anything just yet until we see where we find ourselves come Sunday.I'm not sure, but I think they sell chocolate ice cream all by itself. Might want to consider that.

  21. you gotta be careful in publix! but you wouldn't have been the first to fall there… i saw a lady fall into a display once- and then eric & his other cop buddy ran to help her, which was nice since she was then unconscious. and laura fainted there once… a nice fireman was there to help her… sounds like falling in publix would be better than falling on the treadmill at home. there you might have to just rely on the cats to help you- eek!

  22. The pap smear/dentist about did me in!I have a crazy shooting pain in my knee – have you tried glucosamine? It helps a lot with joints as you're exercising. Also, if you really out-do yourself and want to avoid the muscle cramps the next day, drink protein (chocolate milk will work, too) within 30 minutes after the workout. It's like a miracle – no muscle cramps! Where was this information 20 years ago!!??Love Love Love the naughty lady, toO!
