One of my finer moments occurred this morning, when I woke up early to take Rea to the bus stop on my way to the gym.
Yes, you heard me; the GYM!
I even took a faraway parking spot, rather than taking the one right next to the handicapped spot, and opted to take the stairs as opposed to the elevator, so I wasn’t the fata** who got up early to go to the gym only to avoid walking and taking the stairs on the way to my workout.
Now, one might think that God would give me an awesome high-5 for all of my extra effort today, but instead God allowed me to trip and fall; my fata** flying and flailing all over the place. Curse words were uttered and I may or may not have seriously injured my left, big toe. It’s purple and it hurts.
The worst part? I was going UP the stairs. Who falls going UP the stairs?! There were only like 10 steps. I couldn’t handle going up 10 steps without falling this morning. That might be a new record for me…
Little Miss Size Zero, who had been skipping behind me, was trying not to crack a smile, nor fully make eye contact, when she asked me if I was okay. I just told her that I was fine; just not fully awake yet.
Of course I made a mental note to limp painfully every time I saw her in the gym the rest of the morning.
On top of all of this, I get into the gym to find out that it’s a 24 Hour Fitness Sport PLUS or some crazy thing and my membership is only the regular kind of 24 Hour Fitness, so I’m not even good enough for them unless I give them more money!
They generously let me workout for free this morning, possibly because they felt sorry for the Circus Act performance on the stairs that they may or may not have also been able to see (I’m going to hope for my own sanity that they were not able to see)…
On a more positive note: I went to the gym this morning – YAY ME!
