Friday Letters Vol. 3
Dear Legs, Thank you for being on your best behavior as of late. We're gonna crush this half, baby.
Dear Sidewalk, I get that you might not like your current lot in life — what with people walking all over you day in and day out — but was it really necessary to attempt escape in such a fashion that led you to trip me? Eating concrete and nastily skinning both palms in front of easily a dozen cars last night was not my idea of a good time. And now that I've got a fun feeling in my right wrist and arm, as well as two absolutely burning palms, I'm really disappointed in you.
|Still finished with a race pace though, so I'm good.|
Dear Blog Readers, Thank you for letting me talk money with you. I love you for it.
Dear To Do List, I want to break up.
Dear Mom, I love that I'm 25 and even though I knew what I had to do (wash, peroxide, rinse, aloe, antibacterial cream), I still was able to call you and tell you the Saga of my Skinless Palms and get a virtual pat on the head. Sometimes daughters just need to talk to mamas. We've all been through a lot over these last few weeks. It was kind of nice to have the reason for our latest urgent phone call to be something simple like skinned palms.
Dear Nadia, Thank you for suggesting the Sleepytime Vanilla tea; it's been my new best friend all week!
Dear Netflix, Providing us with Gilmore Girls on Instant is one of the kindest things anyone has ever done for me. Now when in frog's name are you going to let us have Friends, Will & Grace, The Mindy Project, and Modern Family? Get your life together.
Dear Family, I can't wait to see you this weekend!
Dear Coffee, Sometimes I really think you might be one of the great loves of my life. Remember back when I was a good writer who actually wrote things and I wrote that little ode to you for a writing challenge? I think I'll have to dig that up.
Dear Long Run, It's just you and me this Sunday. After that we're gonna have to take a little break, but don't worry — we'll be back together in two weeks on race day. We're only just getting started anyway. Love you like XO.
Dear Weekend, Come here often, hot stuff?
Have wonderful weekends, all of you. What are you up to?
