I take a walk just fer the dern FUN of it! Seen here RockinOutTo Tom Jones and Jools Holland. Stellar Album! Check it out for putting fun pep in your step.
Why are you WRITING so many gosh derned blog posts lately?
Cause I’ve been inspired by my crazy-ass life to tell stories, and I CAN’T get up the mountain to record due to schedule, voice practice and other reasons. It is MUCH, MUCH easier for me to TELL stories than to write them (partially because there are no weird spell check gremlins in my podcasts – other than my own brain farts. You would be SHOCKED at what my Apple™(oh praise all expensive trendy products amen) iPhone and Mac and iPad write for me at times.
Back to the story…What was I saying?
Oh yeah, brain farts, no er… Walking around parks… Er Apple is the handsome tempting devil….Er DO WHAT YOU WANT! Eureka, now it’s coming back to me….
What are you Talking/Writing about Laurie?
Today Mark and I are going to squeeze ourselves into the big-ass seats from hell…er go see a show at the Pantages Theater..and I woke up knowing what torturous indignity I was about to face. And I DIDN’T CARE! That’s right, an aura of “F*** it” descended from on high. It was early, I had actually gotten 7, count ’em 7 hours of good sleep, the birdies were singing and I decided to go walk around the park!
Why, Laurie? In order to burn off one millimeter of flab off your thighs? To punish yourself for having a big butt? To ‘Get back on’ the proverbial weight loss wagon?
I just felt like it.
What’s that? Exercise for fun? Wah?????
Not really. I wasn’t trying to entertain myself. It was just a beautiful day, I wanted to listen to Tom Jones and Jools Holland’s awesome album (LOVE THIS ONE) and I decided to walk on down to the park as long as I had time before I needed to contain my ass into all known slimming devices – er, get ready for the theater.
There must be MORE to this story than that!
As walked around the park, danced around it really. I bet I looked might strange to the dog walkers and dedicated runners and exercisers I passed by. I was boogieing, twisting and swinging my way under the trees with a smile on my face and I DID NOT CARE WHAT I LOOKED LIKE. I even became one of “THOSE” people who sing badly and loudly when no one ELSE can hear what’s in your earbuds.
I really enjoyed my walk. I don’t know how many calories it burned. I didn’t have it in my plans today to walk before we leave for the fat shaming torture box, er theater, but somehow it came together for me…
DO What you WANT
It’s your life. (I’m talking to myself here as well as you).
Eat what you damn well want! Do what you damn well want to do. Stop apologizing for wanting what you want. Stop it. Just stop it. Dance to Tom Jones and Jools Holland when everyone thinks you are a gyrating weirdo…after all, you CAN hear that music.
Earbuds are like your inner voice. Sometimes only YOU can hear your heart and you look like a FOOL to others. So what?
Do what you want. It’s YOUR life.
