I have realized something. Writing takes energy. I could be using this energy to do an aerobics tape, walk on a treadmill, or do yoga. But instead I sit here and try to put some words together that maybe sound remotely interesting.
Oh, who am I kidding? If I wasn’t doing this, I’d be watching Big Brother on Tivo or taking a nap. No, I’m really not that healthy for being Miss Healthypants. And I’m also not very exciting.
You know what, though? I like being boring. One of my favorite things to do is to take a walk. Who does that? Old people, that’s who.
I also like to lie on the couch and watch t.v. I’m guessing that’s a typical old person’s activity, too.
My apologies to any of you young’uns who, like me, enjoy a simple walk or a simple lie on the couch.
Ah, a simple lie on the couch. That’s what I’m talkin’ ‘bout.
I have also discovered the simple joy of using a sugar scrub.* Have any of you tried this? It’s the most remarkable feeling. You rub this grainy, painful mix across your dry, raw knuckles (sounds great already, doesn’t it?) and then you rinse it off—this is where the fun part is—and the oil in the mix coats your dry hands like the wonderful feeling of lying under a soft blanket. On the couch. ‘Cause that’s what I like to do.
*My favorite sugar scrub is Bath and Body Works’ Aromatherapy Sugar Scrub in Lavender-Vanilla. Not only does it feel great, but it smells wonderful and puts me into a nice dreamy sleep. Yay!
