remember the scene in You’ve Got Mail. meg ryan in the supermarket line. folks behind her are irritated. well. that’s how my day started only that actually wasn’t the start. it had gone down hill hours earlier.
i’m flying through publix, in my sweaty workout garb which is the only way those employees ever see me, for the third time this week already. which is due in fact to the inadequacy of my lack of list making skills but that’s a confession for another day. so i’m in the check out line, minding my own sweaty business, loading up my groceries, while i’m texting something along the lines of “ohmygosh. i never called you on your birthday. i mean i gave you a social media shout out but i didn’t call you and actually wish you happy birthday, like live. i love you. are we still friends” to a precious friend. i sense the lady behind me is glancing up to the sign & at that point i realize it’s actually the express lane. and i have more than 10 items. like i probably have 18 items. so i finish the text and tell the lady behind me with her one item that she may go ahead. she smiles. i then realize the lady behind her is now looking up at the sign so i tell her she too can go ahead of me. lady #1 was grateful and smiley. lady #2 remained irritated at my multitasking debacle of the express lane. and was unaffected by my line maneuver generosity.
well i had to hurry up & get home because my day had started 5 hours prior with a “your website is under attack”. well heck flippin yes. this is exactly how i want to start my day. so i run a quick scan at 6:30 am & realize all is fine. i write my blog post and because in the immortal words of hermione ( harry potter anyone), my priorities are sorted out & i head to spin class.
well on the way to spin class i make one of two groveling phone calls to two different friends. not to be confused with the aforementioned birthday girl. the first one involved “im sorry my email made you feel i was telling you i didn’t have time for you” and the second one went something like ” i’m sorry i never called you back about getting together this weekend”.
clearly i’m a friendship failure. and its only wednesday. and mind you, at this point, it’s not even 9:30. dude.
thankfully my spin class smackdown involved a playlist with very loud macklemore, katy perry and pitbull which truth be told, are the perfect distraction for all things real life related.
by 4pm i had heard back from 2 of the 3 girlfriends & we were all aok. i heard back from google that my site had been reviewed and i was good to go. dinner was in the oven and i was 1.3 pounds lighter post spin class. give or take.
if i ever give you reason to believe i have my act together, let this service announcement serve as a reality check.
