On the brighter side, I haven’t had a headache in a long time.
On the dimmer side, now I don’t want to make a blog post where all I do is whine about how I have a headache.
This is simply dreadful. I want to make my blog post before going to a beer tasting at Beer Belly Bob’s in Ilion, and this damn headache won’t go away, dammit. Ah, I see by their Facebook page, the full name of the business is Route 51 Beer Belly Bob’s Discount Beverage Center. They recently opened. A work friend of mine is a close personal friend of Bob. I love small town living.
I hurried home today so I would have time to go running AND get ready to go to the beer tasting. I got my run done. Not too long, definitely not very fast, no hills, but, hey, one does what one can. At least I ran. I even stretched when I got done, which I neglected to do yesterday (don’t judge). When I went to take my shower, I wished once again that I had one of those old lady shower chairs so I could sit down while I washed. Oh yes, I could have taken a bath, but then I would have had to (1) wait while the tub filled and (2) get up out of the tub when I had finished. Could I fight gravity to that extent? I did not try.
Once clean, I had to figure out a cute outfit to wear. No, I don’t HAVE to look cute (cue unkind remarks about how I can’t look very cute anyways). I just like to. For one reason, my husband, Steven, is also going to the beer tasting. I think it is nice to look cute for your husband of over 26 years. I finally came up with something not too contemptible. I had been picturing something kind of sophisticated, perhaps featuring a silk jacket. Then I remembered I was going to taste beer. I went for an oversized men’s polo shirt and yellow capri pants. I found my earring made from a Black Label beer can (I only have one, because I lost the other, but that’s OK, because I almost never wear matching earrings). I put it in the ear with one hole. In the ear with two holes, I put dangly fresh-water pearls and a silver-and-gold hoop.
I don’t know why I am becoming so detailed, but I just realized I am over 400 words. For starting with the idea that I could not post anything because of that stupid headache (which I still have, by the way), I think that is pretty good, especially for Lame Post Friday. Ooh, and my date should be here any minute. Happy Friday, everyone.
