Um, Have We Met?

11 Oct

Ben just asked me if I would be interested in running a 5k with him. What the…?

First things first. I don’t run. I did in college, because I was a cheerleader and it was required. And, I never “grew to love it” as so many insist will happen. I loathed just as much the day it was over as the day it began.

Secondly, what (exactly) is he trying to say?

    BenFrom my experience even tap dancing is not going to help you out of this. I might suggest – (Name here) you feeling ok? Followed by I was just concerned as you look like you have lost some weight. Works for me 1 out of every 3 times used. Oh yeah, make sure you have some earrings on hand for those other two times.

    So everyone doesn't think I'm an ass. This is where I got my idea. See habit #4

    I remember how much you didn't look forward to running but I'm with Ben here! Just think, you could get knock out two birds with one stone…spend some time together and knock out a few pages worth of your newest reading(listening) interest while you do it. Besides, if you start now, you won't have to worry about portions at Thanksgiving :-)I'm thinking that if you divert that wrinkled forehead expression at me, it might just get Ben out the DogHouse…

    Ben Hope I didn't offend you. Sorry if I did. In my day I would have suggested we would do something that I knew she liked doing. Then later she would ask about doing something that I liked doing.Gentlemen, all subjects that can be related to weight gain or the need to lose weight(in her mind)should be avoided (even in jest).

    Update: Neither one of us have started running yet. Raise your hand if you saw that coming. (Hand raised.)
