It's Wacky Wednesday

Why is it "wacky" you ask? I'll tell you. This morning I did something wacky and so Not Me. I went on a 4 mile walk this morning! I know you're thinking, "No way!" And I'm like "Way!" And you probably want to know what possessed me to do a 4 mile walk this morning and I'll tell you. Stupidity.

After dropping of Thing 2 at the Designated Drop-Off spot for school (Sizzler parking lot), I get to the park 1/2 hour before the Nature Center, my walking spot of Choice, is open. Because I'm already about 1500 miles over on my 12K miles a year stupid-ass lease, I'm not going to drive home and then drive back to the park. So I had decided I'd walk the flat concrete path at the park as a warm-up and then cross the street to the Nature Center.

But this morning, something wacky came over me and I ended up walking all of both Areas II and III, which is a good 4 miles. And let me tell you it was Not Fun. There wasn't anybody in Area III which made it kind of eerie because I was alone and it was pretty foggy and Area III is a very large area. And it's flat. And boring. And since all I had eaten was one Activia yogurt (gotta keep things "regular" if ya know what I mean) so at about Mile 3, I started dragging and getting what I call "woogly legs." About the only thing that kept me going was the songs on my iPod. "Sheena is a Punk Rocker" does have a tendency to perk one up.

I was so pooped that I couldn't even stop to chat with the squirrels because I knew if I stopped walking, I wouldn't be able to move again. I just wanted to get back to my car and collapse.

So by now you're thinking, "You walked. Big whoop. You're such a wacky gal."

But wait. There's more.

Guess what I did next? Of COURSE I went to the Crack House (duh!) but get this: I did NOT get My Usual. Instead, I got just a teeny-tiny Breakfast Burrito! And a Medium Diet Coke. And the Hashbrown Sticks but my point is that I got something DIFFERENT than my usual Bacon & Egg Quesadilla! How Whack is That?

Filed under "Nothing to do with the topic at hand:" Did you know that the harmonica is the most-sold musical instrument in the country? I was not aware of that useful tidbit of trivia until Mr. Bob Zimmerman Dylan Zimmerman Dylan informed me this morning.

And my Wednesday Earworm is "The Jean Genie" by David Bowie.

And now, I'm going to do something else wacky. I'm going to go and clean my house.

Because it's Wacky Wednesday, folks.
