Have you ever been in a store and had some one noticeably judge you based on your purchase? Well, i did on friday night.
I stopped off at the grocery store looking for a few staples. In my world, there are really only four food groups. Vodka, Olives, Cheese, and Baguette. Any other food is just par for the course. (whatever that means, i have never golfed...)
If i were to choose a last meal, i would stuff the cheese in the olives, drop the olives in the vodka, and eat the baguette as an accoutrement. In fact, why wait for a last meal - thats what i did Friday. And maybe Saturday too....
While i was purchasing these staples of life, i also noticed that valentine's day candy was 50% off. That's an awesome deal!! I like to think of myself as more of an opportunist than a binge eater. Buy candy at 50% just makes sense. We're in a recession after all....
So, in the end, the contents of my basket were mostly candy, accompanied by vodka, cheese, olives, and bread. And i thought nothing of this. As i unloaded my basket on the to the conveyor thing at the check out, the woman in front of me who was being rung up looked at my items, then at me, and then she LAUGHED. WTF LADY? Sometimes a girl just needs to stock up on vodka and candy. Who do you think you are? All high and mighty, buying your eggs and salmon. GEEZ.
Have you ever been secretly or not so secretly judged? Or, have you been the judger? Sometimes i give people disapproving looks when i see them order an awesome blossom at a restaurant. I mean seriously- no good can come from eating that thing.
In other news, my legs are still kinda sore from Saturday. I went and cross-trained for an hour, and went to hot yoga class, but they still feel TIRED! they just don't want to move. I even ran a sad pathetic mile yesterday just to make sure i didn't really damage anything. The legs work fine, they are just heavy and tight feeling. This is the first time i haven't bounced right back from a run since i first started running last summer. Apparently, running 16 miles is no easy task.
