The Something of My Ways… Wisdom?

I took a timeout from teleworking today to enjoy a walk with Phaedra.

As my ever-burgeoning buttocks bounced happily behind me, I wondered what tweaks to my daily habits might reverse that jiggling trend.

A young man caught up to me on the all-but-deserted pathway, “You’re going to think this is very forward of me, but I’m a personal trainer and…” bla, bla, bla.

The lengthy exchange was pleasant and professional and I returned to my walk feeling triumphant at having successfully deflected all compliments and steered clear of a pitch.

It was only as my mind was drawn back to my jiggling behind that I realized what I’d done.

How often do I nip opportunity in the bud?
Why do I put pride ahead of progress?
And, what’s the scoop on this Marvin guy? I wish I’d got his last name.

    OK, this is ridiculous “my ever-burgeoning buttocks bounced happily behind me”. You tell your inner critic that she needs to go elsewhere, as you have a lovely, tight, compact body that has just defeated cancer and put up with numerous invasions and is doing JUST FINE!!! nnNow, as to nipping opportunity in the bud, great insight. Just don’t take it out on that cute little butt that follows you around. I SAID SO!
