I went for a long walk today to repent for some dietary sins I've committed recently. I had a leisurely morning of reading the paper, playing on the net and eating omelets. So I decided to take my walk before I showered. Why shower first and then get all sweaty? So I threw on a tank top, some jean shorts, put my hair in a ponytail, and my iPod and I were out the door. I walk the trails daily, and never run into anyone I know, except neighbors, but really who cares if they see me looking like trash? (Heck, I've run over to some of their houses in my pajamas before!) I walked about 3 miles out on the trail, stopped to play on the swings at a park. You're never too old to play on the swings! Then coming out of the park getting ready to start the 3 miles back, I see a guy on a bike stop, and out of my peripheral vision I see him turn around. I can hear him saying something, but can't quite hear what because my iPod was playing. Finally he pulls up next to me, and it turns out to be Dave, a guy I work with. Ugh! I hadn't showered, I have a messy looking ponytail, no make up, wearing a wife-beater tank top. I wouldn't have cared if it hadn't been someone I WORK with. I'm gross. I'm embarrassed. Why don't I ever run into people when I'm looking especially good? Murphy's law!
