Lo, there was TV in the land, and it was good.
Last night I sat down on the couch at 7:00 and I did not move for two hours. I watched My Name Is Earl, 30 Rock, The Office and Scrubs without interruption. All those “welcome back” commercials that NBC has been playing have been tugging at my heartstrings. I truly feel as if all my friends have just returned from a long stint as POW’s vacation.
In other news, I don’t feel too hot. My symptoms are as follows: sneezing, coughing, watery eyes, stinging nose, sore throat, mucus and (possibly unrelated) hiccups. Now, I’m not trying to jump to conclusions, but could I perhaps have an allergy or two? Every single plant in the known universe is budding right now in Texas, and I feel like crap. Sure, could be a coincidence. OR IT COULD BE ALLERGIES. I just printed off a coupon for Claritin D, cause I’m internet-savvy that way. (I may not understand the legal systems in place in China, but I can find a coupon. $4, right back in my pocket, thankyouverymuch.) Here’s hoping that one round of Claritin will knock this mini-congestion right outta my life. That’s not an impossible goal, right?
What’s worse is that I don’t feel good this week. This week that I decided to get healthy. Getting up in the morning to do 80 squats is one thing when you can breathe out of your nose. But doing four sets of push-ups when you have to dry your involuntarily weeping eyes between each set is a whole different monster. I am not looking forward to going out for my run today. But I am going. Oh am I ever going. I am not going to give my body any excuse to maintain status quo.
