Exhibit A: my screwed up right knee.
See what had happened was ... Instead of scaling back on the daily run when my knee started to ache and swell weeks ago, I stupidly decided to keep going. Why you ask? Um, cause my hardheaded self decided that just once I wanted to hit my exact weight loss goal. Now my dumbass is limping around the crib until I get the results from this MRI test I've scheduled for next week. (And no, I still ain't hit anywhere near the target weight.)
So because of said screwed up knee I am now only able to use the recumbent bike. (You know the one where all the old ladies sit down, ride and gossip?) DEAD FISH EYES. Mmm-hmm... Oh wait, you hear that? MWAH. That's the sound of me kissing my weight loss goal good-bye. Sigh. I know, I know.
But at least while I'm stuck on the bikes with all the little fat ladies, I have an excuse to indulge in one of my fave guilty pleasures- Maury. PAUSE. Don't judge me. Ya'll know I live for the drama and craziness that is trash talk TV (Besides, nothing says pedal faster than the fat asses that appear on that show).
And don't act like you're not just AMAZED at the ignorance these people are so willing to display for the cost of a paternity test. My fave from this morning? "That baby has blue eyes. I'm Puerto Rican. We don't have blue eyes." Um sir, the child's mother is an Irish red head.
ROFL ROFL ROFL
Yo, where do these people come from? How do they still exist in 2010?
Honestly, not sure I'll ever have an answer for any of those questions. But I can tell you one thing- I damn sure know where they'll be shopping for clothes the next time they get knocked up by Rakim (or is it really his best friend Raheem's baby?).
Mmm-hmm, thanks to Forever 21's new maternity line, Love21 all the underage and barely legal moms-to-be can now cop stylish maternity clothes at bargain basement prices.
Isn't this great? Aren't you relieved that a company that fervently donates to the conservative right and takes the time to print the phrase John 3:16 on the bottom of their shopping bags is now making sure that teenage moms have access fly gear?
I know I'll sleep better at night.
