Friday Favorites

Normally today would be a much anticipated day
Normally Fridays are full of weekend fun to come
Normally Sassy would go to school
Normally Breezy would go to school too 
(because technically this is her Friday)
But this week we have been home sick
and so we have essentially had 'end of Friday' days for 4ish days
I'm linkin up with these ladies for some Friday Blog Hoppin
So, when you're done, hop along to their blogs to read some more Friday fun!

Whether I Want to or Don't I Will

The title of this post is my new mantra
Specifically while I'm 'jogging'
during my C25K program that I started today

I read a post HERE on Katie's blog Runs for Cookies
And the fact that she admits that she doesn't "stay motivated"
She "stays determined" really resonated with me
It doesn't matter if you have inspiration
It doesn't matter if you are motivated
You either have determination to work toward a goal
or you don't
You either do what it takes or you don't



AND SO I DID
Even though 1/2 way through I didn't want to anymore
even though I felt like my lungs might explode in my chest
even though my legs felt like they might dislocate from my hip sockets
even though I kept thinking how much it SUCKED
Then I changed my thinking
Instead of ruining my determination with negative self talk
During the running I kept saying
"Whether I want to or don't, I will."
AND I DID



And now I am proud
Proud that I finished the first day
proud that I didn't want to and did it anyway
proud that I am one day closer to getting to my goals

LIES all #LIES

Have you ever been in a situation
where you asked someone a point blank question
and they #LIED TO YOUR FACE
and you knew that they #LIED TO YOUR FACE
because you knew the answer to your question before you even asked it
and you just wanted to see if they would #LIE TO YOUR FACE
and THEN THEY DO!



???

Yeah
I kinda hate people like that
Recently "a person who will go unnamed"
but who we shall call THING ONE
asked me a rather personal question
I answered truthfully
Then I returned the question
They answered
I believed them



Then something happened that made me doubt THING ONE'S answer
That may or may not have included me specifically investigating its accuracy



So I asked them again
And they answered with the same answer as before
But then something happened that made me doubt THING ONE's answer EVEN MORE
That may or may not have been a full fledged under cover op on my part to find the #truth



This ridiculous circle happened 11 (yes, ELEVEN) more times
And each time THING ONE answered with the same answer
and by the 11th time I KNEW that THING ONE was #LYING TO MY FACE
So I called them out on it and showed them the evidence I had
AND THEY CONTINUED TO #LIE TO MY FACE


Dude! #WTF ? I know what you did.
DON'T DENY IT #MOFO!

So then THING ONE makes up this outrageous story
Trying to make their actions and their lie logical and justifiable
and THEN goes on to tell me to ask "another person who will remain unnamed"
Who we will call THING TWO
if THING ONE is telling the truth


Well, let me tell you something about THING TWO
I don't trust them as far as I can throw them
They have also #lied to me several dozen times in the time that I have known them
(5 YEARS)
And they have #lied FOR THING ONE who they would supposedly be vouching for
#UGH

So, a texting war ensues
THING ONE declaring innocence from
The Empire State Building and the Eiffel Tower and The Wall of China
and me, laughing like a crazed loon because THING ONE doesn't know how stupid they sound
making such a fool out of themselves
when I know they ARE #LYING TO MY FACE


It goes on and on and on and on
like the song that doesn't end
it goes on and on my friend
THING ONE started singing it not knowing what it was
and they'll continue singing it forever
just because
(They got caught in a bald faced #lie)
this is the song story that never ends
it goes on and on my friend
except this one is mildly more amusing
due to the sheer increasing desperation of THING ONE



Eventually I #stop responding
Eventually they give up
Until yesterday when I receive a text that requires me to scroll for 30 seconds
To read how THING ONE plans to win my trust back
and prove to me they have been telling the #truth



END SCENE

I just wish I could end the #absurdity too
