Saturday Scribbles: Treadmill

Against A Mountain

This is a true story. Pretentious people make me itch worse than pantyhose on a humid, 97 degree day. I don't wear pantyhose any more (celebrating five years pantyhose free! WooHOO!!!), and I don't put up with pretentious people. Ever.


mr. brylcream
jogs next to me
and chatters
about his physique
and how he
mountain-biked Cougar Mountain
in the mud
the ooze
is everywhere
and how if
the weather holds
he'll go kayak-yak-yakking
this weekend
yadda, yadda,
shut up and run
