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.

Treadmill

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

    P.s. I pretty new to this whole blogging thing and was wondering if you managed to have a spare minute to quickly take a look at my blog and give me some feedback, that'd be so highly appreciated. Love it or detest, any comment from a pro like you will be cherished! Thanks!
