Life, love and occasional hilarity with an invisible disease.

Back in the Saddle

Posted by ankylosaurusrex on September 29, 2009

I guess this is a post that happens on almost every blog at some point or another.  It’s the post where I apologize to my loyal readership of two that I’ve disappeared for so long.  I then beg for your forgiveness, give no real explanation, but promise it won’t happen again.

Breaking it down point by point:

Begging for your forgiveness

Let’s be honest: I’m not even sure there are two of you out there. In all truth, it’s probably just me reading this as I proof for grammatical mistakes that will drive me mad later. With the truth exposed, I guess this apology is more for myself. Writing is one of those things that makes me happy even when I’m stuck in bed, and I haven’t been doing nearly enough of it lately.

Giving no real explanation

I suppose I’ll have to deviate on this one. I have a number of explanations. I’m not sure if any of them are necessarily good, or the real reason behind my lack of posts, but I’ll give it a shot mostly to catch this up to where I am in my life now: switched medications, quit my job, got a better job, moved, started night school, kept my job, switched medications again and fled the country for a glorious month of much needed vacation.

Promising it won’t happen again

Ha.

The Man on the Street

Posted by ankylosaurusrex on January 30, 2009

Every morning, on my way to work, I pass a homeless man as I come out of the train station.

Every morning, I have some change left in my pocket from breakfast that morning or lunch the day before, so—even though I know my mom would yell at me for doing it—I toss it in his paper cup.

Every morning, we share the same exchange:

Homeless Man:“God bless you, miss.”

Me:“Same to you, sir.”

Every morning, I go to work wearing pants and comfortable shoes.

This Friday, I wore a dress and heels.

And this Friday, this is what our exchange looked like:

Homeless Man: “Girly, you got legs that could bring about the downfall of the great Barrack Obama!”

Me:“Same to… what?”
