Monday Chit Chat

I like when I don't have a work shift on Monday because I can get so much done. I got the crock pot on first thing for the BBQ chicken thighs with cole slaw for dinner. I just set the bread maker going for fresh oatmeal bread. I emptied the dishwasher and made a cup of green tea. I've watered the seeds, too. We got two of the four boxes planted yesterday. Watch this space for an upcoming photo story featuring the evolution of our (soon to be, hope and pray) vegetable garden. Keep your fingers crossed that the seeds sprout, so I can actually have after shots to share.

I've also been to the gym. The workouts are getting longer and more intense but the endorphins are well worth the pain of the three sets of 90 second plank and the body weight matrix that come at the end of a long and intense weight session. I absolutely love it! Working out has made me a generally more active person and that is a miracle in and of itself.

This morning's workout was interesting to say the least. I had an experience unlike any other. Really bad B.O.! Not my own, of course. It's not like I shower before I go to the gym but I wash up, apply fresh deodorant and a dab of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab perfume oil (usually one that smells sweet like candy or vanilla as not to overwhelm anyone with flowers or musk) and put on clean clothes. They were a couple working out together, in their own funky little world and kissing in between sets. Gag a maggot. I curse Lisa for leaving me to experience it alone because she had an appointment this morning. Man, oh, Manilow Live I have never smelled anything like it (and I have smelled many an aroma in my 16 year nursing career.) I'm having fits of giggles right now because it's making me think of the Seinfeld episode when the B.O. got in Jerry's car. I know it's a delicate subject and I sound like an awful bitch but how can you not be aware that you smell like that?

I'm going to leave you with that image, lucky for you just the image and not the accompanying odor. Have a great Monday, I'm off to shower where I'll be sure to give my axillae some extra T.L.C.
