My name may be Brittany, but it is not Britney Spears. I don’t know what she was referring to when she “did it again” in 2000 with that song, dancing in a red leather jumpsuit. But I’m sure you’re curious what I did again…
This is what.
In second grade, I was in a race on “Field Day” (did you ever have Field Day in elementary school??) Anyway, I slipped on the gravel and cut up my knee pretty badly. Well, it actually wasn’t that bad. I didn’t need stitches, but the doctor did wrap it up for a few days.
When this happened a few months ago, I thought it might just be able to outsmart my clumsiness in the future. But then last night, on my BIRTHDAY, I took another fall. Great birthday treat, huh?
Right after work, I convinced Greg to go on a run outside with me. The weather has been so unusually warm for the middle of winter that am continuing to run outside instead of the treadmill to take advantage of it. We were on our way back towards home, only about 50 yards away, when I followed Greg through a cut-through in the middle of a large cluster of trees. I tripped right over some tree roots and toppled to the ground.
WHYYYY?!?!? Why does this always happen to me?
I told Greg maybe I’m just meant to stick to the treadmill. But now that I have been outside so much, the treadmill seems more boring than ever. I’m not naturally an “outdoorsy” girl, so I guess it just takes some work 🙂 Sidewalks are fine, but when it comes to these bumpy dirt/rock/tree paths, not so much.
Anyway, Greg helped me up off the ground, and my frustrated, dirt-covered self stomped back home, and cleaned up for dinner. The good news was that it was in fact still my birthday. And I still had dinner to look forward to.
Nothing that a hot shower and a pretty dress won’t fix!
I picked out the restaurant Long Point Grill (new for us) a week or so ago and had even decided on what I would order. This way, Greg wouldn’t have to deal with me going back and forth between three entrees for 20 minutes at the table.
