i’m convincing myself that i love to run even though my knee hurts and i’m probably going to get a cortisone shot next week.
and i was eaten by mosquitoes and even though it’s only march.
and i think i swallowed a bug or something that i can’t seem to stop bothering my throat.
but i do love running. (constant mantra.) i’m also convincing myself that i am still myself even though i am currently enjoying a great deal of country music.
‘what? that goes against everything you’ve ever said. like ever, ever.’
i know. but its… just so funny.
it started as just a casual moment in the car during rush hour traffic… when the houston rodeo was going on. i thought ‘all those people can’t possibly like something for nothing… right?’
if you know me at all… that is a huge thought.
counter argument: huntin’, camo, nascar, commemorative plates… etc.
and then i changed one of my programmed stations in the car to one of the numerous country stations… and then i programmed several more.
and then i turned up the twang, rolled the windows down, and drove down some of the lesser populated roads. now i don’t live in the middle of nowhere by any means. but… the middle of nowhere sure ain’t far away. and so i admired the scenery and the late afternoon sunshine.
the scenic route.
boy, i do love me some cows.
sometimes i realize that i can just be all of the things. and that’s what i’ll do, dammit. that being said, here are a few songs that helped me through the bug.
i’m also having a well deserved margarita.
‘well alright then.’
