Manic Monday

OK I know this is Tuesday... but I was pretty busy yesterday and after catching up with my weekend posts I thought maybe I should spend a little time working. LOL yeah right! Actually after lunch Arland and I went to the Cingular store and he bought me a new phone as my Marathon present :) pretty cool.... I'm hoping my Yeah you finished a marathon present will be a new Ford Edge or Honda CRV... hint hint ;)

So yesterday morning I had to go to the bank. I walked in the door and a lady who walked in just ahead of me started coughing and hacking/ I immediately went into a little panic, oh no this place is going to be swimming with germs. etc. There were 4 people in line and I tried to stay as far away from that lady as I could, poor thing she probably thought I was crazy!! After a few minutes another lady walks in looking a little untidy and stands right behind me so I move up a little, but now I'm trapped between two suspect looking women who are probably harboring millions of germs... well then I look at the other people in line and they all look like germ harborers as well. Sheeessshhhh I started to get a little manic, my heart started racing, I felt a little light headed and inside my brain I was screaming get me out of here, I didn't realized it at first but I was tapping my foot like crazy and trying to figure out how to get out of there without being attacked by the million germs surrounding me. I was finally able to take care of my banking and leave before I went nutso in public!!

I've been reading about taper madness for months and now I know how it feels!!! LOL

Not to panic you or anything, but what are you going to do when you get on the airplane Friday? talk about germs, just don't touch anything, you'll be fine.....Love ya!!

unfortunately I have already been thinking of that! Do you think Kim and Brenda will still sit with me if I wear one of those surgical masks???? LOL

I have been trying to convince my husband that I deserve a "Marathon present" and he isnt buying it. How did you do it ??? :)

You sound like ME! Ha. I avoided everything like crazy before my marathon in March. And I did everything the coach said TO THE LETTER.
