It's funny how alcohol brings out the truth in me. For the most part, I'm a quiet drunk. I don't get loud and I don't get angry or mean. I don't really get that sentimental either. Alcohol does however act as a truth serum. It's not like I drop huge truth bombs, just subtle things like, you’re not the father. Just kidding, I have no children. Children scare me. I fear I may lose my mind watching Dora the explorer and playing trains all day. But that’s another story for another day. Back to the truth.
So last Friday Scott and I went to go see Imogen Heap in concert. The Shins did not change my life like Natalie Portman said they would, but Imogen Heap? She’s life changing…for me at least. So we’re at the concert and naturally we want beer. Problem is concert alcohol is like 8 billion times more expensive than regular at home alcohol, so we did what any sane poor person would do. We drank Fosters. It’s like 3 times the beer for the price of 1.
The concert was over an hour late starting, so we had a lot of time to drink and chat before hand. It was then, that I admitted that I’d been feeling like total road kill for the past month. My workouts have sucked. My eating patterns could be likened to that of a 600lb gorilla. Wait, gorillas eat lettuce and broccoli and carrots (in the zoo of course). Never mind, gorillas have been eating better than me lately. The problem is that this way of life is feeling normal to me again. When you’re on a total health kick and feel great, then eat like shit, you notice. But when you eat like shit for 3 weeks, it begins to feel, well…not so shitty.
Damn you Fosters! You make me see the light. For realz though, it’s not like I had this great epiphany, it’s just that when you realize something and say it out loud, it has a bit more weight to it. So the truth is that I’ve been feeling really gross lately. I’m tired, my back hurts and I’m totally non-productive.
But...this week will be better. I'm going to turn it around. Promise!
