On falling down on treadmills
I saw this one guy totally eat it on the treadmill at the gym the other day, and he hit his chin on the part where your feet go–he hit it hard. The guy, who was in his early 20’s, was obviously in pain but I think his embarrassment made him get right back up and keep jogging on the treadmill. About 10 minutes later, I saw him walking to the bathroom, holding his chin. I felt so bad for him.
Here’s the thing about falling in public places–we’ve all fallen and we ALL know how embarrassing it is. I know I’ve eaten it in public on several occasions. One time, at Universal Studios after getting off the ET ride, I was walking and talking (two things I should never do simultaneously) and I was facing my mom, and totally ran into a sign post. Like no joke, I was mortified. Two guys next to me started busting up and I wanted to die…I must have been 14 or so and I still remember.
So if you see someone fall, the only appropriate thing to do is pretend it didn’t happen and you didn’t see it, okay?
On having babies
No, I’m not pregnant, but Eric and I went to the hospital Sunday to visit our best couple friend who welcomed their first baby girl into the world. It was crazy, they have a baby, people.
Holding their baby made me realize though that I still don’t want one. While theirs is incredibly cute, I just don’t have that maternal thing going on right now. I guess that gives me some time to work on my baby bucket list. (Just realized I got to cross off “Move out of the love shack” from the baby bucket list, that felt good!)
Links I’m loving
So Over Debt sold her son’s Xbox after she caught him lying about his homework. This–to me–is excellent parenting, and also one of the reasons I feel so adamant against video games.
Money Q and A presented The Unintended Costs of Becoming a Landlord.
Spend less than you earn, says Married with Debt. Simple concept. Just like eat less, move more is the concept behind losing weight. It’s so easy, but so hard!
Below Her Means presented her student loan breakdown, and she has set her goal to paying it off by the end of 2013.
