Mine has chocolate soy milk. The mug is warm in my hand.
Let's talk. Pour yourself a cup, get comfy. It's time for the Ultimate Coffee Date with our hosts Coco and Deborah! I'm shifting gears for this post--no running talk and no arthritis talk! Because...coffee talk! What would you tell me? What's new in your world?
If we were having coffee, I'd tell you how much I enjoyed the holidays with my family. My family has a running gag and over the holidays, it played out well! About 10 years ago, when I was working at a local hospital, I found a figurine of the king from Burger King. Do you remember him and those creepy commercials? It's so ugly, I figured no one would want it so I brought it home. Anyways, since then, we all take turns hiding him in each other's things. Whoever gets stuck with him has to hide him somewhere else, and so on. To paraphrase Johnny Cash, he's been everywhere. You never know where he'll pop up. My sister Lisa found him in her silverware drawer at Thanksgiving. On Christmas Day, he turned up multiple times--he was in someone's stocking, then in a gift bag, and then he disappeared. We received this text on New Year's Eve from my youngest sister:
If we were having coffee, I'd also tell you that there were some other family shenanigans--this one involving mustaches. It was pretty entertaining.
Now I know what my youngest son would look like if he had a mustache. Although I think a mullet would go nicely with this one.
|The 80s called; they want their mustache back|
|My refrigerator magnet|
He's only 19.
|Am I right?|
It's the last sip of coffee and I'd tell you that last night, local iconic weatherman Tom Skilling featured my picture on his weather segment! It's bitterly cold here and I shared my frosty selfie on his Facebook page. My 5 seconds of fame. I didn't actually see it. But several of my friends did and were kind enough to forward a screen shot to me.
What would you tell me over coffee? Sometimes it's nice to talk about other things besides running, right? Any funny family rituals or stories you want to share? Any mama brags? Does your dog like coffee? Ever been on the news? Do you do Stitch Fix? Want to try it? Use my referral code: http://stitchfix.com/referral/10340526
Besides the Ultimate Coffee Date, I'm also linking up with the Friday 5 v2.0, hosted by Fairytales and Fitness and Running on Happy.
