Tight Pants

What a day. I have been so uninspired lately which really makes no sense. I am feeling stronger and the sun has been shining so in theory I should be bursting with energy. Except I am not. Today I really had to iron a bunch of clothes but I laid on the couch, farted around on the computer and chatted on the phone instead. ALL DAY!!! The only thing that inspired me to get up, get dressed and get out was to drive through the take-out window of Wendy’s for a large Frostie. I REALLY needed a Frostie. Like NOW.

I treat PMS like a mugging. Just do what it says and nobody will get hurt.

Dammit. Now I want a freaking Frostie. (Of course, it's after midnight here. And, of course, I'd be too lazy to go get it even if they were open.)

Sharkey said...

Kalki, don't you watch the commercials? Most Wendy's are open until 1 AM or later! Now go! :)

Kranki, I totally know how you feel. For some reason I've been having the blahs lately too, and it's got nothing to do with PMS. However, my antidote of choice (which come to think of it hasn't worked so far) is a DQ Blizzard. J.P. and I are now hooked on the banana cream pie flavor. As long as we can get ice cream like that, bring on the blahs!

can't fight those pms cravings....it is far better to give in and ask no questions.

Amen to that. PMS is the official un-dooer of any good intentions.

kassi said...

At first when I read your post,I thought you wrote that you farted on the couch all day.

Which is perfectcly acceptable as well, especially during PMS season.

Yay for Frosties. I think I need to get me one.

Squirl said...

Frosties! I haven't had one it years.

Yeah, I have to admit I thought the same as Kassi, but then I realized you wouldn't write that. Well, I hope. (You wouldn't write that, would you?)

I want ice cream now.

eclectic said...

HA! Even when you're not feeling your best you make me laugh -- that's some kind of gift you've got, dearie!

kerri anne said...

I was with Kassi too, on the farting misunderstanding. And I giggled, and thought: awesome. Still awesome, even though no farting. Well except the PMS mugger part. But the frosty part, mmmm boy.

It's best not to mess with the PMS. What does Yoshi think of all the farting? My cat usually looks at me like I've morphed into a demon.

Everyone needs a day to catch their breath every now and then! And a "Frostie"!!

I agree about PMS. And cramps. Appease them, because resistance is futile.

sheryl said...

I always crave salty stuff instead of sweet stuff. Like plain sea salt. On tomatoes or on boiled eggs. I know, it's a weird pms craving.

Hope your pants are feeling loose again, and the blahs have given way to feelings of a tad more spring-y-ness.
