#926: Get a flu shot

I was going to get a flu shot last year. Every year before that, I thought, wait, there’s a chance I could get sick from the vaccination? Okay, nope. That’s not because I’m any sort of wimp but just because I know my immune system: lazy.

#925: See Zootopia

Two things to know about this movie:

  1. The title reminds me of the word zoologist, which reminds me of a high school science teacher who harped on the correct pronunciation of zo-ologist, not zoo-ologist, and while I know he’s right, I will never understand why that has to be the case. It sounds so much better the zoo way.
  2. The fact that it’s taken me so long to finally see a movie I really wanted to see might begin to show how I can have made it so far in life without having seen classic films. Not why, but at least how.

The thing to know about this movie that may actually interest you is a whole other point. Read the rest of this entry »

#924: Don’t do aqua boot camp

Technically, yes, I have done this before. Every other day of my life.

But last night, I was supposed to actually do aqua boot camp.

When I arrived at the rec center, some of the women informed me that they’d been told the instructor didn’t show up, so there would be aqua zumba again. Fine. I’d left work before the work was done (which is what I do every day these days) specifically to make it to aqua boot camp, but after the week this country’s had, I don’t think I had the grounds to feel too sorry for myself.

So I decided to stay for aqua zumba. Read the rest of this entry »

#923: Vote in pajamas

When things are going really badly for me, it helps to think about the concept of the multiverse.

I don’t know that I even believe it’s a theory that could be accurate; it certainly sounds too complicated for most regular human brains to comprehend.

#922: Yo-Burger

According to many reviewers of this place in the Bronx, it’s a combination between Shake Shack and In-and-Out.

I can’t speak to its In-and-Outness, since the one and only time I’ve been to the California chain was about a decade ago, but Yo-Burger does resemble Shake Shack in its prices. Read the rest of this entry »

#921: Aqua Zumba

I’ve never even done regular Zumba, so what made me think I would be prepared for a water version in the middle of my second week at what is already the busiest, most exhausting job I’ve ever had, I don’t know.

Walking down the stairs to leave work, I decided I wouldn’t go. I was too tired. I was coming down with a cold. I needed to respect my body’s wishes and just go home and relax.

But then I realized that if I started down this slope, the steep one of only doing things when I felt like doing them, there was a very good chance I would never encounter a chairlift back up. Read the rest of this entry »
