They're All Going to Laugh at Me

So, I'm feeling extremely motivated today.

I actually woke up this morning half an hour early and did the treadmill for half an hour before getting in the shower. Yeah... Not even kidding. I watched a TiVo-ed episode of Scrubs and burnt about 300 calories. Way to start the day, yeah?


Because of the workout, I'm in a great mood at work today. Being extremely productive (excluding this time that I'm blogging, but this is technically my lunch time) and getting lots done.


I spent the morning doing work outside of my office and decided to stop at Subway to get a healthy lunch. I opted for the turkey wrap (to save the calories from the actual b
read).

Because I was in such a great mood, I was joking around with the workers at Subway. There wasn't anyone else in the store, they were giving me trouble for not being able to decide what I wanted, I was giving it right back to them... They asked me why I didn't want cheese on my wrap and I explained how stoked I was that I actually got up and exercised before heading to work. They laughed (okay, they humored me) and sent me on my way.


As I exited the restaurant, I noticed a quarter on the ground. My day was getting even better. First of all, I never notice money on the ground. Second of all, if it is a penny, nickle, or even a dime, I don't waste my time bending over. But, for a quarter, today, why not?


And... the quarter was superglued to the sidewalk.


I straightened myself up and held my head high as I walked to my car. I didn't look back at the quarter or the restaurant. I could just imagine those Subway workers laughing their @$$es off at the dumb chick who fell for the ol' coin superglued to the ground trick.

Serves me right for being in a good mood...

because of this post, I am not going to go downstairs and walk on the treadmill. Really, I am.

I love that old superglued quarter gag.

I'm so confused. Getting up early, EXERCISING...got you in a GOOD mood? The "e" word usually makes me crabby, getting up early doubles that. hmmmm. freakyweird. But yea for you!!

Blogarita said...

Me? I'd probably have gone to the van and found something to pry that quarter up with. LOL!

Exercising makes me feel better too, can't wait to get back at it.

I always pick up change off the floor, even pennies so I guess I would have gotten caught in the superglued quarter joke too.

Blogarita took my comment. I would have done the same thing. I'd have come back with a tire iron and pry that sucker up and put an end to their fun.

Then maybe I would even go back in the store and smack a couple of them around...

Damn - I thought that shite only happened to me...

Screw those mean, stupid Subway guys.

I'm afraid I would have rented a jackhammer to rain on their little parade.

have you ever seen the 'dollar on a retracting string' trick? my niece thought it was hilarious pulling such foolishness on all the unsuspecting folks at disneyland.
