After a meager decade of running, I was reminiscing to a fellow runner I just met at the Destin 50 miler about all those various pieces of gear I've purchased to hold my water bottle so I can trot happily down the road. And yes, I like to reminisce with people I don't know. Granted, it takes longer.
in my limited experience as a pregnant person, i've started to notice some recurring patterns in the things people do to me since i started growing a person inside of me. and naturally, i started to realize how hysterical some of them were (at least to me, they might not be funny to you at all, now that i think about it)....more

I was 95% certain for about 10 minutes the other day that I killed Travis. Normally, before he leaves work everyday he sends me a text that he's leaving. And I ALWAYS pay attention to the time.
