Everybody's doing it.
Some times I am slow to jump on the latest trend. Some times I don't jump at all. Things I have not jumped on. * Tattoo. Have seriously considered it but feel I might be too old for this. * Toms Shoes can't see myself wearing these. * Crocs * iPhone. * Highlighted hair. * Words all over my house.You know those Love, Laugh Live, wooden ones. They are very popular but not me. * Watching Glee. Not that I am judging anyone that does any of the following things. I think the Tom's shoes are super cute, I think the iPhone is really wonderful but not for me. Ok so lets talk about running and these mud runs. You can't swing a cat and not hit someone doing a mud run or into running these days. What in the world is this about? I am happy for these women who have found something they love and that's good for them (the running) what makes them run in mud still puzzles me. But I am not going to take up running any time soon and I am not about to run into any mud either. I try to avoid mud at all costs. Zumba. I see and boy do I hear those hollering ladies at the gym in their zumba class. In there flashy green and orange clothes. Lined up. LINED UP! To get into the class. What in the world. It's letting your inner Shakira run wild. I get that. Go girl get your Zumba on. Ok and men in Zumba weirds me out a little. And while you're in there doing your best J.Lo have you seen the men on the outside looking in? They do you know. They "look" like they are doing a round of weights but they aren't. I see them watching you ladies jump around. No thanks. My dancing takes place at home in miss matched clothes. I dig the music when I hear it pumping through the gym walls and some times I think you all have hurt yourselves when I hear ya yelling. That would be my luck. I would pull something and no one would help me, they would just think I am really into my class. Nope you go girl. Get your sweat on. But there are some things I have joined. Like reading the whole Fifty Shades trilogy. Holy Smokey bed sheets those books are pretty wild. I know there is some debate about it being poorly written but seriously if you're reading it for a good piece of written material what were you thinking? It's pure entertainment. So I am one of those people now. It's Twilight for the older crowed. Set in Seattle. Brunette girl, copper haired guy. It's Audi's instead of Volvo's. I get it. It's a good summer read. So count me in. I think here I am in my 40's an finally accepted and have stopped trying to be in the in crowd and that's just fine by me.
