Thanks everyone for the insights into why I am having a “case of the Rundays.” Heh. Get it? Anyway, I am going to chalk it up to the weather and being overly cautious.
My medium long run today was tough. I think I went out too fast as I often do and felt pretty winded by mile 4. But, like a good runner, I kept on keepin’ on and finished that bad boy. Seven miles in the bank beeches!
During my run at the exact same place where the egg throwing incident occurred, I passed many kids at bus stops this morning. One group was barely talking and was made up of mostly well dressed tween girls. Yet another group seemed to be mostly boys wearing camo jackets. Odd.
As I got up to another I saw a small group of girls huddled close and behind them about three boys throwing what appeared to be acorns at them. I instantly flashed back to being a girl at the bus stop. I remember being hit with little rocks and annoyed by stupid boys as we waited for the hot cheese wagon. God did that suck. You couldn’t pay me to go back to middle school.
As I ran by, the acorn bandits decided to try their luck at hitting me with the acorns. I love kids. Not. Wouldn’t you know it? These little f*ckers couldn’t throw for sh!t. As the acorns fell around me, I chuckled and yelled over my shoulder, “You throw like a girl!”
Yes, that is how mature I am.
At my yelling the girls started laughing and telling them “Ha ha! She said you throw like a girl!” Victory was mine after all these years.
Today, I am thankful for being an adult (who just acts like a child sometimes).
What are you thankful for today?
Boys are dorks! Then again, so are most men… Guilty! Although I don't throw anything at women except perhaps a side ways, smokey glance every now and then.
BAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA greatest story EVER! LMAO!!!!!!
AWESOME! Serves those little buggers right. They won't live it down.
Today I'm thankful for: moisturizer! My skin is so dry since returning from FL. Our air must not be nearly as dry around here. Ouchie!
Awesome – that made my day! I had a boy throw a mud ball at me once.. and some other kids throw gravel at me while walking home – I have no idea why… I wasn't a total dork or mean…
That was an awesome and inspiring story. 🙂 I love making annoying middle school a-holes feel like idiots.
Now I have to practice my throwing, so I never hear that….
I would go back to college and pre-grade school…all other ages no thanks!
I am thankful for red wine and acting childlike, at times.
I miss the innocence of childhood–feeling free, completely uninhibited in meeting people and eating whatever you want-whenever you want. Although, running does help that habit.
LMFAO! You had a small victory for all bullied girls! I am too, am just a girl in an adult body. Shhhh, don't tell anyone 🙂
Too funny! I would have thrown an acron back…but then one of their parents probably would have tried to sue me. Name calling was the way to go!
Ha ha ha ha! I'd give anything to have been there to see you put those little punks in their place! Nice job, B.o.B.!
Today I am thankful for the rising temperatures outside. Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!
I work in a middle school and could have an entire blog just about their antics! I also would never want to go back! This story is great and I sure am glad they had no aim!!
Today I am thankful that tomorrow is Friday!
KICK A$$! Hilarious! I love being a "childish" adult sometimes too! Ha ha! Way to go on that 7. 🙂
All of us girls need to stick together! Good for you for showing those little punks who had the upper hand:)
Today I am thankful very sore muscles….it means that I actually gave them a good workout:)
I'm thankful that I can still walk despite my gimpy ankle!
You might want to watch yourself the next time you run by there! They might decide to work on their aim!!
You have such restraint. I would of picked an acorn up and lobbed over there and threw it at one of them point blank and likely got an officer called on me or something. I hate children. Especially of that age.
You've never seen me throw an acorn! LOL They'd be happy if they could throw like a girl like me. 😉
Hey! I bet those were the same boys that I confronted (yes, 30-something year old confronting middle-school boys) about bullying one of the other boys and yes, throwing acorns. Damn it, man!!! I'll be back there tomorrow morning with a vengence!
haha, I like your comeback!
nice job bOB
I know this is another fun fact about me that will make you laugh, but when I was in middle school, I wouldn't put up with anything from the boys. It helps that I hit my growth spurt early and was bigger than most of them (what happened?). I'd totally stand them down or hit back and had some choice insults that they didn't know the meaning of! 🙂
WTG B.O.B.! You show them!
Hehe.. mom always said if a boy hit me they liked me. How messed up is that, and at what age does that change?
Thankful for a good right knee.. damn you left knee
