it’s been a long time since i linked a post up in general, but especially since i linked one up with amber’s coffee date series. so, if we were on a coffee date…
…i would be drinking my ubiquitous venti iced vanilla chai tea latte. about a year and a half ago i was out with friends at a coffee shop. i had a cold, but didn’t want coffee since it dehydrates you, so thought about getting a smoothie. the barista suggested an iced chai instead (because of all the sugar in the smoothie) and i have been addicted ever since.
…i would tell you i went camping two weekends ago. this is notable because i have never camped before, nor have i ever wanted to. I true ironic fashion, i woke up the first morning after a night of sleeping on the ground and felt better than i have in a long time. I might be pitching a tent in front of my apartment and sleeping on the ground for the rest of the summer because my mattress is clearly not cutting it.
…i would tell you i played an intense game of soccer on this camping trip and couldn’t walk properly for three days thereafter. but i would also tell you it feels just as good to score in a pickup game as it did when I played in high school. and that was a moment i will cherish for a long time to come.
…i would tell you i haven’t read hardly anything since july 26. I’ve been reading like a fiend all spring and summer, so not to be reading regularly feels unnatural. i’m in the middle of a fictional account of pocahontas and the english settlers of jamestown, which is really good, but it’s not written at the pace i’m craving just now.
…i would also tell you the reading situation isn’t likely to improve at all, because olympics. i DON’T have nine books out from the library and this is NOT going to be a problem at all.
…we would have to talk about the olympics. y’all. THE OLYMPICS. i love them. i watched bits of nearly everything this weekend. my favorite events are gymnastics, diving, track & field, and beach volleyball. for once in my life i am actually paying attention to olympic soccer. i’m also hoping to catch some of basically everything else.
…i’d tell you how much i love the olympic-themed commercials for united airlines, visa, and coca-cola. so much, y’all. so much.
…i’d ask you if you’ve seen the commercials for timeless on nbc, and doesn’t it look good?
…what would you tell me?
