Not to mention the fact, this week's topic: Top 3 Favorite Outdoor Activities.
Um...I'm what one might describe as "indoorsy."
It's not that I'm so indoorsy that I don't like getting dirty or hot or blah, blah blah...I just like central air better. I don't dig the water sports; I was 10 the last time I fished (and that was with a cane pole); I've never been camping; And I'm not crazy about laying out because well, I'd have to be in a bathing suit and sweat uncomfortably for three hours.
I think I'd enjoy hiking if I ever lived near a big park or nature trail (Demetri Martin time out: Hiking is just walking where it's ok to pee. Sometimes old people hike by mistake. Time in.), but I don't and I haven't, so it can't go on the list.
I tell ya what, the one thing I've thought about most since the weather's gotten so pretty--so go ahead and reconsider this post "Top 1 Friday"--is kicking off my shoes, walking barefoot in the grass and flopping on the ground to stare at the clouds, like when we were kids. I want to pick dandelions and watch ants. I want to flatten out an old refrigerator box and slide down a big hill. Honestly, that's what I want to do. That's it. Roll around in the grass like a dog. But I can't. Because I'm a grown woman and people would look at me strangely.
Carl and Ellie did it. Why can't I? Oh gosh...think I'm gonna cry just thinkin about C&E. *Sniffles*
Oh well, maybe this will act as the jump start to my "Live Like You're a Kid Revolution." We'd all be a lot happier. And covered in grass stains. How is that not awesome?
