WTF Wednesday, Robin needs a parrot

I was getting dressed to go for a run today and as I put my Adidas tank over my New Balance bra the thought occurred to me that maybe New Balance and Adidas might not like that.

I mean, I’m brand loyal but I wear what works for me when I run and that can be anything from an Adidas tank and Nike shorts over a Brooks bra or whatever.  I love Under Armour socks and I wear them under my Mizuno’s and my Brook’s shoes, but are they happy about it?

Do you think maybe my New Balance sports bra said to the Adidas tank, ‘you’re touching me’.  And then the Adidas tank said to the sports bra, ‘no, you’re touching me.’

stop touching me

STOP TOUCHING ME!

Maybe that’s what happens when I have a bad run, my clothes are fighting.

Do you think Nike would be pissed if they saw me running down the street in their shorts and an Adidas tank?  Would Under Armour care if they knew I covered up their socks with MIzuno Wave Rider 21’s?  It’s enough to drive a person crazy….

Did y’all see the photo the nature photographer, Doc Jon took in Madeira Beach?  He took a photo of an osprey and later when he zoomed in, he realized the osprey had a shark and the shark had a fish.  It’s amazing.

A few weeks ago sister in law texted me a photo of a letter my niece had written to her and her husband.  I shared it on instagram and meant to post it here but forgot.  Here is the letter in it’s entirety.

For the record, she’s eight years old and she deserves all the parrots in the world because that letter is everything.

WTF, it’s Wednesday!

The right to bear arms, in yoga pants.

Alexo Athletica has really cute clothing.  I like their yoga pants and jackets a lot.

Not that we need jackets all that much in Florida but when I do need a jacket, I could see myself wearing this brands line.  As I said it’s really cute.

Right?

Can you imagine out on the running trail or heading off to yoga class and wearing this outfit?

Active carry

I can.  But as cute as the Alexo Athletica brand is, it also serves a purpose.  Alexo Athletica is the very first Active Carry wear.

From the website:

“Alexo will never back down from supporting a woman’s right to choose how she defends herself while striving to bring the best in fashionable, functional active carry-wear to the market.”

Now I know I’m going to open a can of worms here but many of you reading this already know that MacGyver and I own a little piece of land out in the middle of Florida somewhere and on that land we built our own shooting range.  We own guns and we like to shoot them and I feel safer knowing that I have one for protection, should I ever need it.  This doesn’t mean that I’m not in favor of stricter gun laws because I am.  I am 100% in favor of stricter gun laws.

That being said, I think the pocket in my yoga pants is best used for a phone and my heavy duty pepper spray though I wont say I wouldn’t use it to hold my gun while out at my property and practicing at my range.  I’m just not so sure I would ever feel comfortable running with a gun.  I’d be afraid I’d accidentally shoot myself because I’m that clumsy.

That being said, I think it might be useful for say, trail running in remote areas or running in the mountains or deserts where there may be snakes.  It might also come in handy running in Alaska or someplace where the danger of an animal such as a bear is a reality.  Come to think of it, I’d probably use that gun pocket running anywhere around my remote property because we do have a lot of coyotes and rattlesnakes and other wildlife that could really mess a person up.

When I first saw the ad for this company my immediate feeling was that they will probably hear a lot of backlash.  A lot.  But I like the idea.  Why not?  For those of us who believe in the right to bear arms and those who actually have a carry permit, why not?  That doesn’t mean I’m not interested in hearing other opinions though.  I’m always curious about what other people think.

So let’s open the discussion.

What do you think of this active wear line?

Would you carry a weapon in the pocket or would you buy the clothes to carry other things, such as a phone in the pockets?  (I think this is what I would mainly use them for but I’m all about big ass pockets in my active wear and that’s hard to come by.)

WTF Wednesday, I need to get out more.

I work from home so naturally after I workout in the morning, I walk the dogs, shower and then put on nice comfortable workout clothes.  Why should I bother putting on dress clothes when I sit in the lazy boy on the computer for most of the day?  It’s pointless.

However yesterday, I had an appointment with a client scheduled for 2PM so I had to actually put on makeup and fix my hair and put on real dress clothes.  Then, an hour before I was supposed to leave, the client called to reschedule.

you serious

So then there I was with a freshly made up face and hair and nice clothes and it was wasted.  WASTED!  So, I had to go somewhere because it’s protocol, you just cannot waste a made up face and hair and dress clothes.

So, I decided to take a quick trip up to the dollar tree because well, why not.  I can always justify a trip to the dollar tree.

When I walked in the girl behind the counter said ‘Oh you look nice, did you get a blow out?’  And I thought, do I look like I’m having car trouble?  And then I said, ‘No my tires are fine.’

It didn’t dawn on me what they meant until I was around the corner and I heard her and the other cashier giggling and then I realized they were talking about my hair.

duh

But wait, what is called when your tire pops?

WTF it’s Wednesday and obviously I need to get out more!
