That’s how I felt this morning after waking up with a hangover.
Of course, it was a bachelorette party. So it’s only to be expected, no? But still. I was looking forward to hitting up Tim’s (minus Tim) for led primary before heading home this morning. It didn’t work out.
However, I did get in two practices on Friday, which is something I’ll never do again. Mysore in the morning followed by Intro to Second later that afternoon is much too much for these ol’ bones to handle. Nope, I just can’t hang. Yesterday I was sore in places I didn’t even know existed before this weekend.
Julie was kind enough to let me crash on her couch Thursday night, and I made the mistake of rolling my mat out next to hers at the shala. 🙂 That Bad Lady needs to work on her driste! After spending 6 hours in the car the day before, I was tight and shaky. Beforehand, she approached The Australian and asked him to teach me TickTocks, and then told me “save your energy, you’ll need it.” It was a bit awkward, I had no idea what was coming. I’ve never even seen anyone do ticktocks before. I knew they involved handstands and backbends, but that’s about it. Tomorrow morning, I attempt them on my own. That should be a sight to see. Luckily, I’ll be alone.
After practice, we hit up Jimbo’s for the much needed caffeine fix, picked up The Daughter (Julie’s, not mine), and had our toes painted red. Oh, and I got a flower. My first ever toe flower. With a pink rhinestone in the middle. I swear, I get girlier by the day. Back to Jimbo’s for lunch, handstands with The Daughter, then off to the weekend-long Bachelorette party.
On the way home today, I pulled off the highway to get gas, and found a Whole Foods right at the bottom of the exit. I decided it might wake me up a bit if I got out of the car and walked around for a while. I was in the homeopathics, squatting down to see the products on the bottom shelf, looking for a hangover fix-up or something for my nausea. As I went to stand up, I fell back and ran into a poor, unsuspecting customer. Embarrassed and laughing, I stood up, apologizing. It wasn’t until I looked all the way up (he was very tall) that I realized that I had ran into Damon Wayans. I made a complete ass out of myself, stammering, stuttering, then I basically ran away. He was very sweet, asked if I was okay. “Yeah, thanks. I’m fine. Just not the most graceful person…”
I said goodbye, but then kept seeing him in every other aisle, I’d smile nervously, then run away. At one point he said, “we just keep running into each other.” I said, “Yeah, sometimes literally.”
I seriously wanted to die. Oh, and he was so cute in person!
