Yesterday I ate a pulled pork sandwich. And onion rings. A whole stack of onion rings. Literally, they were stacked on top of each other. I was in a “restaurant” that was devoted to MEAT. It felt more like a theme park, actually. Somehow I refrained from riding the mechanical bull. But I still have that god-awful “Cotton-Eyed Joe” song stuck in my head.
Following my meaty meal, I killed three black widow spiders. Well, two were black widow spiders… the other one was just guilty of having eight limbs.
And I do not have eight limbs. And my yoga definitely does not have eight limbs currently. I’m definitely lacking with that Yama one. And the Asana one, as I have not made it to my mat once this week. And the ego is definitely present. As evidence, I submit the following internet chat conversation which took place yesterday (names have been changed to protect the innocent):
me: oooooo i just got my “participants list” for my Tim Miller teacher training.
but you aren’t on it!
5:03 PM “Innocent Friend”: is that the other teachertrainers that you’ll be competing with in a total yoga-ashtanga-vinyasa 8-limbed smackdown for Who Wants to Be an Ashtangi
i’m totally gonna take ’em down.
“Innocent Friend”: sweeeet. my money’s on you
5:04 PM me: except my friend vanessa… she’ll be a challenge.
she’s up to dwi pada sirsasana in second series.
she’s a total ashtanga superstar.
and she has a sexy accent.
“Innocent Friend“: take her down. seriously. do what ever you have to do.
cut out her tongue
5:05 PM me: lucky for me, my friend tiffany recently backed out of the competition.
5:11 PM me: i’m trying to find a picture of tiff…
“Innocent Friend”: what are you taking it yourself?
me: you are SO FUNNY
luckily she dropped out.
“Innocent Friend“: i agree
me: so i don’t have to beat her at the bendy game.
“Innocent Friend”: so let’s work on that accent… hee hee
So as you can see, it’s a good thing I have this teacher training coming up.
I’ve got a lot to work on.
