Let me start this off by saying that I feel absolutely ageless. I’m 26 years old, and I don’t feel a day over 27.
Jk, but I think between the working out, and spending most of my summers with high schoolers, I’m kind of a young spirit.
But there’s something going on inside of me that indicates that I’m getting a little hold.
So, when I was training for my first marathon over a year ago, the Shamrock Marathon in VA Beach, I started “reading” books on tape, especially during my long runs when my partner, Jenny, couldn’t make it. During that time I tried to read some crappy book that my religion professor told me was good, I read Kathy Griffins memoir, and I read Tina Fey’s Memoir. All awesome. Like, falling-off-the-sidewalk-laughing-so-hard funny. Kathy Griffin surprisingly isn’t all piss and wind the way she makes herself out to be, she actually had some pretty sketchy things happen in her immediate family, suffered with binge eating, and suffered with a terrible end to a marriage. Tina Fey is perfect so…
So anyways, now that I’m not really training for much, I’m kind of in my groove where I run anywhere between 3-however many miles a day, and I discovered the best thing ever to help pass the time. I found comedians on Spotify.
My faves are obviously Tina, Chris Rock, and Kathy Griffin. (I can’t sand Chelsea Lately cause I think she’s not funny and really racist, and I hate that she has that little person running around her show like he’s some kinda of novelty item when he’s a human being.) But as I was listening to a Chris Rock album from about 2005, I could not help but be a little uncomfortable in response to some of the ubiquitous swearing.
Trust me, I can swear with the best of them. But my speech, in general, is not peppered with offensive words because I don’t want to sound like a dumb dirty idiot.
The older I get, the more offended I find myself getting with profanity, especially ubiquitous profanity just thrown in there for shits and giggles.
I kid. But anyone else starting to feel this way?
