It's Monday! Know what that means? Time again for Not Me! Monday. In case you haven't been introduced to Not Me! Monday, yet, here are a few details. This fun game originated with MckMama who is quite the busy woman! Here are the rules to playing, but in sum, you just list a lot of things you "didn't" (read: actually did) do this weekend/past week. All in the name of admitting that we all make mistakes and aren't perfect.
This past week...
I did not nearly run over a dog while his ten year old owner watched. (This was one of the top ten most terrifying moments of my life and it all happened in slow motion---the dog bounding into the road, me slamming on my breaks and skidding. I will always remember the look on the kid's face. I jumped out of my car, screaming if I hit the dog and the kid was like, no, he's ok. and the beautiful lab jumped all over me slobbering me with kisses. I was unbelievably happy he was ok. But, I'm pretty sure I aged ten years.)
I certainly did not squeal with delight, alarming the entire sushi bar, when my girlfriend I hadn't seen in over two years came into the restaurant.
I did not realize I was "too old" for a favorite college hangout when the music was excessively loud and I was screaming to carry on a conversation. I am only 22, I should not be annoyed by bars like that!
I did not spend over a half an hour in the card store looking for the perfect Valentine's Day card for Boy. No, I am more practical than that!
And I most definitely did not opt out of a family function to "do homework" and the moment everyone left the house, I did not put down my books and curl up to watch Soap Net. Nope, not me!
What didn't you do this week? Feel free to play along.
