Can't Be Late Already!

I have fired my running partner! Two days in a row, and she hits the "dismiss" button on her cell phone. I'm up and ready to go. She's just not a morning person and it's also her turn to pick me up. Well, I drive regardless of who's car it is while she does the girly make-up thing on the way, anyway.

It's 6:40 a.m. and she's not at my house. What's up with that? She finally shows up at 7:00 a.m. and I'm about to get into the passenger side when she says, "You're not gonna drive?" We switch, and I head off with three women in the car.

Maybe this isn't a good idea. I tell her that I'm breaking up with her and she just stares at me. The girls in the back look at us. You can break-up with a friend, you know! everyone laughed. Just then, I get a text message that made my day: "Good Morning Sunshine :)" As you will learn, simple things keep me happy. A second later, she asked who it was. I responded that it was a friend that knows what's on my mind as of late.


Are you a morning or night person?

Why would she need makeup to go running?

She is totally fired.

Night, night, night.

This is mostly because I teach night school, and so my work day ends at 9:30 PM many days. Early morning is quiet, but there's a tension in the quiet because my busy day is about to start. The quiet of nighttime is relaxing - an "all done" sort of quiet.

LOL...After the run, she showers and gets ready. But the make-up she does in the car.

Kate: That's why I like running at night. It's soo quiet, all I hear are my footsteps, and breathing...uh, and the dog :)

Lynn said...

Anyone ever tell you that you're cute?

Sam said...

Lynn: Uh...when I was a kid. Now, they just say that I'm a pain in the A$$. :)

I'm a night person...totally!!! I used to hate the morning, but now I'm learning to like them more since we have lots of morning activities with the kids. I'm just trying to learn to go to bed before 1:00 am and it's HARD!!!

MB said...

So, when you're notoriously a "late" person...how do you change that??? Hypnosis???

Arlene said...

Make up? To run? That hurts my head...just a little ;-)
As for the up running early part, I would have never signed up to begin with :-P

definitely not a morning person. I have aerobic classes in the mornings only on friday, rest of the days I got it in the evening. Its a tough job waking up even though its just once a week!

I love walking my dog at night. Its beautiful, peaceful and the moon of course!! :)

I used to be a morning person, but of late, I am very much a night person.

Regardless.. you don't treat friends like that, so you have every right to break up with her.

Even though I'm not a runner, I hike and camp and as a woman, you just don't wear make-up to do those things!

BTW.. Hi! haha. I'm Judy :)

Sam said...

Hi Judy...Welcome.

Let me guess, puzzles and crypto?

:)

Lynn said...

oh I'm a morning person. Wait. A night person.
