This morning I put on a blue v-neck shirt that I’ve been wearing for years. It’s always been just the right size. But today it felt tight. Really tight. And in my semi-conscious pre-coffee state I decided that I had officially become fat.
It was on my mind the whole day. When I chose lunch, I decided to go for the healthy salad option. I didn’t have my usual mid morning snack. And I resolved to start running more.
While walking on the promenade this evening Jared was eyeing me out with suspicion. Clearly he had noticed I had gotten fat too.
“Is that my shirt?” he said.
And it was 3 sizes smaller than my shirt.
And then we went and grabbed ice creams.
Stand up comedy
On an entirely different note, I’ve been contemplating doing stand up comedy for a while. I really enjoy telling stories and love the thrill of public speaking. So this evening I committed to doing a stand up comedy gig at some point this year. I’m going to try and find an open mic night or something and give it a go. Who knows, maybe I’ll be the second famous comedian by the name Rowan.
Image was taken post-ice cream. Holly, I know you’re reading this and I’m really sorry about the picture. You can shout at me next time you see me.
