Love Letter

Dear Mister Running Shorts:

We have been together for quite a long time now, and without a doubt you are my love. You have been with me through thick and thin (literally) and through all kinds of weather. I have always trusted you and you have never let me down.

Now all of a sudden, I sense a change in you. You are irritating me, rubbing me in all the *wrong* places and just generally being uncooperative. This would not concern me so much, if we did not have such an important rendezvous coming up where your attendance is required.

Your unwillingness to cooperate lately has left me considering other prospects. It is possible that Mr. Nike or Mr. Brooks may be stealing my affection. I would hate to leave you after all our time together, yet I have to look out for my own interests.

I need to know your intentions. Will you cooperate on Sunday and stay in your place? Will you promise not to be so rough with me? If I get you a new drawstring, will you promise not to threaten to slide down like you did last weekend? I need answers to my questions so I know how to proceed.

You are putting me in a tough situation so close to our special day. Would you please consider making some changes and returning to the way you were?

Sincerely,
Pokey


Monday run: 4.38 miles (3 miles with Lisa)

LOL! This is hysterical! But why is it that clothes do that?!? I have my shorts planned out for Disney two months from now. I hope I don't have to write them a letter like this!

It's like a full moon, you know? just when you need things to be safe and sane, everything goes completely haywire. Just don't break any mirrors between now and Big Sur!

Laura N said...

Sounds like you are getting smaller and Mr Shorts doesn't have as much to hang on to!

Pokey said...

Oh Laura, you are such a dear...I WISH that was the problem. Unfortunately, I think it is quite the opposite. :I

I'll be sure to keep you all posted how Mr. Adidas and I work things out. :)

And yes....I am all stocked up on body glide! :P

go buy yourself some new shorts. this is one area where you are allowed to play the field. mr. brooks, mr. nike and mr. adidas are all . . .

ok, this metaphor is way too dangerous for me.
