And so, in order to paint a clearer picture of this phenomenon, compare my tired old body to that of an old classic car (The Model T Ford will do) thrown right smack in the middle of a Nascar race. Yea, the old girl is tired, but she keeps on that gas pedal and makes those hairpin turns with an ease and class that can only come from a respected, well-oiled and solidly built machine. And she may not win the race, but what the hell, she was there for the ride……and it felt good.
Yes, going back to work did feel good, even though I’m the oldest person in my training class by at least 10 years, and I won’t be boss like I’m used to being, and I seriously do hate rising at 5 am. What felt good was being among people again, and realizing that I can hold my own with the young folks and some of them seem to like me quite a lot. I’m a cut-up just like online, but only when it’s appropriate.
What I have missed terribly, is writing. I miss the blog posts and reading your posts. Oh I get to some, but not nearly as many as before. I realize my schedule has to change somewhat, but I don’t want to lose the friendships I’ve made by writing my blog. So that’s why I’m sitting here writing instead of studying or getting to bed. I just needed to connect with you all again. I feel good here. I feel secure and welcome and if it hadn’t been for this blog and my readers/bloggy friends, the past year would have been very tough. So thank you for continuing to visit.
So what did I learn today? Well, you didn’t ask, but you should have because you wouldn’t believe what I actually learned. During our down-time, I learned that my prison bitch name is “Shirt Lifter”. I couldn’t very well disagree, I suppose, as that sounds like me. Yep, that’s what we did today, checked out the Prison Bitch Name Generator Website. It’s a little naughty, but really made for some fun laughs in class. Check it out and let me know what Your prison bitch name is. I’m waiting…….
So tomorrow is Friday. I can say TGIF and actually mean it for a change. I hope your Friday is Freaking Fantastic. Hugs all around from Terri Shirt Lifter Sonoda.
