I set up shop at Dunkin’ Donuts this afternoon.
I took my car in to get new tires and walked across the street to study at Dunkin’ Donuts while the new tires were put on my car.
I’ve needed new tires for a while now, but a serious scrape that nearly punctured my front right tire when I parked
on too close to the curb last week motivated me to finally buy new ones.
After buying a latte as my toll for using the free internet at Dunkin’ Donuts, I opened my NASM textbook and got to work.
Today I had the pleasure of sitting near two women who were clearly discussing some kind of a pyramid scheme for the entire two plus hours I was there. (I honestly tried not to listen in, but they picked the table right next to me and were very loud. Plus, they had all sorts of fancy jewels displayed on their table. I had to look.)
I feel like I’ve heard an inordinate amount of pyramid scheme-esque business pitches while working at local coffee shops. Today the woman being pitched to hopped on board once she heard that she could make more than $15,000 a month. She even got a brand new bracelet out of the deal. Score!
Yesterday, on our evening walk with Sadie, I started telling Ryan about some unusual experiences I had while studying at the library yesterday. He assured me they were all very strange, so I obviously need to share them with you today. When I study, I am apparently a magnet for randomness.
The three most amusing people at the library yesterday included:
- A super sweaty guy that showed up in a gray t-shirt absolutely soaked in sweat. He dropped his bag on the chair across from me, lifted up his shirt, put on deodorant and plopped down at my table. Maybe he saw my personal training textbook and figured sweat and I get along?
- After the sweaty guy left, another man joined me. He cranked up his MP3 player, took the ear buds out of his ears and listened to extremely explicit rap aloud at our table. Now, I don’t mind a little cursing in my music, but playing music out loud at the library made me want to channel Lori Beth Denburg from All That and scream, “QUIET! THIS IS A LIBRARY!”
- A young nine(ish) year old boy sitting at the computer behind me let one rip. Loudly. No explanation necessary.
Needless to say, today’s study session at Dunkin’ Donuts wasn’t quite as amusing.
Once my car was ready and I packed everything up and drove home, I fixed myself lunch.
I made a tuna salad wrap that I ate with a serving of glazed pecans.
I’m hoping the rest of the day flies by because I have a fun evening planned with two of my girlfriends. Legally Blonde: The Musical is playing at our local community theater and we can’t wait to see Elle Woods sing her face off!
