Today I took a vitamin.
I cannot even begin to share my joy with you that I finally remembered to. I bought them about 2 weeks ago and they have been sitting forlornly on my counter, giving me puppy-dog eyes whenever I walked in and out of the kitchen.
This evening, as I walked through the kitchen for the millionth time, I finally decided to open the package.
Horse pills, oh glorious horse pills. These were some seriously big multi-vitamins. And a sort of concentrated urine colour too. Not the most appetizing of appearances.
I choked that mother down and am feeling quite virtuous. I am a healthy mo-fo. (Or at least taking some baby-steps in that direction).
In my quest for other things that are virtuous, I found a few…
This quite interesting blog about thrifty living. And some cute tricks for putting together inexpensive decorations for the house…
I also discovered this wonderful book. ‘Virtuous Vampire’? How intriguing! To quote one reviewer “I loved The Virtuous Vampire. The heat and attraction between Abbie and the Alpha Male Lucan was hot and sexy.”
Hot and sexy. And apparently virtuous as well.
The more I googled about virtuous, the more it became clear that swallowing that vitamin maybe didn’t bring me quite to the level of virtuosity as these other women I ran into while surfing. A lot of Christians. Not that that is a bad thing, I was just surprised by the amount of passion for virtuous living and God. And breastfeeding.
I probably am not as virtuous as all these people espousing their love for God, clean and proper living (and behavior)… and, of course, breastfeeding.
Apparently I am on a different ‘virtuous life-style’ path. It’s a ‘eat lots of citrus fruit, drink decaf tea, takes horse-pill-sized vitamins, exercise almost, daily drink lots of water’ life path. With yoga. And no breastfeeding.
To each his own, eh? (that’s a bit of Canadian for ya’ll… and that’s a bit of the South too).
Off to finish my decaf and crawl into bed to virtuously write my Xmas cards…
