We're Always Ready for a Good Time. Obviously.

A conversation I had with John Hamm the other day via text. I think It's important to note the time of day. It wasn't even noon yet.  JH: Two things: One, check Twitter. Two: You're welcome.

Picture 1

Me: One: I just saw it. Two: Thank you. Three: Come to the book shop. We have a really awesome graphic novelist here at 1:00.

JH: Hmmm... maybe. I have yet to change out of my yoga pants and go buy Citron Vodka.

JH: And shower. That too.

Me: Okay. He's here until 3.

JH: Okay. I love that "buy vodka" is at the top of my to-do list and this is a normal conversation for us.

Me: ...Is that not normal for other people?

JH: If it's wrong, I don't want to be right.

And This is Why You Shouldn't Have a "Family Chiropractor"

A conversation I had with my chiropractor this week: Him: Hey, so how are you feeling? Back is okay? Neck is okay?

Me: Yeah, it's all doing okay, except I got one of my migraines a few days ago, but it was the first day that it had rained in a while, so I think it was from the pressure drop.

Him: Yeah, that makes sense. Did it go away on its own?

Me: Sure... I mean, I took a couple Advil and then drank a bunch of --

Him: --vodka?

Me: What? No! Water and coffee... and that helped.

Him: That doesn't sound like you... I'm kidding!

Me: Eh, you know me too well.

And then we laughed in a freeze-frame moment while the credits rolled.

I'm kidding, but we did laugh, because he was totally just joking around with me. Kind of.

Either way, I'm choosing to be proud of the fact that I surprised him with my healthy choices, instead of concerned by the fact that he's surprised by them.

Because I'm an optimist.
