I'd like to say that I was totally self-reliant individual that is able to process information and make unbiased decisions. But, I can't. I consistently do stupid things, because all of my friends are doing it. Would I jump off a bridge if everyone else did? Maybe. But, only if all the cool kids were doing it.
Currently, I am doing a detox. My detox is a lot less strict that my roommate's or some of my other friends, but it pretty much sucks. I'm avoiding sugar, caffeine, alcohol, and dairy. Do you know what my four favorite things are? Sugar, caffeine, alcohol, and dairy.
I have been on the detox since Ash Wednesday, so my life is been pretty boring. Recently, in order to spice up my living...I decided that I would go shopping on Saturday to purchase a costume for my 80s Retox party next Saturday.
As I was trying on clothes at the Goodwill, I asked some family members to send some ridiculous 80s pants/shorts to Denver. Because, and I'm not joking or ironic when I say this, the Goodwill is too classy to have lots of tacky stuff.
Their response, "I have some 80s turquoise shorts." The word booty and ridiculous was left out of the description, but I knew the ones that were being discussed. As we were talking, I found another pair of shorts and said not to worry. The response? "Thank goodness, I still wear them." Gotta love family, right?
After purchasing some amazing 80s clothes, I decided that I would go to TJ Maxx to look for tube socks. My parents decided to text me 80s fashion trends throughout the entire day. Nothing says love like a text message that says "Miami vice blazers" or "headbands." But, "tube socks" was one that I felt appropriately paired with the sick nasty green running shorts that I found.
What did I leave with from TJ Maxx? About $70 worth of kitchen supplies, most of them revolving around baking. I'm not 100% sure why I bought all of it, but my knife set was $35. I think that's a grown-up bargain. Grown ups need things like knife sets, right?
The most concerning about this whole detox thing (other than baking supply overpurchases) is that I have already lost 5 lbs and my stomach is super tight, not cut, just tight. Gah. I am not a healthy person.
Also, tube socks are friggin' impossible to find.
