Some more gems of wisdom

When you work from home by yourself most of the day, you start to genuinely enjoy watching Amanda Bynes' What I Like About You on ABC Family, and fantasize about being friends with her in real life. I wonder what she's up to these days..

You get so tired from walking back and forth to the post office all day, and don't understand why you don't just make a schedule so you only go once a day or, gasp, maybe every other day? Or maybe just have the mail man pick up the packages in the lobby....? No, too easy.

You are so so hungry but haven't gone grocery shopping in days because you can survive on frozen yogurt and popcorn (see previous post), and have settled for eating a "healthier" version of cinnamon toast crunch, even though you pretty much are positive that you are lactose intolerant. Listed. I tried almond milk. It's slimy and tastes funny and i DON'T LIKE IT. I LIKE MILK. I'LL TAKE THE TUMMY ACHE. (see previous post).

This is what you look like all day even when you venture into the world, because you forget to wash your hair sometimes (and by forget i mean consciously don't wash it). So you forget to look presentable for the world when you venture to the post office with a bag-lady push cart full of pillows and jewelry.

You also never smile when you are walking by yourself because WHO SMILES WHEN THEY ARE WALKING ALONE, and as a result, ever crazy man in the city tells you to smile. 

So, sometimes you pretend to tell yourself a joke, or pretend to remember something funny, and then you smile because of the ridiculousness of what is going on in your head. Remember, you don't actually think of a joke or of something funny that happened, you just pretend you are remembering. 

Check in tomorrow for more advice on running  a business!

  1. I am also indignant about the expectation of solo smiles.
