Let’s catch up on my day today, shall we?
It was pretty uneventful until the afternoon. That’s when my boss’s boss’s (a VP) daughter came in to visit me. She’s 13 years old and comes into the office a lot after school and on days off so I know her pretty well. She’s always hungry so when she saw some Environkidz rice crispy-esque things sitting on my desk she asked if she could have one. I had brought them in with the intention of putting them in the giveaway pile in the kitchen since I wasn’t a fan.
Well, she opened it up, took a few small bites, and then noticed that there were maggots all over it! Yep, I fed my boss’s boss’s daughter a contaminated rice crispy treat. She handled it pretty well for a 13 year old girl, there was lots of spitting and rinsing her mouth, but no real panic. Honestly, she probably handled it better than I would have. After she recovered she went and told everyone. Her mother came in and all she said, in what I’m pretty sure was a joking tone, “Bad career move, Maggie.”
We took a picture of the maggots and then my old boss called the company that makes them. We sent them the bar, the wrapper, a maggot, an unopened bar from the same box, and a strongly worded letter. God willing they do not send more bars. Perhaps a nice cash settlement? I told the daughter I would give her the money. I obviously felt awful.
Next I went to Trader Joe’s on my way home from work. I spent more than $40. My spending on food this week isn’t good. But I bought an $8 box of Emergen-C, a $6 thing of Olive Oil, and a $5 thing of maple syrup. So it would have been $30 without that stuff, all of which will last me for a while.
I had originally planned on going to the gym tonight and doing something non-impact, but that sounded boring so I instead decided that I would do the run I didn’t get to do last night because my ankle was swollen. Now my ankle is still swollen, but it hasn’t been bothering me at all today. So I went running (temperatures in the high-20s, wind chills in the single digits, it was FREEZING) and it was a great run. Here are my splits:
- Mile 1: 9:51
- Mile 2: 9:24
- Mile 3: 9:17
- And the .1: 0:54
Not my fasted, but considering the weather conditions and the swollen ankle I was pretty happy. And my ankle doesn’t hurt and it’s no more or no less swollen.
I’m heating it now and I’m about to go stretch. Then it’s off to bed for me. Certainly not an exciting night but I have a busy rest of the weekend so I thought I’d take it easy tonight.
