Enigma, conundrum, duty (cause it just sounds funny!), and echelon.... These are some of my favorite words... they always make me laugh! Some say it has something to do with simple-mindedness (haters), same say it has something to do with being easily entertained (relatives), I say I just like to laugh and for some reason these words just make me giggle... well enigma was defiantly my word for the day.

Most of the girls I work with and a lot of my best friends say that my favorite word is, "what?" (With a head tilt to the side -- I never noticed it till they pointed it out). I usually am either the last one to know, or just have no clue I am supposed to know something I need to know. Well, today I felt like I was "what-ing" a lot. Every time I turned around, I felt like I was walking in on a deep convo and I had to know (but was supposed to already know -- again of course I didn’t). Then at the gym this evening several "what’s??" came together all at once...

Let me privies my story by saying I just created the BEST running playlist on my iPhone and could not wait to run to it... But, as my close friends know, I have a very eclectic taste when it comes to music. My playlist varies from rap, to country, to 80's and sprinkled with a little Frank Sinatra and Harry Connick Jr. So when I stepped up on the treadmill and excitedly pressed "shuffle" on my new playlist I was not sure what to expect first. Well, I should have checked to make sure that my headphones where firmly placed in the sound jack of my phone before pressing play, because all of a sudden you can hear "Nelly's" voice booming through the cardio area of my gym! Then about 7 seconds in, about the time it took me to reach for my phone to frantically to push the plug in and turn it down, Nelly dropped the F-Bomb.... classy! I got a lot of looks from men and women and even a snicker from an employee giving a new member tour... SCORE ONE FOR ME!! haha!! Well, I at least thought it was funny... However, the rest of the time I was on the treadmill people kept looking at me. I hope it was for my musical faux-pau... but I am not completely convinced, a few people who were not in the cardio section would even walk by me and look... so of course the rest of my warm up on the machine I checked my jack about 20 more times to make sure it was snug and no one could hear!

Now to the highlight of my day! This morning, I put on a pair of pants I had bought but had never worn. They are a size smaller than I have been currently wearing, but hopped to fit into one day... drumroll please... THEY FIT!!! And not crazy tight either!!! I am soooo excited! Now the pants are crazy long because I never got to take them to the tailor because I couldn’t zip them up... Well guess where I am going this week?! Whoop Whoop!!!
