Here’s a little story about a weekend filled with ups and downs. Actually, I’ll do it in a list of Upsides and Downsides.
Downside: I fell down a flight of cement stairs outside the Elephant and Castle.
Upside: Because I fall down stairs often, I walked with my hands in front of me and was able to continuously grab on to the railing until finally I stopped tumbling.
Downside: No one but my friend Allison saw.
Upside: She put her hands out and yelled “We’re downtown on King and no one saw that?” and the guy waiting for a cab 4 feet away turned around and laughed.
Downside: My body hurts.
Upside: I got to sing some karaoke and then dance to some awesome 90’s tunes with some good friends.
Downside: I ruined my friends party.
Upside: She thought it was kind of funny and made many jokes at my expense. I’d like to blame the weather for no one attending.
Downside: Yep…there was three of us, then Kelly went home and there was two of us.
Upside: We had a lot of fun and were able to do exactly what we wanted to that night.
Downside: Went walking around looking for art and all we found was people.
Upside: We met up with old friends at the Stones Place.
Downside: The Stones Place was a sweat box – I had to take my sweater off and dance in my undershirt
Upside: We had the best dance party of all time, where at one point I was picked up and placed on the dance floor…
Downside: …only to have the drunk girl behind me grab my boobs and freak me out. But, I think this may have been an upside for our guy friends.
Upside: Melissa and I were getting spun around and dipped all night.
Downside: One of the guys dipped my head into the speaker and I have a welt on my head.
Upside: We had a group huddle-butterfly-interpretive dance going on.
Downside: Some of the single boys didn’t get that we were just there to have a good time.
Upside: I was picked up and strummed like a guitar. Yep that’s right. Our friend picked me up and played me like a guitar. It was so much fun, that Melissa and our other friend Steve strummed me too.
Downside: My wallet was stolen out of my purse. I went to pay for the cab, and there was no wallet in my bag. I loved my wallet. It was beautiful.
Extra Downside: It was the third time my wallet got stolen. The first two times were in high school in (one time at my own party…I know who did it too – those f-ers – and one time on the train).
Upside: Things happen in three’s, so god willing, this will be the last time my wallet will get stolen.
Downside: It’s really annoying trying to recover all your documents.
Upside: We had the best Sunday. Best Sunday equals: eating too much, going for a steam room and a hot tub.
Downside: The steam room made me feel sick.
Upside: My roommate brought us cupcakes.
Downside: My check engine light went off.
Upside: It was just my gas cap.
Downside: It cost $100 for them to tell me that. What’s that all about? They should have checked that before charging me the $100.
Upside: They figured out that my breaks were completely donezo. That check engine light, may have saved my life.
Downside: It’s gonna cost me big time to get my car fixed.
All in all, the weekend netted out to being OK – had a lot of really highs, and a lot of really lows. Anyway, as you can see, my karma is all out of whack and I’m not sure what I did to upset the world to make it lash out at me so ruthlessly…needless to say I’m exhausted, I want to go see a psychic and I think I’m living the life of a Bruce Springsteen song.
