Well I decided since it was raining and I had to do my run on the treadmill which I really dislike that I would wear my infamous 12's as my reward today. While I won't say that they're the perfect fit, I was able to get them up without wiggling or jumping or anything today and my husband (bless his lyin' heart) assured me over and over that they looked fine and great depending on which time I asked him. Feeling pretty good about it! When I gained my weight again this last time I missed them so much, I feel like I've been reuinited with a long-lost friend! We're bonding today.
Anyway about the snarky...I stopped to get a bag of ice at a local small convenience store and as I exited the building a woman was coming across the parking lot as I reached the door so I politely waited about 10 seconds for her to come and to hold the door for her. Because I'm nice like that. She brustled past me and didn't say a word. Now I was raised to be polite at all costs and didn't expect more than a rushed thank you, but she said nothing just walked on by even though I went above and beyond to hold the door for her. As she was about 5 steps away, I said, "You're welcome!" and smiled really really big. She turned and said, "Oh, I didn't say anything." I turned away and said, "Yeah I noticed, but you should have," and kept onna walkin'! I blame the jeans. They give me attitude.
So is this a good development or a bad one? As my bigger self, I do as much as possible to avoid conflict at all costs. I don't want attention! But now, my slightly smaller self has a pretty cocky voice at times apparently! Quite honestly, I surprised myself when I said it. It's something I would normally just think in my head and not do anything about, but today it just came out. Maybe it's confidence? Maybe I better shut it before I get beat up? I don't know but I'm just going with it today!
Remember your manners, people! I'm out there and I will call you out!!!
