Idle Threats


Of all the people to criticize my adipocytic indiscretion, you’d think Grace would have the decency to give a girl the benefit of a lapse. The gym. On Monday. We’ll see how many laps she’s made of.

Did Grace say that, too? is the question for   My answer: 29

  1. My weeks are chock full of adipocytic indrections, and on that note - I'm going out for a long walk! ;)

    1. Hehe I kinda liked indrections. Long walks, I wish they did something other than make my feet hurt.
      Thanks, Karen!
