Grrr. I made the mistake of thinking I'm beating the MS and not subject to that horrible limping anymore. So, I decided that I would walk to the mall with four of my guy co-workers. They wanted to either go shopping or hit the food court while there. I thought it would be a nice little walk and that I'd be back fairly shortly. WRONG.
It was a very nice walk there, and I sat and had fun chatting with the three guys who picked up food at the food court. It was a very nice time and it was great to be away from the office during lunch for a little while. That almost never happens, we usually all work through lunch. I didn't eat at the food court because I brought my lunch and it was waiting for me back at the office, already counted. :)
The guys wanted to go shopping at various stores after they ate. Oh boy. More walking. I held up fine for a bit, then decided I needed to head back to the office without them. Who would have guessed that guys would be slow picky shoppers just like girls. I thought all guys were get-in-get-out sorts. Not so for creatives I guess. :P
I'm not the greatest navigator so I had them point out the direction of the office before I headed back. By the time I wound my way back to the ground floor of the mall and found the door out I was totally unsure of which direction to go.
I took a guess (a wrong guess) and walked a block to the north rather than the correct direction which was east. I was limping by the time I finished that block and realized I wasn't heading the right way. So then I walked a block east. Then a block south again, and finally 2 block east and I was back at the office. I wish it was as easy as that sounds.
I was limping and wobbling like a total drunk-ass crippled bum the whole way. I had to lean against a building and try to rest a little twice, had to stop and sit on sidewalk railings twice, and had to fight back tears of humiliation the whole way. Ah well, I'm back at the office and have loads of things to accomplish before I go home. I'm safe and sound and have learned that I still have limits, so I suppose I'm thankful for the learning experience now that it's over.
Thank God it's over. Maybe tomorrow I'll have lost another pound from the walking. :)
