Monday Morning Coffee Club: 8/31/15

Giant mugI’m sorry this post is so late, Modern Philosophers, but it has been a very busy last day of my Summer vacation!

I went for my morning run as usual, but then I couldn’t reward myself afterwards with a big glass of chocolate milk, so that was a bit of a downer.

I also couldn’t refuel with a hearty breakfast because I needed to fast for my blood work.

That’s right, Modern Philosophers, today was the dreaded annual physical.  I hate going to the doctor, and I resent having to starve myself to have blood drawn.

So even though it was a vacation day, it pretty much felt like a typical Monday.

The last Monday of August, by the way.  Where in the world has the Summer gone?  Didn’t it just begin a couple of weeks ago?  How did I manage to miss it?

Even though I dislike going to the doctor, it was a mostly painless experience.  I got to brag to Dr. S about how I’ve been running like a madman and losing weight.  He was very impressed with that, and encouraged me to keep at it.

They took some blood, but I should be okay since I had some to spare.

When I left the medical center, the first thing I did was call my favorite Chinese restaurant to order lunch.

MondayAfter eight weeks of running and eating better, I was determined to finally reward myself with some Chinese food.  General Tso’s Chicken was exactly what the doctor ordered, even though Dr. S actually did not order it for me.  He probably would’ve frowned on it, but I didn’t care.

So now you understand why this post is so late.  I was too weak to write, and I only recovered my strength after eating my first Chinese food in two months.

I am happy to report that I did not put soy sauce on it like I usually do, and while I ate all the chicken, I left most of the rice.

So even when splurging, I do it in moderation.

I’ve got a quick errand to run, and then I want to work on my new screenplay.  I believe it’s at 46 pages now, which is pretty cool considering I didn’t even have an idea for a new script when I started vacation last week.

Finally, I want to wish a Happy Birthday to my little sister Jennifer.

Hope you are all having a great Monday.  Enjoy this last day of August!  I’m doing my best to make the most of this last day of Summer vacation…
