In talking with my mother on my drive home last night I realized what a monotonous routine my life has become.
Last night the boss and I played racquetball, an activity which is seemingly terrible for my right elbow, and then ruined it all with some dinner and a few beers at Olde Blind Dog in Brookhaven. Even our post-racquetball outings have become routine, always frequenting the same bars, increasingly with fewer and fewer friendly female bartenders.
Tonight I’ll be headed back down to Colony Square for German class. I can only hope that this morning’s poor traffic, on a Federal Holiday no less, is not a harbinger of what I can expect on my commute to midtown later this evening. Somewhere during my busy schedule today I need to carve out some time to do a little German homework.
Christmas came early in the form of a new iPad Air 2 yesterday. I’ve been considering upgrading from my (ancient by technology standards) iPad 3 for some time and I finally decided to pull the trigger. While waiting in the Apple Store inside Perimeter Mall yesterday I did what I should never have done — put an iPhone 6 into my hand. It was not nearly as large as I had feared. Yes Virginia, I will most likely be getting one of these in the very near future as well. It’s only money, right? And it’s not like I have anything more pressing to do with my money, like fix the ITP Estate or anything. YOLO! Ah the life of a nearly-fifty-year-old single man who hasn’t had a girlfriend in nearly eleven years, nor a date in over two years.
If you want a good laugh in the near future you should try to find the LA Fitness in which I am working out. I have decided to try my hand at taking Spinning classes again, and if I can ever overcome the stigma of being a fat old man I may even return to an aerobics class or two. Let’s just say that it’s been “awhile” since I’ve done either…
