just say yes

January 28, 2015

i went to a monster truck show last weekend and wore a foam truck on my head.  my girl friends and i slurped a snow cone out of a fist-shaped plastic mug that spins in circles.  we fought over the blue cotton candy (so much tastier than pink) like we’d never heard of calories or sugar.  our night ended at a bar, but do you know how comfortable it felt being young?

how many times do i fret over whether he likes me or whether my manager was giving me the stink eye at work today or if i’m skinny enough to rock the dolce & gabbana corset dress to the black tie gala this weekend?  how many times do i say no to sugar or fun or giggling?  how many times should i have just said yes?  to fun and freedom and paying for it all with an extra-long run in the morning?

here’s to blue cotton candy and foam headwear.  and the girls that helped me say “yes” more often.
