I have a straight up issue right now. Legit ISH SHEW. Ok, so last week, I was being a really great friend and taking Sergio coffee. I bought two lattes at one of my favorite coffee shops then headed over towards Sergio’s house. It was snowing, again, so I was trying to get out of my car without getting slushed. So, to not get completely bombarded with yellow slushy snow, I placed one coffee on top of the other, kicked open my door, grabbed my purse, and sh*t got crazy. One of the coffees legit jumped out of my hand (meaning it fell off of the other coffee) and spilled everywhere (meaning the lid came off and completely poured out onto my car floor). I literally sat there screaming NOOOOOOOOOOOOO….OOOOO….OOO for a good 30 seconds, pretty much until I couldn’t breathe anymore. Then I stared at the coffee as it sunk into the carpet. Then I threw my scarf on top of it in a pitiful attempt to soak it up. It did nothing. Then I went on with my day. Hoping it would clear itself up. Welp, it’s been a week. I’m stupid. And my car smells like a dump truck. Legit dump. Not poo, just spoiled milk. I’m going to go get it detailed. They are going to hate me.

I had to snatch the sh*t out of things today. First 7 minutes of burpees, now 10 minutes of snatches. Look at you go CrossFit. WOD 12.2 was a doozy. Constantly snatching for 10 minutes is pretty damn hard. I’m excited for this wod to be over specifically so I can stop hearing all the snatch sexual innuendos and jokes going around at the gym. They aren’t original anymore. I’ve seen them on aboooout 65 different CrossFit shirts at this point. And every dude thinks he’s so creative when he makes a joke about it. Way to go guys. Way.to.be.

You know what’s weird about coffee cake? There’s no coffee in it. That’s kind of dumb. I mean, I’m guessing it was named that because people drank coffee with it? I don’t know. I guess we might as well call it donut cake. That makes sense. Since you eat coffee with donuts. Right? I don’t know what I’m saying. Either way, my coffee cake has coffee in it. I don’t mess around. Nor lie. So if you’re into coffee cake that doesn’t taste slightly like coffee, you’re not gonna be into this. And I won’t really be into you anyways.

I smell like bacon. Damnit.
