I go out to eat for "Chinese food" somewhat often. I love to get the fortune cookies. Sometimes you get fortunes, sometimes you get proverbs, and sometimes you get nonsense. Today's fortune happened to be:
A chance meeting with a stranger may soon change your life.
My lucky numbers were: 7 20 22 42 45 47
I keep hoping that I'll get the lucky numbers: 4 8 15 16 23 42
I usually get 1/6, sometimes 2/6, but I don't think I've done any better than that. Anyway, I've decided that the stranger, of whom it is spoken above, is named "Yoga." Even though I told them not to get one for me, my whole office got passes to a gym in town. Tonight I decided to try it out because my coworker was going to yoga, and I wasn't doing anything better. I have the first season of "24," but to tell you the truth, I would fire that Jack Bauer the first chance I got. He sucks.
I have learned many things from this experience (yoga, not watching "24"):
O I have no balance. The instructor kept having us stand on one leg. Nope, not me. At least not in the way that she wanted. I kept falling over, and I actually gave up during that portion. I seriously was bad at it.
O I am unflexible on the left side of my body. It's as if my left leg has been just chilling with my body and doing nothing. The left side is such a slacker. Slacker!
O Yoga is cool. You stretch and relax, and it counts as exercise! It's exercise's equivalent to sleeping in! Yesssss!
O There is something important about lengthening your spine. I'm not sure what that is, but it feels good.
O I like increasing my flexibility.
O When I imagined a nice vacation and relaxation, I imagined my bedroom with my bed and pillows. Somehow I think that the instructor meant for us to imagine a beach, forest, mountain or something. We were supposed to draw in the smells of ocean breeze or trees or whatnot. I had to change my scene to that little island on my cruise to Belize where we played volleyball with the locals. And then when we were supposed to float up, I had to imagine myself in a plane because I was too scared of heights.
O It is good that I have the gym pass. I think I will yoga every week. (Is yoga a verb?)
