Weightwatchers is, drumroll..... working! So far, I am down over six pounds, have lost 5% of my total weight, and am just shy of being halfway to my goal! Go me. And this is including a weekend of gratuitous eating with my parents, drink dates with my girlfriends and more. I'm feeling really motivated and moreover, that this time I'll be able to keep myself trim as long as I stay on track and don't slack off. It's a huge relief to know that my metabolism didn't actually croak! RA Freshman 15...you just might be history!
Yes, you read that correctly. Spanked.
For those of you who have been spared the indecensies of online dating know-how, a common feature of many online dating sites is what's considered online 'flirting.' By clicking a tab on someone's profile, you can choose to virtually send them a wink, a wave, a smile....or apparently you can choose to spank them.
In what horridly-mannered universe did spanking someone become an acceptable form of introduction? Not mine! I was completely aghast and, well, confused. Call me old fashioned, but how is that supposed to be enticing?
It reminds me of when I was in kindergarten and Jason E., one of the boys in my class, would persist on sitting in the seat behind me on the bus every day. As soon as the bus driver wasn't looking, he would slide under my seat so he could kick my feet repeatedly. I would become furious (even at the age of 5) and turn around and give him a look of total disdain, which only encouraged him to do this even more. When I told my mother about how he was picking on me, she smiled and said that he probably just liked me, and this was his way of showing me attention. I didn't really understand this bizarre act of apparent affection then, and I understand it even less at the age of 30. Didn't this guy's mother raise him right? Spanking as a form of hello is one part lame and two parts rude.
Please, God, Buddha, Zeus, whomever. Please spare me from this type of humiliation
