Have you ever...

Have you ever had a really shallow thought, and then felt ashamed of yourself for thinking it?
But then, at the same time, you still agree with the thought that you've had?
I had one of those moments today.

We went in to Eyemasters because my mom needed to pick up some new glasses.
When I walked in, I instantly thought, "Do they only hire ugly people at Eyemasters?"

Sure, I felt bad about it.
But these people had a serious case of the "I don't know how to take care of myselves".
Two of them were obese, and one was wearing a horrible wig.
She may have been wearing a wig for many reasons, like cancer or such.
But she still could've had a nicer wig. It was so plastic and frizzy.

To be honest, I am not a look-obsessed person.
They were all very kind, so that's what I focused on once we started talking.
But the initial opinion that I had was not the nicest.

Does this make me a bad person? Maybe, maybe not. I don't think it does. I'm sure each one of you has had a shallow thought at some point. It's hard to avoid considering how image-concious our society is.

I didn't actually do anything else today, except lay in bed hacking my brains out with a cold.
At one point I coughed, my throat closed, and I started gagging. I fully thought I was going to throw up on myself.
Anyone know any good cough remedies? I'm so tired of coughing and coughing. It's driving me insane.

I also bought some new shorts today. I needed some shorter ones. Back when I had huge thighs (I did, because I sit down a lot), I couldn't wear shorter ones. They cut off the circulation in my legs.

So yeah, that was my day. But a coughing remedy would be greatly appreciated.

Orange shirt!

No, that doesn't make you a bad person, just normal! I think stuff like that all the time. One of my common thoughts is when I see ugly parents with their ugly kids and I think, seriously, why did you reproduce?? Didn't you realize your kids would be butt-ugly and get made fun of their entire childhood?? Was that fun for you? Because now that's going to be their life.

Geez...I shouldn't have written that...I'm really mean, huh?

We ALL have shallow thoughts. We can't help it.

And I hope you feel better soon!

My kids doctor says that a teaspoon of straight honey will do the trick for a cough. Hope you feel better!!

Everyone has shallow thoughts. It's what makes us human.

Oh, and I went to the eye doctor yesterday myself. They actually employed an "Eye Wear Consultant". Yeah, someone works there whose purpose is to actually tell people what glasses to wear.

Oops, was that shallow?

Then again, I haven't been to a Lenscrafters ever. It was my first visit to the eye doctor in 12 years.

We all do that, not that we mean too. I hate the word obese though, or fat. It could stem from me being obese, I still say that I am even after the surgery, because I will never see the number 150 even...not sure I could ever get there unless I hacked the boobage off, that's a good 15 lbs at least!

I guess I am different when it comes to people. I see beauty on the inside. There are a lot of gorgeous people out there that become very ugly once they open their mouth. I'd rather be around an ugly positive person than a externally beautiful person that has a rotten attitude.

I hope you get rid of your cough soon. We just use Robitussin for ours.

If it wasn't for shallow thoughts, Id probably have no thoughts! As for an un shallow thought, those shorts are HOT!

Everyone has shallow thoughts, but not saying them makes you a good person, so no worries :)

Cute new shorts!
