I get nervous when I see Tweets like this one:
Because the first time I click the “old ladies” picture link and see some woman my age working out, I’m gonna lose my shit. LOSE. MY. SHIT. You have been warned.

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone to Google Street View to see our house. Then we breathed a sigh of relief when we realized the Google camera didn’t come cruising down our street when the kid’s toys were spewed across the lawn like a tornado just hit a toy store, when our underwear was hanging on the clothes line, or when you and your spouse were in the midst of a record-breaking stubbornness contest where you both were refusing to cut the grass (Victor=me. Always.).
When finally finding your house, can you imagine how absolutely fantastic it would be to see THIS?:
Via Twitter, @DanShirley was “creeped” out by it. Sir, it would be freaky-creepy if this man was captured jogging in front of MY house, the person behind JoggingJeans.com. You, however, should be resting easy and rejoicing that you have a jean-wearing jogger in your neighborhood. He provides so much enjoyment as you live your life looking forward to the next time he comes kickin’ it by your house.

Tracey from Stride and Joy sent me another picture. This one is of an awesome guy taken after the Shipyard Old Port Half Marathon & 5K in Maine on July 22, 2012. She writes, “He’s taking a swig from the fab squeeze bottles of ice water we got at the end, although you’d swear he was drinking something else in this shot. “
Another for the “Cutie old people” category. Thanks, Tracey!

In the second grade, after our first lesson about poetry, I sat on a published poetry book and plagiarized my first poetry-writing assignment (yeah, I got busted). I knew, at age 8, that I didn’t have the right-brained, creative, imaginative, Pinterest-lovin’ talents and abilities that others possessed. I still don’t. I do math proofs and solve logic problems for fun (okay, not anymore, ’cause I’m old but at one time I did).
…You: “Shut the hell up, Jill, and show us pictures of people exercising in jeans.”
…Me: “You shut up. I’m not done yet.”
So my point: I am blown away by those of you that possess the talents that I am lacking. Especially Boomie, author of Boomie Bol, a trove of poetry brilliance. Boomie sent me a picture of a denim-clad lady at her gym and, because I have been a fan of her writing, asked her if she would share her talents and write an accompanying poem. Minutes later (no exaggeration) she sent me one. Enjoy her poem and picture then go visit her blog, Boomie Bol, and prepare to have your right-brain world rocked.
Cuter than her Complete Denim Outfit
Were the flower patterns on her top
Ones she could have knitted on herself
But she gets cuter
As she gets on the treadmill
Running at the slowest pace ever seen
Cute and petite
I wanted to see her face
After 7 minutes
She got off
Glasses on her face
A smile permanent on her face
Like a tattoo
And walked towards the exit
Then she paused for a second and said
Sweetly “you are a strong one dear”
I smiled in gratitude
And whispered to myself
“I wish this lady was my grandma”
