Just Say It Ain’t Sew

A running dress…. This is EXACTLY what I need.  In a running dress I will look svelte and lean like a strong gazelle as I speed through the woods of Fort Bragg.  I will run swiftly past man, animal, or child without even a jostle of the wind in a running dress! I will leap streams or rocks….or fallen logs…OR FALLEN TREES………..but not snakes those I will go around…. I looked for said dress, I looked like a mere mortal online……in my beloved forest of course……… The dresses were DREADFUL, awful things no prideful gazelle would be caught dead running in. Most looked like a long wife beater tank option that even I…that has been known to wear pajama bottoms to Walmart…would not be caught dead in…..
Now don’t get all PETA on me, I am certainly not planning to snare, then dress a gazelle in a test running dress…so hush it……….  Now I would grill a gazelle if that is a legal act but I actually am not totally up to speed on the legal implications of hunting such said animal NOR have I ever been hunting in my life…..but all this ultra training has made me pretty much crave a good rare steak.  Which in Fayetteville, my favorite place to indulge in such an option is by far the Chop house!  Now I don’t get any free food from the restaurant….they may actually charge me extra because I tend to ask too many questions….but oh my..do they make a FABULOUS steak and a wicked bad so good it’s a SIN martini…….
Now my blogger guru (is that what you would call someone that is spectacular @ what they do??? She is the YODA of ultra blogging I am just saying…funny, smart, runs like a bazillion, chizillion miles) thought maybe a pattern would help. Of course it would! Anyone in their right mind would use a pattern. So after I got done laughing about using a pattern (I am an artist…….. so I believe that legally excuses me from using a pattern, and yes I am aware I have never SOLD anything, but then I also still have both of my ears firmly attached so my level of dedication and commitment may be in question)
artistThis is what I have so far:
1-An awesome name for my new running dress company when the IPO goes out “Gritty Girl” a division of vintagegltrgirl we may also expand to offer “Gritty Guy” run skorts in the future
2-I ate 2 boxes of Krispy Kreme donuts
3- I have a crooked half-finished run dress that is unwearable
4- I decided that since Friday is technically a rest day I should not be sewing…..

I am planning to stick to my purchased run skirts and emerging career as a redbox movie rental button pusher for toddlers (RMRBPT).  I find that the new market for RMRBPTs is virtually untapped. Granted it has caused me a bit of issue on a couple of awkward occasions but I am sure as the newness of the position and possibility of assistance at the very complicated redbox becomes known…..I will be welcomed with open arms. redbox
