I choose #1 off Mama Kat’s prompt list this week.
I would walk a mile for……
Good food. I love my food. I know I shouldn’t eat the things I do. But come on if it’s covered in butter, deep fried, made with cheese, involves fresh seafood, cow, or anything else yummy, I WANT IT. I love going to restaurants and trying new things. I LOVE food.
My friends and family. There isn’t much I wouldn’t do for those people. After putting up with me for so many years I think the least I can do is walk a mile for them.
Sex. Honestly I would run a mile for that one. And I’m not a runner. I’m human, I’m single, and I don’t pass that up.
The chance to meet Troy Polamalu. I’m a huge Steelers. I blame the 5 or so years I spent in western Pennsylvania. Troy has always been my favorite, he rocks on the field and his energy is insane. Plus come on who doesn’t love that hair. I would willingly walk a mile or more to meet him. Hell I’d do one of those crazy radio contest to meet him. You know the kind where you can’t take your hand off (in this case) the helmet and you have to outlast everyone else. I could do that. I can hold my pee for a crazy long time.
I would walk a mile for…….. (incase you forgot what I’m talking about)
A farther parking spot from the door. I hate getting involved in the whole mess of parking up close to the door. People can be so crazy in parking lots. I’ll walk to the distance to avoid the headache.
Butter Pecan ice cream. It’s my favorite and very comforting when I’m down and out.
Relaxation. I love walking on the beach with my feet in the sand; nothing is more relaxing for me then that. Unfortunately I don’t get to the ocean much since I live in the wonderful landlocked commonwealth of PA, so I have to settle for walking around my neighborhood.
A really great gift for someone else. I like to give meaningful gifts and they aren’t always on the shelf at Bath and Body. Sometimes my quest for the “right gift” takes me far away.
And finally, I would walk a mile for the chance to see my Pappy again. I was in college (5 hours away) when he got sick and while he held on long enough for me to spend sometime with him in the summer, I’ll always wish I could have been there more. He was diagnosed with colon cancer in Feb and passed the following Oct. Seven months and he was gone. I’ll always wish I had been home when he passed away and not received the news alone in my dorm room after Sunday brunch. While I was out celebrating and partying for homecoming Saturday night he was fading away. I would walk a mile to see him again. I would walk forever.
