A Bird Pooped On Me.

May 30, 2012


Erin Schrader

Just when I thought I was short on blogging ideas, I get smacked in the neck with inspiration.
So check it.
Here I am..sitting on our new beautiful plastic $16 chairs, drinking wine, talking on the phone to my bestie.
Life was good.
And that’s when it happened. Out of absolutely nowhere, I got smacked on the back of my neck. Smacked I tell you. My first thought was that a neighbor threw a pine cone at me. Normal first thought. I know. Anyhow–I immediately take my hand and rub my neck where it just got pelted. Except there was no pine cone. I feel wetness and I see white. Immediately I freak out yelling at my friend “OH MY GOSH..A BIRD JUST POOPED ON ME. A FREAKIN’ BIRD POOPED ON ME. I HAVE TO GO.”
Friends, I kid you not. As I stood up the poop ran down my back. Not just ran, dripped.
Yes, go vomit. I almost did.
Long story short–after picking the poop out of my hair, my necklace, and my shirt, I hopped in the shower and scrubbed harder than I ever have before. All while professing my extreme disgust to my empty house. What does one do after getting shat on by a bird?
Go to book club for the first time and introduce yourself to a table full of girls you have never met and say “My name is Erin…I just got pooped on by a bird”
Nice meeting you too.
It’s a good thing I had a great time at book club or this could have been a really crappy day.
Pun intended.
Speaking of book club–guess who got to pick the first book? This girl. Guess who is making adult Fifty Shades of Gray reading women read Ellen’s “Seriously, I’m Kidding” book instead?
This girl.
This world is about to be a much happier place.
You know who else is about to be a heck of a lot happier?
Why you may ask? Well let me tell you.
Today I have the inspiring, beautiful, honest, and did I mention inspirational, Katie to share with you.
You must read this tid bit from her and then go get to know her better.
Well hello there lovelies!
I am sure, just as I do, you all adore/stalk/love Erin and her blog! So I am very grateful that you’ll all take the time to learn about little ol’ me 🙂
This is Meeeeeee!
I know I know, you’re like REALLY ERIN? ANOTHER guest post?! And yes, another one, BUT I think you’ll enjoy it.
Well truth be told, I’m fat. Got your attention now? [Don’t let that picture deceive you] I’m also outspoken, silly, outgoing, optimistic, loving, funny, addicted to music and dancing and a 25 year old [soon to be 26 in June] hopeless romantic. But enough about me, we’re here to talk shop, er… BLOG!
Over at my blog, that’s what it’s all about. No no, I don’t talk about what it’s like to be fat. I talk about how I am getting un-fat, if that’s a way to put it [haha]. My blog is all about my life and my weight loss journey. At the start I was 80 lbs overweight! I discuss the struggles, the gripes and complains, the good days, the progress, all of it. I’ve currently lost 25 lbs and looking to lose 55 more [progress pictures]. The point of my blog is not only to have accountability for myself but also I have hopes to inspire one more person to make a smart life choice for themselves.
If along the way I can make you laugh, cry [happy tears], dance, roll your eyes, or sing then that’s a bonus!! I truly am here to ask you to read my blog, subscribe, draw inspiration, change your life, or share it with someone who needs the motivation or a push to change their life.
I dare you
Told you she is great.
Go say hello over here would ya?
And be sweet. I mean shoot, she could get crapped on by a bird today too. You just never know.
PS. Thank you to all you twit heads who told me that getting pooped on is good luck. It really made me feel better. Or maybe that was the rum and diet I downed immediately following the incident?
Either way, it worked.
PPS. Last call for June sponsors–I have medium spots left. 200×150//$20//Group Giveaway.
Email me at livinginyellow@gmail.com if you want in on the action. And believe me, you do.
