Brooks, Tuesday Tangents

2016.012: Tuesday Tangents

Hello, hello! Time for some Tuesday tangents.

You may or may not have heard, but Alabama won the National Championship last night! I am not a huge football fan, but my husband and parents, well that’s a whole nother story.

Speaking of being the champions … I am singing Queen’s “We are the Champions” in my head now. That song make me the of the Mighty Ducks. I haven’t thought about those movies in forever. I was totally into roller hockey when those movies were out. Ducks fly together!

Speaking of ducks … We had ducks as pets growing up and so I absolutely refuse to eat duck. Ever. If you are ever out to dinner with me, please for goodness sake, don’t order duck. A little part of me will die inside if you do.

For goodness sake … I just googled that phrase to determine if I was using it correctly from a grammatical standpoint (nerd alert). Apparently, there is some controversy as to the placement or non-placement of an apostrophe and whether or not sake is plural. Google directed my search to “for goodness sake I got the hippy hippy shakes.” So now I have another song stuck in my head!

Speaking of shakes … I had this protein shake the other day and it was really good. I am always trying out new brands of protein shakes. They are perfect for snacks or post-workout recovery.


Speaking of recovery … my legs were so sore today! I think I had a little bit of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) going on. DOMS is the gradually increasing discomfort that occurs between 24 and 48 hours after activity that stresses the muscle tissue beyond what it is accustomed to. I’m pretty sure my legs are stressed out.

Speaking of stressed out …


Yeah, never mind. Brooks doesn’t know what stressed out means.

Speaking of Brooks … one of my friends texted me last weekend while she was out shopping for running shoes and asked if Brooks’ name was inspired by our running shoes. Indeed it was! Daniel and I both love Brooks running shoes (we also just really liked the name in general).

Now, I am going to follow suit and see if I can’t get my stress levels to match little Brookser’s here. See ya tomorrow! Thanks for listening to the randomness in my head today. It’s a crazy place up there sometimes y’all.
