To N, my favourite person in the whole world
I had been inhaling paint fumes all day. Wow, I just realized that’s not a very good way to start this post. Hold off on the judgements, please. I’m not some crazy weirdo who spends her days inhaling paint fumes, and getting high off of them.
We were getting our windows painted. They had been at it all day. I was reading a book, which I finished around 11. I was sitting around, thinking of what to do with my life now that my book was finished, when I smelled it.
Me: *sniffs* Is that.. Paint?
Mom: They’ve been at it all day.
Me: How the hell did I miss THAT?
Mom: Well, if you would put down your book for a minute..
Me: *holds up hand* Enough.
I could literally feel the fumes going to my head. By the time midday rolled around, I had a terrible headache from all the paint-inhaling.
I was getting a little cranky, and I was grumbling to my friends.
Friend: What’re you doing?
Me: Inhaling paint fumes.
Friend: Haha, I get high when I inhale paint fumes.
Me: You know that’s going on my blog, right?
I had my exams the next day, and I hadn’t started studying. Due to the paint-fumes-induced headache of course. Oh, don’t you worry. I ended up not going to the exam, after all. Hahaha! Great, now I sound like a deranged psychotic.
Since I wasn’t studying anyway, I was stalking people on WordPress (haha, kidding. I’m not a stalker!), and I decided to check my goodreads. I started shrieking when I saw that an author had contacted me, and asked me if I would be interested in reading an early copy of her book that was going to be released on 30th, since I had put her book on the to-read list.
I said yes, naturally. I believe the exact words I used were “OMG ARE YOU KIDDING ME OF COURSE I WOULD LOVE THAT.” Apparently, I didn’t scare her off after that, because she sent me the book. (I’ll post the review after I’m done.)
Then, I proceeded to call my friends and shriek into their ears.
Me: OMG YOU WON’T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED!
Friend: What is it? AND WHY ARE WE SHOUTING?
Me: AN AUTHOR CONTACTED ME. SHE WANTS ME TO READ AN EARLY COPY IF HER BOOK AND DO A REVIEW!
Friend: OMG THAT IS AMAZING I’M SO EXCITED!!
That’s pretty much how my whole day went. *chuckles* Sorry for the long post. Now I’m tempted to add “here’s a potato”, like they do in 9gag, but I realized that would be very weird, and also that I don’t have a potato.
