What? I wasn't listening.

Funny story from last night. Ric, AJ and I were standing close to each other, and Ric was talking and trying to be heard over the music. At one point, I realized I had completely stopped listening to him. I noticed Ric was talking directly to me, asking me I had heard what he said.

"I wasn't listening, sorry," I said. "I was looking at myself and got distracted."

And it's true. I was feeling pretty good, proud of myself for running the 5k earlier and really happy about wearing my skinny low-rise jeans, and I was looking at myself in the mirror and I just tuned everyone else out. How shallow is that?

At least AJ got a good laugh out of it. Ric? Not so sure. I think he is a bit worried that he is creating a monster.
