“I Feel Good!” #amwriting

It’s not a good start in January to miss a Friday Fictioneers but miss last week’s I did. I didn’t even look at the picture! ๐Ÿ˜ฅ I am back this week and hopefully many more to come. Like the title, “I Feel Good!”

Thank you as always to Rochelle who makes this all happen!

“I Feel Good”

โ€œHere.โ€ Megan hands me, Vanilla Swiss Almond, with a spoon. How tempting to drown my heartbreak in a billion calories of creamy goodness!

The cartonโ€™s perspiring. Chocolate-covered almonds taunt.

โ€œNo, I canโ€™t. He dumped me because I lost 80 pounds. He didnโ€™t care I was unhealthy.โ€

โ€œOh, hun.โ€

โ€œI could stuff ice cream down my throat with a nice cabernet chaser, but you know what?โ€

โ€œWhat?โ€

โ€œRunning makes me happy and thatโ€™s what Iโ€™m going to do.โ€

Sneakers slapping pavement, mist coating my skin, I feel alive. Running gives way to dancing and laughter. James Brown sings: “I Feel Good.”
