"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! 😥 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”

“Here.” Megan hands me, Vanilla Swiss Almond, with a spoon. How tempting to drown my heartbreak in a billion calories of creamy goodness!

The carton’s perspiring. Chocolate-covered almonds taunt.

“No, I can’t. He dumped me because I lost 80 pounds. He didn’t care I was unhealthy.”

“Oh, hun.”

“I could stuff ice cream down my throat with a nice cabernet chaser, but you know what?”

“What?”

“Running makes me happy and that’s what I’m going to do.”

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