When I was little, I always felt guilty about the feelings of my cuddly toys.  If I slept next to one, I thought the others might be hurt.  So I had to rotate them.

Yesterday, I realised I feel the same way on the treadmill- I measure my progress by both time and distance, and I felt that if I didn’t pay equal attention to both, one would get angry and ruin my workout.

Does one ever grow up?

  1. I think you sound like a grown up because you are on the treadmill! I just stubbornly say I don’t want to……
    Our brains don’t stop growing until we are about 25 but we are so hyperalert and hypervigilant, that perhaps our brains never do actually grow up, just out and around.
