Bein' Obvious

We hate to think of ourselves as predictable, or easily sussed, don't we? We like to think we're complex, mysterious, that it would take time to get to know us, to pin down what makes us tick.

This being so, it was mortifying to have the Pilates instructor, after only two sessions, turn round to me with a smile on her face and say, "you're thinking too much. Stop it."

"It seems I was bein' obvious, Bunter."*

Of course, she might have got a hint from the lifestyle section of her little form, where I'd put, I work at a desk all day, then go home and work at a desk all evening.

Curses. Must strive to be inscrutable.

But of course! With hindsight, I don't think I've got it word perfect... never mind, the intention is clear!

But you *do* think too much. It's your curse, and your blessing.

I just started doing Pilates too, Anna, albeit at home with a DVD. I think a lot. Things like, "Ouch, this hurts!" LOL

Just catching up on your blog. LOVED the romantic CD story and the pics of your kitty!
