Status of my Type B metamorphosis

I am taking baby steps to my goal literally. I am walking much slower too and from the subways. What used to take me 5 minutes from my apartment to the train station, now takes 8.
Then when I get out on Madison Avenue, I let everyone walk, push, rush past me and I am the last one up the stairs and out of the station. Really now, why rush? So I get to my cubical at 8:55 instead of 8:52. Meanwhile in this tortoise-like walk of mine, I am either grooving to my iPod or just breathing in all of God's nature that midtown Manhattan has to offer (Exhaust fumes, truck horns, panic). Ahhhh, serenity. It is mind control. I am beginning to block it out like Brett Farve on a Sunday in front of 80,000 screaming Cheeseheads. I am in the zone to total Type-B-ocity. I have found myself enjoying those precious moments more. Why rush through life?

Nothing like a leisurely walk through the countryside in the morning. No reason to rush at all.

Leighann said...

Oh sure, laugh at my despair!

Being somewhat Type-A myself, I'm thinking maybe some meditation? A visit to an Ashram perhaps? Or maybe a just a hot bath...with wine and Yodels!

I will not follow the norm. It is my rebellious nature I 'spos. I need to write a book on how to be a non-conformist. Ah the irony.

Hey Doc, Also our main photo looks like I am the calm, cool one and you are the zanyiac. Maybe we are flipfloping now.

I agree, let's not rush it.

Christine (vince's sister) said...

I'm a kitten. Dare I say...but, YES! We can all be friends at any age........can't we?

Doc said...

Doc said...

vin, I am not hitting on your sister... BTW - Christine please go and vote for Arby's Horsey Sauce

Christine (vince's sister) said...

You guys are funny. But I like honey mustard myself and I don't see that option. Hey, maybe a poll for the best candy - I just had a Nestles Crunch "Crisp." That extra layer or light, crispiness makes it very special!

Doc said...

Chic Fil-A honey mustard is on there... you can vote for more than one.. Vote for it and the Arby's Horsey sauce... It's important We can't be beaten by Oil and Vinegar.

Shane, Lets change our names to Magic Man and El Diablo.

Doc said...

How dare me? How dare me? I am trying to get people to visit my blog and vote. Aren't you trying to do the same encouraging people to vote for O & V ??

Jahooni said...

oh lighten up! ;-)

Karen said...

I am interested to see how long this will last. I hear the over/under is you get run over by another bridge and tunnel commuter by February 12th. You HAVE TO rush around in midtown during rush hour.

The Mountain Cat said...

Karen,

Well it didn't last long. I went to sleep at 1am and I woke up at 5am and could not go back to sleep. I just cleaned my whole apartment and did laundry. I have so much energy today!
