This morning I went on a run because, you know. (“How is that going?!” you ask. “Meh…” I say.) It’s cold in the mornings, so I put Vaseline on my cheeks because I read somewhere that it prevents wind chapping. I probably didn’t need it because it’s not THAT cold anymore, but I’m a weenie. Deal with it.
At some point during mile 2 today, I ran straight into a swirling cloud of gnats… while I had petroleum jelly on my face. WHILE I HAD PETROLEUM JELLY ON MY FACE. I might as well have been wearing fly paper.
And if that weren’t disgusting enough, Bobby just sent me this: TIL that gnat clouds are essentially gnat orgies. Ew.
BRB, I need to go sterilize my face.
