The Girl Who Couldn't Say No

I'm on my own this weekend while Scott is out in the wilderness for some male bonding. I could do errands. I could go to the gym. I could go shopping. I could watch a bunch of cheesy romance flicks without the unappreciative male point of view.

But no. Because I know I ought to be a better person, I am going to be out in the Georgia heat and humidity building a Habitat for Humanity house. I ought to have volunteered because my veins overflow with the milk of human kindness. But no - I volunteered because there weren't enough people signed up to work this Saturday. Apparently if you can't bring enough of your own office people (and their friends and family), the Habitat people have to come work on the house, which is rather pathetic. So I'm doing my part to save the firm's pride.

So, anyone want to come with me? (Don't worry, I'm only kidding.)

You're a good person. If I wasn't already going to visit my parents in Alabama this weekend, well, I'd be coming up with a lazy excuse.

You could always reward yourself later with 2 weekends of shopping and cheesy romance flicks!

LTR: Yeah, it must be that Father's Day weekend is conflicting with the work schedule. I'm not really a good person. I am, however, a sucker. But hey, maybe I will pick up some skills.

tangognat: True. Now I have an excuse to go ogle a naked Ewan Macgregor in Young Adam.
