Just wanted to highlight a sentiment that I hope is shared by many!
I bought into $DOGE as an investment, but also as a currency. I’d love to purchase things with $DOGE as it becomes more mainstream.
I will convert to USD should any life events occur that require me to dip into my investments, but if I could buy a house with $DOGE, why wouldn’t I?
I went for a run yesterday with a friend and they looked at me like I was out of my mind whenever I said I wanted to round out our 3.96 miles. 24 hours later and I’m still thinking about how much it bothers me that I didn’t make it a solid 4. Would’ve been fine with 3.50 or 4. NOT 3.96! 🥴
Editing to say: I don’t run “seriously” or train for anything, nor do I run to burn calories or track steps, or anything like that. I just run because it’s fun and it helps lessen anxiety. This is more so about the number itself and not actual distance. I also get annoyed in a similar way with the volume of tv and car radio. I prefer the number to end in a 5 or 0. Growing up my sister would torture me if she had the tv remote. I appreciate volume bars without numbers. 😅 Yes, I know this is odd.
With that being said- I’ve never done 10 miles. So if I was at 9.99 miles, I’d absolutely make sure I ran an additional .01 just to see the 10 on my Strava... Regardless of my GPS’s “inaccuracy.” :) In that instance it would 100% be about the distance, haha!
Just for some backstory, I’m a big fan of Spider-Man, and I’m Puerto Rican but my skin color is white
This was around the beginning of winter, so it wasn’t too cold. I get hungry so I grab my Miles Morales sweater (the spray paint one from spider-verse) My mask (obviously) and some other things, then head on my way. I start walking to McDonald’s, and a kid and his mom pass me. The kid, I’m assuming a fan of Spider-Man, says “Cool sweater!” I say thanks and continue walking. That’s when the mom gets involved
“GET BACK HERE NOW!”
I turn around, because I thought maybe I accidentally tripped her son or something (I’m a pretty clumsy person), but I turn around and both of them are standing there, completely fine, her son oblivious
Me: “Is something wrong?”
EP: “HOW DARE YOU WEAR THAT SWEATER YOU RACIST”
(Side note, this woman isn’t even black)
EP: “YOU’RE WEARING THAT SWEATER SO YOU CAN PRETEND THAT YOUR NOT RACIST AND GET THE SUPPORT OF THE BLM COMMUNITY!”
Me, still confused: “Um, I just like miles mora-
EP: “NO! YOU’RE JUST A WHITE PERSON TRYING TO LOOK SUPPORTIVE OF BLM!”
Me: sighs “if you’re just gonna waste my time, I’m gonna just keep walking”
EP: “NO! YOU WILL NOT WALK AWAY FROM THIS!”
I start walking away, as she still screams at me, and I think of the best truth bomb to drop on this woman
Me: “oh and by the way, Miles Morales is half Puerto Rican, and so am I”
The lady looks surprised, pauses, but then keeps going. I block her out and keep walking.
This probably wasn’t the best story here, but this was the dumbest waste of time I’ve ever had
(And if you need to know, I got my burger with no other problems 😂)
