Call me shallow but I miss 'The Bubble'
The other realization I had while being cooped up and watching Hollywood movies and shows was how much I miss my LA-life. When I saw Leslie Mann working out in 'This is 40' on a grassy strip between car lanes north of Montana Avenue near the Santa Monica stairs, my chest got really tight. Not just because her 40-body is way better than my 40-body but also because I used to walk along that street watching all those housewives being held down by their ankles by their personal trainers to do sit-ups. I used to run up and down those stairs every Saturday and Sunday morning along with dozens of others. I felt on top of the world after an hour of feeling every inch of my gluts.
Santa Monica & Los Angeles - you will always have a place in my heart. I know you have changed just like I have but I miss you very, very much.
