Good luck hammering in the morning...all over this land

 

I'd say you should hammer out danger and warning, but I think you use your KB for that. Are you going to bring your hammer on your runs?? That would be cool but might scare the neighbors. But maybe they are used to seeing the tire get dragged around and wouldn't flinch (?)

Haha, now I am going to have that song stuck in my head...

Thanks.  I accidently got hammered last night.  I had one beer.  But it was a big bottle (20 oz, maybe a bit more), it was Belgian, it was dark, and apparently it was strong. I was sloshed after one and was incredibly hung over this morning. Ive got to be more careful in the future. 

 

I thought it was hammered in the morning?  Not hung in the morning?

 

well you know what I say......practice makes perfect!

This is step one in a three step series for becoming a financial wizard

 

The steps are 

  1. Know how much money you make/have
  2. Know how much money you spend
  3. Keep 2 consistently less than 1 consistently more than 2 (this is where the wizardry part come in)

 

That's genius. I've never gotten past step one.

Thanks.  The neighbors would probably be cool with it, but I'm brown enough that I'm afraid of being stopped by the police with a weapon.  I'll probably carry around a KB when I walk the dog. Tire pulling should resurface after cyclocross season.

I woke up hung over without having done any drinking. I gotta assume I have the back-to-school plague. I had it last year at this time too.  

 

I tuned my bike and replaced the tire goo.  It made an unholy mess all over the patio. Some times I think I'm old enough to take my bike to the shop and let someone else get messy. Tomorrow I'll buy some race food, pack my bag, go on a little ride and I should be good to go. 

 

At school I saw a Kindergarten class.  I know they know the Pete the Cat story because McDonalds is giving the books out, so when I went by their line I did a funny walk and sang, "I love my blue shoes, I love my blue shoes..."  Now they look for Pete whenever they leave their class. I may be stuck walking funny and singing all year long. I'd just get my K license if I didn't have to do student-teaching again.

It'll never happen because I don't have a divinity license.

My degree is in divinity. I'm literally a Master of Divinity.

My license and ordination are for ministry.

You are awesome! You'd be awesome with K kids, and set them up right for life/school. ;)

Thanks.  I think I'd be good with our typical students, but I think I'd fail our high needs students and I'd probably under teach the high achieving students.  But it'd be fun.

9/15/17 Friday

 

I didn't wake up sick.  That was nice. School was fine, nothing worth mentioning there. The rest of the family went to a neighborhood church festival while I prepped for the race.  On my ride the bike, my legs, and my back all felt good, but I'm not fast right now.  I'm hoping for a three hour finish, but it's been a while since I've had a real training ride, so I may be substantially slower. 

 

I had a weird moment on my bike. I was biking through a busy section and a drunk couple was having an argument.  The guy grabbed the lady in anger.  I slowed down, made eye contact, and he let go.  I rode on, but quickly thought I should check on her. I did some slow figure eights around the neighborhood and each time they were a little calmer, by my fourth pass they were on their bikes and heading for the train station.

 

I always second guess myself here.  I know I'm not a man of action, I overthink things before getting involved.  I wish I would have stepped in right away and talked to the lady and made sure she was alright. Chances are she would have yelled at me to leave her boyfriend alone. Maybe I could have gotten into a fist fight and gotten that out of my system ;)

A class of kindergarteners are so cute...at a distance...ha.

 

About the couple on the bike: It's always ]hard to know what to do in those situations. I only get in the middle of things that I'm required to. ha.  Glad your body decided to cooperate on your ride today!!

It seems that you did intervene and just enough to diffuse their situation without having to insert yourself completely into in. That sounds like the perfect balance to me. You did good!

Stribs & Def: Thanks for your perspective. :)

I'm leaving about a half hour late. I may have trouble parking. My back is solid this morning and my belly is miraculously acting nice. It should be a great race.

Agreeing with Deffy, sound like you did just enough to cool things down but not so much that it created additional problems

Sloth, one of the most difficult situations for police officers is a domestic dispute. The others are absolutely right, anything more than what you did would have exacerbated the problem. Inserting yourself would have been foolish, as you likely would have been double teamed by the two of them. There's nothing like a common foe to bring two disputants together.
