Not only did we hit 500 miles first - we did so in 192 hours, or just 8 days! No other club is even at 500 miles as of this moment - as we are well over 600. Way to go to my Trithlon Club for all of the gret swimming miles!
Mike told me yesterday, after hearing that I was on my way to the pool, that he may very well have to buy a boat, a poll and a shiny pink lure. I asked him why - and his reply? His reply was so he could fish me out since I am ALWAYS swimming now.
Awesome! But I have not grown gills. (I keep hoping!)
Today wass typical - get to work, have a few meetings, go play Whirly Ball for 3.5 hours, visit friend in new apartment, head home. Oh wait... did I say Play Whirley Ball for 3.5 hours? Because that is what I did in the middle of the day. It amazes me how sometimes I just stumble into abolutely funny things in the middle of my day.
For instance - there is this man at work who drops f-bombs like none other. Not quitely and not always in a funny way. He literally swears at everyone. My money is that he used to work at a plant before comming to corporate America. A typical conversation with his boss/customer/supplier/college friend/grandmother goes a little something like this:
Well hey there, F*&$ you! ... You have got to be F*&^ing kidding me you C**K sucker! GO F*&^ yourself A$$hole! ... OK, motherF*&^ing jerk*ff. See you Tomorrow! F*&^er!
So I have been keeping atally of his curses. In a 3 minute mini conversation I lost count.
We also have this otehr gentleman from Russia who has worn the ssme sweater every day for 45 days. I know this because yet again we have a tally, ok a game really. We have determined that the sweater worn for prolonged periods of time results in a molecular layer being formed which can conduct heat away from the body, yet keep the occupant warm all winter long. Just a theory... or he could just be that nasty.
Don't even get me started on all the banter about boobs. Fun times!
Today - no tally's, just good oldfashioned Whirley ball with the engineers. The girl team won, just so you know. 'Cause girl Enginerds... we sorta rock.
Have a great weekend all! I am of course swimming in the AM then heading north to FLIN-TOWN (say it like "Eight Mile* from the movie...) to see a very preggers Chritina (she was supposed to find out the sex of the baby today... I am thinking that it is a girl) and hang out bit.
Well, I am off to din-din to the Lazy Lizzard Cantin for some good pre-swim food stuffs. READ:Margaritas.
