Random things that have nothing to do with each other except that they are on the same post...

Under the threat of being fined by Elisa Jane, here ya go:

1. I went to pick up my mountain bike from the hospital (bike shop) today over lunch. When I walked in, the man behind the counter said to me, "Can I ask you something? How much do you weigh?" I looked at him in astonishment for a second then replied, "Why?" He proceeded to explain something about my tire pressure being at too high a setting- for a much bigger person. I explained that I only weigh 90 lbs, but usually have 2 or 3 friends with me on my bike which explains the need for excess tire pressure. Ha. What a presumptious question to ask a woman!

2. I begin my annual class series this week for my 8th grade girls to help prepare them for HS. It is one of favorite times- we have a blast. Question: Looking back, what do you wish you had known/someone had told you as you entered high school?

3. I had a retreat last weekend (theme: "KING") and as part of the fun we had teens "jousting" with pool noodles loaded with peanut butter up on stage. They wore T-shirts with targets on them and ran at one another, attempting to get closest to the opponents "mark." It seemed fool-proof except we loaded too much PB on the noodles and at the first run, I'M STILL NOT SURE HOW THIS HAPPENED- a huge (I mean HUGE) glob of PB was launched 15 feet into the air and stuck to the projector screen about 15 feet up. Let's just say, I totally fell apart as the MC of the event and we will probably never be allowed back at this facility. Ever.

Love you guys. Ta ta for now.
