Today is the day I’ve designated to run my ass around Boulder leaving fliers for my Skirt Chaser 5K race in every possible running, multisport, tri store and fitness center. Fortunately, Boulder is full of crazy athletic people so there are ten million of these stores in the area.
I call it “my” race, which is not true. It is not my race at all. I only take ownership of it because it is my first race as a logistical coordinator. Plus, I’m actually getting paid to coordinate the race. I know, right?. Pretty sweet.
I am waiting for Sam to wake up so I can buy him a coffee and bribe him to help me. He is only 12, but he sleeps like a hung-over frat boy. For God’s sake it’s 10:01 a.m. and he’s still asleep. Time to check his breathing.
Speaking of Sam, yesterday we were talking about a camp he went to last summer at the local humane society. They got to watch a cat get neutered. I asked Sam if it was gross and he said, “No, but I got to hold the cat’s balls.” Seriously? They let kids hold cat nuts? Who knew. When I was his age I’d be lucky to get a lollipop at my paper doll camp. What ever happened to paper dolls anyway? Ever play with those? By the way, he said they were squishy.
Back to the race. If you have any desire to volunteer, please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org). You’ll get a nifty black running skirt from Skirt Sports (or a t-shirt if you’re a dude), you’ll get to meet me in all of my farting glory (I promise to leave those at home that day), and you’ll get free beer and food. It’s an evening race (5pm) on August 28 in Denver (Cherry Creek). Or, come out and run it!!!
Geez, 10:05. That kid’s got to get up. I KNOW! Last night Sam hid behind a chair in our room when Ken was changing. He then set off one of those party poppers to scare him. He came downstairs sheepishly saying, “That made dad really mad. He said the “f” word and the “s” word.” Think I know how I’ll wake him up. Hope he doesn’t poop the bed.
SCORE!!! I just made it to 600 followers. So it seems that 600 of you like to follow potty talk. Just so you know.
Don’t forget my Champion shirt giveaway!
