Who’s Got the Cat’s Balls?

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 (brisdon@comcast.net). 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!

  2. Right now, there is an equal chance I'll be driving cross-country in August or I'll still be in Denver (my life = "....??"). I'm waiting to here about a job and so I should know next week. I would love to either run or volunteer if I am here!!

  5. Thank Sam for letting me know what cat's balls feel like--have always wondered. ; )

    Have fun planning the race. I'm on a committee to put together a Girls on the Run 5k and it's really enlightening to see how much goes into a race--I really had no appreciation for it before!

  7. Ok, the Skirt Chasers Race sounds like sooo much fun! I looked and there was one close to me but I missed it. I voted for the closest city for next year and if it wins, I'll be there for sure! Oh, and do you have one of those skirts? They looks great.

  11. I might be interested in volunteering, but is there a way to get more details about what I'd be doing, the times I'd be doing it, etc??? I thought about running this too, so that might be an option too!

  12. I just choked on my water...the part about sam setting off a party popper scaring the shit out of your husband totally cracks me up!! Thats awesome! I wish your race was in D.C. I would be all over it!

  14. I'd say "first race as a logistical coordinator".

    Man, picture a group of kids poking and prodding, commenting, coming out with boy giggles and comments. They must have had some choice similes.

    The poster looks great. Wish I were closer to help you.

  17. Skirt chaser sounds like a fun run. ;-)

  18. You've got me down for a volunteer!

  19. " I’m actually getting paid to coordinate the race." <- VERY sweet. Nice work!!

    I might be able to make it out to that race! We'll be at the IronGirl event in the morning - and might stop by a Bike race in F.Collins that afternoon? So, in other words, if I'm still alive/sober - I will be there.

    p.s. My {older} brother used to sleep until almost 1 pm in his teenage years - so, that little trick might really wake him from a deep sleep ;)

  20. I swear you Colorado girls are making that state sound more and more fun to live in! I'm jealous!

  21. okay, I am far away so I can't volunteer that day. Is there anyway a nice girl in Virginia can be of any assistance? I have cats without balls and I love Sam!

  22. You have 600 followers who elect to get themselves listed as followers - there's at least one more (not-so) anonymous one.

    I think I have 600 anonymous followers. Then again,I also think I won the Boston Marathon.

  23. I live in Denver metro and registered for the Skirt Chaser last week. I am almost always out of town when it comes to Denver so I am psyched at being able to participate this year! Right after it's over, I'm heading over to the Green Day concert though :D
