A brief interview
Oh hey there.
What did you not do last night?
I did not attend a… seminar? a workshop?… called “7 Ways to Choke a Man Unconscious.”
What??!? Who invited you to such a thing?
My friend Mike. You know him, you love him.
Well, it’s really too bad that you didn’t go.
What on earth made you pass up such an incredible opportunity?
Well, I had to go running.
That’s not a very good excuse.
YOU’RE TELLING ME.
I hope you at least made it a good run.
I ran 4.8 miles – I’m starting to train for another half-marathon.
I’m signed up for the Seattle Half, which is happening the Sunday after Thanksgiving.
So… what else did you do this weekend?
Well, I drove very far – 1,300 miles.
That is insanity.
Did you have company?
Yes – my mom was with me on Saturday. And the Toad was with me the whole time. Still is, in fact.
Where are you?
I’m in Portland.
With the Toad?
Yes. She’s a good travel buddy.
I still can’t believe you didn’t go to the choking class.
You and me both.
