Git yer minds out the gutter! This is me we’re talking about.
Today I might try something I have not done in ages. Is your mind still in the gutter? If the weather permits, I will ride my bike twice in one day. I have already completed 25 miles this morning, I’m planning to ride another 25 miles after work. Why? Why not?
Something Almost Clicked Last Night
I almost felt as if I understood what we were doing in German class last night. Almost. Perhaps it was because most of the material we discussed was material we learned in A1.4, or perhaps the pace wasn’t as fast and furious as it has been in the previous three classes. Either way, it almost felt good. Almost.
Last night was also good because I ran into (figuratively) one of the young women who I’ve not seen since A1.3. She is a high school Spanish teacher who is two weeks away from moving to Austria to be with her Panamanian boyfriend; he’s an Olympic swimmer training with an Austrian coach. Oh to be young and in love, or at least to be young or in love again.
Something Up My Sleeve
Which is hard to do when wearing a short-sleeved t-shirt…
Last night I started to plan Vacation (#1?) 2016. I have started looking into a bicycle tour across Germany. This is what we mid-lifers do, right? We plan trips to other countries to do things that sound fantastical. I have plenty of time to do the research, and of course have no idea what lifestyle changes will occur between now and then.
My admission of this plan should explain my the need to train more during this Winter that I mentioned the other day.
Whose Birthday Is It Not Today?
Man, for years I have been wishing ITP-Reader Lisa a happy birthday on the day before her actually birthday. I feel like such an idiot. Oh well, better early than never, right?
