Three Things Thursday

1.  I wanted to share with you a funny exchange that happened in my office yesterday.  90 yo woman comes in for an exam with her husband.  I get through the bulk of the exam and then put in the dilating drops.  I return 15 minutes later and here is what transpired:
Me:  Are you all blurry yet?
Her:    Worried? (really loud, cause she deaf-er than a hake)  I'm not worried!  What do I have to be worried about?  She goes off on a tangent here talking about I'm not sure what and then says "Well, I just tell it like it is!"
Husband:  Now don't tell it all.  Don't tell her our secrets! (I think he's trying to be funny.)
Her:  (again loud)  Keeper?  What are you talking about?  You are a terrible keeper!  You leave me home and the house isn't very clean!
Meanwhile I'm trying not to laugh out loud and trying to proceed with finishing the eye exam.  I felt a little like I was part of some comedy skit or something. 

2.  Returning from the Y at lunch today, an ambulance had it's sirens on and was coming from the opposite direction.  I pull over and everyone else on the other side of the road pulls over too.  It passes and a car that was further behind the ambulance pulls out and passes in front of everyone else that has pulled over for the emergency vehicle!  What the heck is with people?  Like she was trying to cut the line.  Can't you just stay in your place and let everyone else pull back into traffic?  Really?  Are you in that much of a hurry?  (And no, JL I am not talking about you from last week.....  This is a totally separate incident!) :) 

3.  Hubs and I are running the Tough Mountain Challenge at Sunday River Ski Resort this weekend.  It looks as though it's way harder than the Warrior Dash we did back in June.  And it's supposed to be 90 deg that day!  AND we are assigned the 12:40 p.m. heat.  Of course we are.  High noon.  90's.  Yah.  Rock on.  The cool thing about this one, is that there's a kids mini mountain challenge!  The kids are sooo excited!  There's a 4-6 and a 7-12 year group.  If they time it and give awards, I would be highly suprised if the Manimal (aka 6 yo boy of mine) doesn't place or win.  He is so pumped for this!  Race report and pics will be coming on Monday---if we survive....

Have a super weekend everyone! 

A little good luck shout out to Mandy (aka Caratunk Girl) who is racing Ironman Lake Placid this weekend!  Wow!  Such an achievement!  GO MANDY!
