YHC suggested modifying burpees to deconstructed after the first round. After 15ish minutes and only 2.5 laps Omaha was called for the Thang.

Thang:

Brisketball with even teams of 11 vs 11. YHC forgot to tell Rosetta that it wasn’t above the waist tackle football as he did his best Ronnie Lott impression. Who knew Grease Fire had a cannon for an arm. Diving catches by everyone including Samples. Black Lung is fast and quick. Yellow team won but it took overtime. 6MOM for homework.

COT:

I’m going to piggyback off a great COT I heard yesterday: “Do difficult things”. “And don’t do easy things”.

My addition would be the last words of the book we just finished: “let us walk together.”

(I’ll circle back)

Riding the train to school in Boston I used to fake being asleep so I wouldn’t have to talk to anyone. I’d walk with my eyes down avoiding any connection with rando’s all the time not knowing I was missing out on people just like all of you.

I had this weird removed view of life where my home was my fortress of solitude and everyone else out there could do their own thing…I’m going to concentrate on my family and our own thing.

I drove my car into the garage, waited for the garage door to close, plus a few seconds for good measure before I got out – the pause was to make sure no neighbors would be around to strike up a conversation.

Being a dad I’ll take any chance to be around the kids and that’s how I got to be around SR, Tenderfoot, Beta, and on…

Now I’ll even do a CSAUP not to do hard things, or to avoid easy things, but to “walk together”.

I probably had so much in common with those Boston university students on the train…we probably would have enjoyed monkey humpers at Kenmore Square.

Bloodshot – Aye!
