23 Days to IMTX.
Last night I had sooked Beef Stroganoff in the crockpot and the 7yo and the wifey both said "lets eat Rosa's tonight". Rosa's is a fast food mexican joint....below a 'On The Border' but way higher than a Taco Bell....they make their own tortillas right there, fresh everything, fresh salsa, etc. So, I caved and said okay. As I was pulling out, I saw a solicitor and sent the wife a text letting her know to not worry about answering. I go and get the food and come back. Wife says the guy knocked. So...about 15 minutes later, while eating.....*knock* *knock* *knock*. It's him again. Didn't answer. About 30 mintues later.....*knock* *knock* *knock*. Seriously dude...... So, I call the cops. I attend meetings with, and regularly chat with, the deputy cheif of the McKinney PD. He said anytime there are door-to-door people, call the non-emergency line and they'd come and make contact, ask for their permit - as requried by city law, etc. So...I did. I then set out for my 3 mile run. I run the neighborhood loop 3 times and the sales guy is still in the area. Then, I see the police. He was making a U-turn and I stopped him and told him what's up. He said he saw him and was going to make contact. At that point, I had run for 10 minutes (and had 20 more minutes to go). I continue to run and as I turn back into the 'hood, the cop is still there talking with the guy, the guys trunk is open, there is another cop there, and it's been 20 minutes......this had turned into more than a "let me see your permit" and "you can't be here, now leave" situation. I was feeling bad after calling the cops because it was a guy trying to make a living......but apparently there was more to the story so I didn't feel too bad.
If you're keeping score at home and my story didn't bore you, you'll remember that I had Rosa's for dinner. It's the perfect pre-workout meal. And by "perfect" I mean "top 10 dumbest things you can eat before a run and swim".
3.2 miles in the books.....followed by a 25 minute swim.
During my run and swim, I began to have the mind-wander....just random things in my head. I was thinking about instagram and how you can hashtag pics. Sometimes, I'll click on the hashtags to see what type of pics are there, view other pics (I'm a vouyer guy), etc.....well, one tag seemed innocent to me, but apparently others use it for self pics of body parts, subtle nudity, etc.....which got me thinking......have you or would you post subtle/openly nude pics of yourself on line or texted them? I will be honest and say that I have. I have done it as a joke and as a seduction technique.....I have done it while somewhat intoxicated to friends (which to me is the funniest because they're not expecting it)......
If I have your e-mail address or phone number, I promise that I will never send you pics of me.....and by "promise that I will never" I mean, you better be on the lookout after 5/18 because I'll have a lot more time to drink on the weekends.
Tonight is a 2:00 trainer and 5 mile run. Legs will be cranky but Friday is my off day so that'll be some motivation....
