after watching our daughter's basketball team slaughter their opponents 81-9, i met up with her coach to tell her she would be going home with us rather than staying for the boys' game. we had things to do tonight that we didn't want her to miss out on. when i offered the signed note to the coach and explained what we were doing, she looked at me with sternness. "you know i don't like this."
i said i knew that and that i would run extra for her, handed over the note and then left with said daughter in tow.
when we got home, true to my word, i went out to run a mile and then some extra as penance. what i ended up with was a 5K. when i walked in the door, i told my daughter to let her coach know the compensatory running had been completed.
i cleaned up, ate supper and now it's time for family.
