That’s one reason I’m determined to make the international race happen this year. Aside from all the personal changes that might take place, who knows what Mr. Blondie’s job status and benefits will look like a year from now. We have no reason to think anything is amiss at his company, but history shows it's only matter of time til it's our turn.
Better use ‘em while we got ‘em.
The conversation in our house went something like this:
Me: So, the Brussels Marathon is on October 7th. That’s a good time of year to travel. It's easier to get to than the Lisbon RnR.
Mr.Blondie: Nods and mumbles acknowledgment while immersed in Words with Friends on his iPhone
Me: I found a really good hotel deal for the weekend too.
Mr.Blondie: Well…pauses and looks up for a minute... I really don’t want you running two marathons so close together.
Me: They have a half marathon option. Sooooo, can I do it?!
Mr. Blondie: Sure, fine with me. Attention back to iphone…..What’s a four letter word that contains a “Z” and “P”?
And there you have it. I’m officially registered.
Has a "big conversation" ever gone easier for you than expected?
