Picture this....heat index 118º, real temp only 93º....60 year old fat lady on golf cart playing in a golf tournament!!! What in the name of God was I thinking?? Well, I'll tell you. I didn't want to bail on my partner. To my credit, I did drink lots of water and Powerade Zero, but I soaked through a hand towel wiping my hands and brow. (I have now purchased a ShamWow!! for this purpose.) Four long, hard, torturous hours of this. Now the really good news.....we'll be doing it all over again tomorrow!! And lucky me, it will be hotter and more humid. At 60, this is clearly madness. (Well, actually, at any age.) There is a possible reprieve in my future, however. Currently we are having high winds, and are in a Severe Thunderstorm warning area. More storms are predicted as the evening wears on....so I'm kinda secretly hoping for a gully washer that will cancel tomorrow's round. Fingers crossed, everybody!!!
Not wanting the fun to end, I'm scheduled to play in another tournament on Thursday at another golf club. So group, "Hi, I'm V and I am officially a Dumb Shit!!" (Group responds, "Hi V". ) After today's round I did come home and ride the bike for about 30 min., so the Perfect Child can't get too much traction on her quest to catch up in the Great Cardio Challenge. But, I think my cardio days are numbered the remainder of this week.
Since I want to be taking it easy for a while after this ridiculous 3 day stretch, we'll be going to Omaha again to help "The Pistol" (grandchild #2) celebrate his 2nd birthday. And believe you me, I will need every bit of energy I can conserve to keep up with him. He is, indeed, "The Pistol".
I'd better sign off now. The storms are getting worse, winds are blowing harder, and trees are falling near our "hood". They are showing pictures on TV of large trees near us that have been uprooted. Our trees around here are all pretty small in comparison, but I'm afraid the computer might suffer a "strike" by the lightening that's all around.
I'm off to begin "chillaxing" and preparing myself for another fun filled day.
