I saw the strangest thing this morning.
We were walking to school past the PT field behind our house, like we do every morning. Some guys (and girls) were still counting and doing pushups. Some of 'em were doing pullups at the pull up bar. Some were coming back from their run. And some guys were standing around all sweaty and grassy.
One guy was smoking.
He did not have a cigarette, but his head was totally smokin' hott. He was shaved completely bald and mist was rising from his head, swirling into the air. I'm not kidding. This really happened.
It looked like he was wearing a cloud-ish stocking cap, staring at his forehead and rising up from the back of his head. It was like the exact moment of evaporation when liquid water changes to gas, happening right on that dude's head.
I have never seen that before. I don't know if the light was just right, with the sun shining bright behind him. Or if it was because of the cool morning temperature (around 70 degrees). Or what. But it was pretty darn cool. I wish I had my camera...
If the kids hadn't seen it, too (and pointed and asked loud questions) I would wonder if I had actually seen it.
In other news, I went on my regular morning run, just before sunrise. As I was heading out of our neighborhood (in about the same place where we later saw the smoking man) I stepped on a rock, twisted my ankle and almost fell down. Oh the embarrassment. And ouch! My ankle is still a little sore. But I went with my dad's favorite advice of "keep walking on it" and made it through my 3 miles without any other trouble.
And - last item of business - I filed our taxes today. Woot Woot! I heart TurboTax!
