Three Things Thursday
- I need a new 4 mile race PR. My current 38-ish “PR” was from my first race ever back in 2007. I was very excited to run sub-10 minute miles at the time but I can do much better than that now. Four mile races are very rare around here. The track club hosted one a few weeks ago, but The Mister had to work so I couldn’t go. I’ll be on the hunt because I think that’s a record I can knock out the park now.
- I used to be a Twitter hater but now hardly ever post on Facebook and live on Twitter! Even if I don’t post status updates, I’m am always scrolling through and catching up on the going-ons. I think I like Twitter better because I don’t know most of the people in real life. I feel like I can be more “me” and definitely more random on Twitter.
- I just finished listening to Tayari Jones’ “Silver Sparrow” on audiobook. It is a very good read/listen. The book is a coming of age story told from the perspective of two girls who share a bigamist father. One sister knows of the other but the other child has no idea her father has this whole other life. The father’s actions made me so angry at one point that I was cursing him out loud him in the car! Does that make me a crazy person? The book made me think – how would I treat a person that I discovered was my sister and I had never known about it? I remember this was a storyline in one of my dearly departed favorite TV shows – “Soul Food” on Showtime. The sisters totally shunned the half-sister in that scenario. It is kind of a shame because the person deserving all the scorn is the cheating parent – not their offspring.
