Things That Aren't Funny

There was a rumor floating around that the pool by my house had heaters on and that it wasn't icy in there anymore. That gave me high hopes for this morning's swim! But then as I was just about to dip my toes in the water, the lifeguard announced that the water was 74 degrees. WHAT???? My heart sank. Dread filled my soul. It would yet again be another session that was more a matter of survival than a solid workout.

"April Fools!" laughed the lifeguard. "It's actually 80 degrees!"

See, that was not funny. But boy was I glad that I was gonna get a good workout in without going numb.

So then I kind of thought it would be fun to put a little practical joke up on the blog today... seeing that it's April Fool's Day and all... I was gonna announce that I was pregnant again (surprise!!)... but then how and when do you convey that it was just a joke? At the end of the blog? The next day after starting inevitably a bunch of rumors that might be hard to stop?

In the end I decided that A) It's not funny to pretend such a thing, and B) My poor mom would just fall of her chair if she read something like that online.

So just for clarification, there are no more babies on the way in this house. ;)

Last night I had a dream about the Honolulu Triathlon. It's an International distance race here in May, and rumor has it that it's going to turn into a 5K-40K-10K duathlon because it's likely the ocean will be filled with jellyfish that weekend. Grrr. That was going to be my only shot at an International distance race this year and I was looking forward to finding out what I could do, but alas, they're going to take away my strength and make me run instead... Anyway, last night I dreamt that I was at that race and they decided instead to make us swim in these flooded hotel hallways... only the water was like a foot deep so we couldn't really swim... so they led us, ankle deep in water, down this maze of hallways until we got to the deeper part, which was just barely deep enough to not hit your hand on the bottom. Somehow I ended up swimming alone around this maze of hotel hallways until the water dried up and I was all lost and frustrated. That wasn't funny either.

To end on a more positive note, Miss Popular here seems to think everything is funny. :)

Weird race dreams - they are certainly going around lately!!! And thanks for no April Fools joke :) I'm still peeved about lululemon's "live shopping site" they put up today.

Moana has such a sweet smile!

I'm not a fan of April first...Tim inevitably tries to play jokes on me and I am very gullible....thankfully he hasn't tried anything this year. But there are still 4 hours left in the day.

Isn't 74 still a pretty warm pool?

I always forget it's April Fools and fall for every prank.

And I thought you were a runner this year? Embrace that duathlon!

That is an awesome pic of Moana! She looks like so much fun. I'm sorry, but I laughed out loud at the lifeguard's joke - not a bad April Fool's! :o)
