“Add More Dudes”. That is the graffiti I saw yesterday scratched in block letters into the hard plastic wall of a bathroom stall in my building. I’ve been thinking about what that could possibly mean and I don’t think there is any sense or meaning of it in which the only possible answer I could be other than “Nope”.
I’ve started training in earnest for this year’s MS Ride. There are new pains in my body this year in new places. This is an unwelcome development. It’s a reminder that I can’t give up on exercise for six months and hope to not ache. It’s a reminder that I am Middle Aged. I’m sure to post a fundraising link in the coming weeks but for now, you are spared the image of me in lyrca.
These next two to three weeks are some of the hardest of the year. Spring is in the air. You can smell it. The sun is sometimes warm on your cheeks. But Spring is not here yet, but hope is, and hope sometimes makes a fool of Minnesotans at the end of March. When Prince wrote “Sometimes It Snows in April” he wasn’t kidding.
