My inebriated cheering section


Tonight after the kids were in bed and after I finished watching the continuation to the Anne of Green Gables series (which I just found out about, but was released in 2000 and it's about time to finally get some closure on the Anne and Gilbert love drama) I decided to go jogging because it is so nice out and I've been slack sooo...It was 10:00 and dark but I went anyway on my regular and well lit route. About a 1/4 mile from the house I started to hear what sounded like a loud party getting closer and as I rounded a corner I saw a house ahead on the opposite side of the street with about 40 people outside with lawn tents set up and everything and you could tell there was some drinking going on. Well, I kept my course and as I approached a woman started shrieking (yes she was) THERE is someone JOGGING!, she got louder and repeated it three times so by that time everyone's attention was on me so I raised my arms into the air like Rocky and kept running and they started cheering for me - "Woooo!" and "Forget about your health and come join us!" Well, I kept jogging and not 5 minutes later a police car passed which one of the other neighbors probably called because of the noise. I had a small glimmer of hope that maybe they wouldn't be outside when I had to pass them again but not so. On my way home they were still there (but not as loud) and of course I didn't escape unnoticed. So I yelled "Woooooo!" back at them." "Hey jogger! Way to be dedicated!" "Hey jogger, free beer!" I must say it made the run much more interesting and funny. Also I finished the BOM again recently and have restarted it and just happen to be on Lehi's dream - so of course some parallels came to mind there.

That is really funny! I can imagine the whole thing playing out which makes it even funnier! Glad you're getting in shape...sadly, I am not.

What? Another Anne of Green Gables? Why was this not headline news? I mean, good job running and all, but MORE Anne and Gilbert! Holy Cow! I'm so renting it.

Heather said...

I KNOW KIM! I thought the same thing. HOW did I not hear about this until 8 years after it was released ;)

Heather said...

Also, supposedly they released or are releasing an animated version of all of the movies for younger kids....

hahaha, hilarious!

Go Runner girl!

Nice job on the new blogger look as well. Erika has been wanting to change ours but I honestly have been too lazy to try. So, she might be coming over for some blogger help soon. :)

Thanks! :) I'd love to have Erika come over and Blog, that would be fun! Thecutestblogontheblock.com is super easy and free and you don't have to retype all of your links and stuff, so it only took like 3 minutes after I found one I wanted to try. I am going somewhere myself soon to learn some stuff too so maybe I'll have some more to pass along soon...
