A few weeks ago something rather embarrassing happened.
I was late for work and thus late for dropping off our daughter at daycare. I sign her in, get her situated for breakfast, kiss her several times, and then exit her classroom.
I figured I'd pay a visit to the bathroom because nature called and I wanted to feel fresher. I take a right in the daycare lobby and lock the bathroom door behind me. I'm minding my own business when a voice is heard approaching my position. My back is to the door as I complete my business. Suddenly I learn the absolute wrong way that I did not flick the deadbolt. I may have been hunched over with my pants around my ankles, or maybe it was just a dream.
It was very awkward the next few days as I attempted to save face in the daycare office. Nobody should ever see anyone like this. The last time I walked in on someone doing their thing was age 17. Then I had the misfortune of witnessing my elderly boss, Lorraine, pooping. I haven't been able to shake the image some twenty years later. We're not supposed to see our elders sitting on a toilet or some blogger "cleaning". Gulp.
The in-laws are in town from Florida and so far so good. It's really wonderful to see our daughter interact with them. Her new trick is to wear her bunny bathrobe and run around our house naked after her bath. She wears her robe with pride as if she were a professional boxer. She owns the robe. Yes, her pink bunny robe is monogramed in case one forgets her name.
Final note: this is to keep me honest. About a week ago, prior to mounting my triathlon bike for the first time in about eight months… I entered the following Facebook Update "Egan is beginning his trek back to Ironman status". Well I'm happy to report I've been to the pool two straight days this week. Probably a first since at least a year ago. I feel like this time I've really turned the corner and will be in fighting shape for this summer's triathlons. In short, I'm still on track to regain form. Keep me honest bloggers and away from the green tea ice cream.
