We watched the opening ceremonies and have been watching the swimming closely and other events randomly. Both of my boys are on a year round swim team. My younger son is seven. He started going on and on about how he wants the next Olympics in our hometown so that he can go to all the swimming, gymnastics and as many other events as he can fit in.
I told him that the tickets just to the opening ceremonies were $2600.00.
He said, "Well,....I can see how Michelle can afford them, but that is a lot of money."
I had to think for a moment and then replied, "Are you on a first name basis with the First Lady of the United States?"
He has always been a funny kid. When he was 3 he was taking swim lessons and the instructors name was Michelle. He started calling her Chip. We explained her name was Michelle and he insisted that her name was Chip. Michelle went with it and let him call her Chip...and the next thing you know everyone is calling her Chip...all the lifeguards and swim instructor staff. I will never know why he thought she was Chip and not Michelle.
Good day today. I took an hour walk (6 laps around our pond) that is the longest time and most number of laps I have done since joining Spark People in early May. I have only been a sporadic walker but I have slowly increased from about 25 minutes and 2 times around to an hour and 6 laps. I have one playlist on my iTouch songs from Glee, Wicked and Rock of Ages (broadway not movie) which are fun. I am working on another playlist or two to mix things up.
