Running races are really fun especially if you win.
Winning for me is running my best time.
Or getting a sweaty kiss from Mr. Speedy.
Or not getting a wedgie.
Sometimes, I do place and earn sweet things, like this snazzy plastic blob of plastic:
One day, I shall melt all the plastic figures together and form a canoe.
I’ll call it Runner’s Raft.
And hope it does not sink.
Recently, Mr. Speedy and I both competed in a race that allowed the winner’s to cash in their prize money to their choice of store. I have never had a race that offered this type of award system, but by golly, it is a TOUGH DECISION:
Upon first glance, this award does have a strikingly similar appearence to job application but fret not- the only job I must do is figure out what I want to put my $30 towards.
But, I can’t decide.
There is a lot going on here.
Seriously, look at this:
I am lost.
I want to take dance lessons, make pottery, get a McD’s smoothie and my nails done.
And I want more running gear. And goop to eat.
I left this award sitting on the kitchen table for about 4.56 seconds and…
PIRATE scribled a medical drug note on it-
In addition to being a pirate, he is also a pharmacist.
He often writes things like this, never explains it to anyone, and goes about his day.
I asked him what I should use my reward for and he said “ACO Hardware.”
I told him I’d prefer to spend it on pottery or tango or food.
He told me that I am his most impractical child and foolish.
I told him that at least I am an impractical foolish child that runs fast.
Seriously though, if you had this- what would you cash it in for?
Do not say the hardware store. No. Not doing it.
