The warm before the storm

I went out for a glorious bike ride after work tonight.  I was home at 3:30 this afternoon, which felt like a little bit of heaven to me.  The retreat was OK.  It is so weird to be with a bunch of women who are all younger than my daughters - my youngest children.

Tonight I was playing Words with Friends and played the word "hoe."  The person I was playing with sent me a message "that is a bad word."  Are you shitting me?  Really?  I wrote back, "it is a garden tool!"   What kind of world do people live in where "hoe" is slang for "whore," and not a thing to dig with?

Minutes ago, I got a text message from my son that said "we are home, I will call you tomorrow."  How awesome!  I could not be happier.

And on that happy note, I am going to lay my sober head on my pillow and thank God for another sober day.

Sober makes the morning worthwhile and the evening worth staying home to play during. Thanks for sharing.

When you say glorious ride I know exactly what you mean.

I'm still a sucker for team building events but I like them much less now that my co-workers are also younger than my children....and you know I just don't care much for kids.

The people coming into my field get younger and younger--LOL--but I'm glad that they are there and enthusiastic. It's refreshing to see that.

Maybe the person you were playing with was using the Urban Slang dictionary!
