June 19 – Something You Are Listening To
aka. Post 19 of Those 30 Posts in June Blog-Every-Day Posts
My fellow runners will know that a lot of my “I can’t run tonight” excuses tend to revolve around dance.
Not me. I’m far from a dancer. Rather I’m the dad of a highland dancer and the husband of another one. I guess by majority rule we’re a dance family. I’m outnumbered. Running comes second… right after dance.
This weekend was the weekend of bagpipes, that weekend each year when I get to sit in the audience and be an appreciative dance dad, the guy who patiently sits through a pair of three hour long performances, mostly of other people’s kids bumbling through their own performances. Or unfortunate, such as tonight and the guy who literally took of his shoes, rested his bare feet up on the railing in front of him, and then –just to go full on annoying– took a phone call in the middle of one of the performances.
So, if you really care about what I was listening to this weekend… a lot of bagpipes… and one inappropriate cell phone conversation.
