Good morning crew,
What I really needed this weekend was 48 hours of uninterrupted relaxation. What I did was spend half the day on Saturday at the taekwondo school for promotion testing.
You might be surprised to hear it, but spending five hours standing barefoot while your back and legs slowly cramp up into knots is not as relaxing as it sounds.
Getting kicked in the fingers while the kids try to do their board-breaking is actually a relief. At least I get to bend and stretch a little bit.
Laugh it up,

A boy, frustrated with all the rules he had to follow, asked his father, "Dad, when will I be old enough to do as I please?"
The father answered immediately, "I don't know, son. Nobody has lived that long yet."
An English professor announced to the class; "There are two words I don't allow in my class. One is gross and the other is cool."
From the back of the room a voice called out, "Yeah? So, what are the words?"
Our armored car arrived earlier than usual, so my deposit wasn't quite ready. As the young man waited patiently for me to secure the bag, I said, "Sorry to hold you up."
"Delay, delay," he corrected me. "We don't use that other phrase."

A British friend of mine once found himself at a dinner party sitting next to an attractive American woman. The conversation turned to cricket, and the woman asked my friend to explain the game.
He agreed and embarked on a lengthy explanation of the mysteries of "silly mid-on," "fine-leg," "googly," "chinaman" and the like.
At the end he sat back, exhausted. The woman looked at him, shaking her head in wonderment, "That really is remarkable. And to think they do it all on horseback."
