I totally forgot while writing last night's OPUS, that Number One Daughter also had a race yesterday, her first of the season (God, I am worthless as a parent). The Head of the Ohio, in Pittsburgh, where her boat came in 6th (of 14) and 2nd (of 4). Don't ask me to explain, rowing is the most complicated sport on earth. Apparently that is a really good finish. Little NOD's eight came in at 16:08.119 (that would be 16 MINUTES). This is what they train for all year round and drive hundreds of miles to participate in, these sprints that no spectator can see without CIA-type binocs, and, if you sneeze, you missed it. Still, i like to go to them. (God, I am such a good parent!).
Don't think I didn't mention to my running partners yesterday that my daughter was in a race too, a race that would take oh, approximately 15 minutes, while her mother was busy killing herself for six hours!!
NOD turns 19 on Monday. Happy Birthday little NODDIE!
