Water you doing, dad?
I’ve been swimming again, back to my training for a spring triathlon, and strongly encouraging the kid to tag along to the pool to keep up her own skills in the water.
Sadly, what I see as an invigorating fitness hobby, she sees as punishment, and her impatience is a distracting multiplier against my own delicate motivation to do an hour’s worth of repetitive laps laps laps laps laps…
This is Pi Day #068 – March 02
Dad: The weather sure is great for some cross-country skiing.
Kid: i guess
Dad: C’mon. We both need the fresh air. We’ve been stuck indoors for weeks. We’ll just go to the park.
Kid: then let’s just drive somewhere — that’s kinda outside!
Dad: The point is to do something fun… active… healthy!
Kid: i don’t see how skiing around in circles in our park is fun — it’s just the same thing over and over and over again.
Dad: You literally watch the same episode of that TV show over and over again. That’s not boring?
Kid: you don’t understand anything do you dad?
