Not for all the money in the world would I be a mother. I think Mothers should be given special rights as citizens. I think they should be allowed to cut in line, get free Starbuck's, and be allowed 24 hour a day access to the Baskin Robbins of their choice. I think they should get paid extra at their jobs, and three days a week should be considered full time. I think we should start a custom that anytime you see a mother you should just say 'thank you' and give them $20 on the spot.
Let me tell you why I think this.
Thursday, I am having a perfectly lovely day educating the youth of our fine nation, and a seemingly small issue with a student turns into a pissing match that culminates in the little fucker looking me straight in the eye and saying, "I hate you!"
In that instant I saw this ungrateful turd saying that with the same, or possibly more, vehemence to the woman that gave birth to him.
I swear, the weight of the anger that I felt at that image made me a little shorter.
If I had spent 16 hours of searing pain expelling that insolent asshole from my body only to have him look me DEAD IN THE EYE and say "I hate you" because of something like changing his seat in the classroom, there would not be a prison strong enough to keep me from breaking out and beating him within an inch of his life.
On to running, which fortunately washed this from my brain, so I can stay out of prison and return to work on Monday.
8 mile trail run in The Forest at Nisene Marks. I felt good. I have the San Jose Rock 'n' Roll 1/2 Marathon tomorrow that I am run/walking with my Run Buddy, but she has not been training so I think we will be walking a lot. Then next weekend I am doing the full at the Bizz Johnson Marathon.
I took pictures on today's run, but most of them came out crappy, but here is a little bit of what it was like:
