TriEric: What do you want?
Blogger: How about a post?
Blogger: A blog post. Remember, you write a blog. Type type type...publish post....Blog post.
TriEric: Yeah....I've been busy.
Blogger: Excuse me. This is your blog. You posted last Saturday. Not last Saturday the 20th, but last Saturday the 13th. What the hell have you been doing?
TriEric: Work has been hellacious.
Blogger: Is that even a word? You are in the middle of a race report for Pete's sake.
TriEric: I know. I'm heading towards my bike in transition.
Blogger: You have people waiting for the rest of your race report. An IRONMAN race report!!! What is more important than that?
TriEric: The work that helps pay for my triathlon lifestyle. I'm not a pro you know.
Blogger: Puhleeeaaaassssse. Spare me the drama.
TriEric: Watch it Blowhole. I've been busy. After my last post I had to drive down to a customer between Dayton and Cinci. I had to spend the entire week there. I drove down Sunday just as the remnants of Hurricane Ike blew through the state. I was driving with a nasty cross wind pushing my car around.
I then get to my hotel around 9PM only to find that the area is without power, including the hotel. I'm a triathlete...I can go with the flow.....I stayed in a darkened hotel for the night.
My customer had power but I needed to work during the day. I moved to another hotel about 40 minutes away. When I got there, the hotel's power had just been restored. Power...but no cable and a very weak wireless signal.
So for the entire week I had no internet, except at my customer, and was too tired to do much else. Then I drove back Friday, worked at a customer that night, did yard work all day Saturday, drove to another customer Sunday to work almost all day, and now it's Monday and YOU ARE BITCHING AT ME FOR NOT POSTING!!!!
TriEric: NO BUTTS munchface. I'll get there.
TriEric: LEAVE ME ALONE. Yes my race report is important. There are alot of memories I have stored, especially from the run part of the race. I will get there.
TriEric: ENOUGH!!! I will get the report posted when I can. I know my readers will understand. They are real people....unlike you. I'm not going anywhere. The race report will be posted soon. Thanks for understanding.
