The Fairest Week in Review: 10/7

Last week my boss was all excited because her daughter’s wings had come in for her Halloween costume. Her daughter is going to be the… Halloween… Fairy… something? Apparently it’s a book? Anyway, my boss had them shipped to work, so she showed us: perfect, Tink-style fairy wings, only orange-y yellow.

Half-joking, I declared that I would have to borrow them for the Tinker Bell Half Marathon, and she replied with an enthusiastic YOU CAN TOTALLY DO THAT! So I now have wings, if I want them, and my boss reliably informs me that the wings would be the perfect color for a resident of Pixie Hollow known as Iridessa. I’m taking her word for it.

Me?

Training! Last Sunday I ran the Annapolis Run for the Light House Half, so I only had two runs last week. They were not inspired but they went fine. There was one thing I wanted to mention, though… what was it… oh yes:

Dear Leasing Office,

FIX THE TREADMILLS. THEY ARE NOW BOTH BROKEN. IF YOU DO NOT FIX THEM POST-HASTE, I WILL DO NOTHING IMMEDIATELY. I WILL BIDE MY TIME. BUT WHEN THE ALIENS COME, I’M VOLUNTEERING YOU AS GUINEA PIGS FOR THEIR OTHERWORLDLY EXPERIMENTATION.

Yours until the final frontier,
Jenn
