According to various social media applications, today is (#)National Best Friend Day. Well, my soulmate is trapped at work. I asked Madison how she would like spend National Best Friend Day and she said something about the beach. I told her that I would not be able to go to the beach due to the hideous sunburn which still partially covers my torso. Now, perhaps some of you are of the mind that I should never take my shirt off, regardless of the status of my skin. To those people I would like to say that as long as people are legally able to wear calf-high socks with slippers, I will take my shirt off at the beach and pool.
It just so happens that National Best Friend Day is also the USWNT’s World Cup opener. It is also the first day of the 2015 MLB First Year Player Draft. All that means is I was hell-bent on getting home by 1:15. I took a chance on finding a playground at Waikele Elementary and the Goob and I were rewarded with two pretty awesome play structures. Mad was watching American Ninja Warrior before we left the house and when we arrived at the playgrounds that’s what she saw.
Here is my Best Friend’s American Ninja Warrior run. Madison’s commentary appears beneath each picture.
Obstacle #8: The Twisting Snake. It was super-hard for me because in the middle it started to twist. So I went under the ropes. I was scared because I felt like I was going to fall. I made it, then I hit the button for the end of the course. I’m moving on to the second round.
