Could you have been any more hectic?
A frazzled 5th
Dear Swim Meet Host Facility,
As always, you picked the hottest weekend of the year to host this annual outdoor meet. I am surprised we didn't melt away into unrecognizable puddles! Oh and thanks for allowing us to set up our tent! Don't know what we would have done if we didn't have shade!
A sweaty and dehydrated 5th
Dear Coaches and Officials,
Please watch more closely the swimmers at the start of the individual heats...especially for swimmers who are out of place and take over heats/lanes that don't belong to them. Unfortunately, because this happened my Munch, who was ready to swim his heat, had to swim in a later heat with swimmers who were more experienced and quite a bit faster than him all because a misinformed swimmer insisted it was his event. Kind of discouraging to a kid, even though he improved his time, to finish in the back of the pack.
Keeping a close watch,
A concerned 5th
Dear Munchie Boy,
We are very proud of your results at this 2 day meet. Despite one disqualified heat (his goggles fell off causing an illegal stroke as he tried to adjust them) you were able to improve your time in every single event! I am most proud of the 20 seconds you shaved off of your 100 meter backstroke. Way to go!
Sleep in this morning...you deserve it!
You may drive this week. I am tired of being on the road over 6 hours to and from the Hickory swim meet. Yeah, I thought you'd appreciate this!
What am I thinking?
A travel weary 5th
Dear Cast and Crew of Wicked,
Bravo! It was a wonderful performance! We all enjoyed ourselves immensely. Standing O!
In defiance of gravity,
A captivated 5th
Dear Mother Nature,
You can stop with the hot and steamy any time now. Seriously. Don't you think a nice little cool front is called for? Please? Well, at least think about it.
With the utmost respect,
An overheated 5th
I am off to slay the laundry beast...have a wonderful Monday my friends!
