Did you know?

Did you know that a hiking stick should be taller than you? This fact comes from eavesdropping on some dude with his kids on our hike last weekend. It makes sense when I think about it, so I'm taking as fact.

Did you know that I sprained my ankle when I was in first grade jumping on the trampoline in my "Sunday socks" (which, of course, are exceptionally slippery)? Actually it was all my sister's fault (as most things are) because she bounced me and I landed in the springs. I hopped around on one foot for weeks.

Did you know that there are places in the world where it never gets this hot? "so why don't you move there and stop whining?" you ask? Well because I like it here. And I really only hate the first few weeks of summer where they slap you in the face with oppressive suffocating heat. In a few weeks I'll be singing praises to the barbecues, gardens, food, swimming, camping and hiking. But for now I'm just trying to breathe when it's 85 degrees INSIDE MY HOUSE at 10pm.

Did you know that Tommy did a little better at church today? I had him during the 3rd hour, and he was tired, and crabby, and we spent a lot of time walking in the hallway, but there was very little screaming, and mostly just a lot f squirming.

Did you know that they closed I-15 in my American Fork last night? This was in order to roll a 2,000 TON bridge into place. Not to brag or anything, but it doesn't take 4 mammoths to put me in place. And while I'm not jumping out of bed every morning, I certainly don't need 300-and-something wheels to roll me around. I think "more mobile than a bridge" might be worth putting on the next version of my resume.

Did you know that walking around in Lindon, Utah pretty much guarantees you'll see people you know and love? And probably you'll see more like 10 of them. Makes for a lovely Sunday evening.
