item one: "polar bearing"
i check my e-mail this morning to find an e-mail from ramon with "Polar Bearing!!!" as the subject. uh oh.
Definition of Polar Bearing: Art of going thru discomfort, pain and senseless massochism as a person submerges him/herself in a cool liquid.
Well, in this ocasion I hope the person is you, and the cool liquid will be the Atlantic Ocean.....
Hola, this is Ramon, your coach, inviting you for to a fun Polar Bear day!! Join me and other fun loving friends for a 3-5 seconds (or whatever you can handle) jump in the Atlantic Ocean as part of our annual Polar Bear.
Please reply to this e-mail if interested in this fun crazy way of starting the year. Last year we had about 14 people. If you think it is a crazy idea, many people think that doing a marathon is crazy and freaking hey.!!!! .. you are doing it !!!
Things to bring: Swimwear (this is a PG13 show), towel, warm clothing and your crazy fun energy !
your coach, the one with the accent !"
i'm not sure if he's crazier for suggesting it, or if i am crazier for actually thinking that this sounds kinda fun. i've realize that in my 30-year-old-year, i'm accomplishing all sorts of crazy, weird things...and maybe this should be one of them?
item 2: removable tattoo ink
a Concerned Friend sent along the following links with an offer to pay the difference in the cost of the ink.
what do you all think?
