me: "Can you tell me your address please?"
reply: "who the hell is this?"
me: "jeez! Sorry I must have the wrong number"
reply: "oh sorry not trying to be mean i just do that to a number that keeps messing with me who is this please"
I didn't respond. Then, the person who I will now refer to as Psycho Texter (PT) keeps texting.
PT: "I really am sorry may I ask who this is?"
me: "It's no problem"
PT: "I really am sorry"
me: (trying my best to get rid of him) "Really. Dont' worry about it"
Then my phone rings. Psycho Texter is calling me! Obviously I reject the call but soon panic because he surely heard my voicemail recording. Then here come the text messages again...
PT: "Now I feel bad may I call you"
me: "No" trying my best to end the convo. but wanting to say something more like "no you psycho! leave me alone!"
PT: "May I please call you though"
me: "why?" ... hello psycho!
PT: "Cuz i just would like to say hi I guess"
me: no reply
PT: "oh ok well my name is charles who were you lookin for"
me: no reply
PT: "I still feel bad though I really do"
me: no reply
PT: "Would i be able to make it up to you?"
me: no reply and sufficiently creeped out by now and give the phone number to the hubby so he can call the guy and get him off my back
PT: "#$&@ my first day in the US and I already pissed someone off i don't even know"
me: no reply
Brooks makes the phone call...
B: "Hi is this Charles?"
B: "charles, stop texting my wife"
PT: "I just feel bad because I cussed her out"
B: "It's fine. It was just a misunderstanding. Just stop texting her."
PT: "ok I just want to let her know I'm sorry"
B: "OK I will tell her. Don't text her again."
Seriously dude, using remorse as your tactic to make "friends" is not cool!

Advice for women who are too pregnant to function anymore:
Inevitably your husband will come home to find you unable to move under the weight of this gigantic fetus you are carrying and will want to know why the house is a mess and dinner isn't made and then you'll want to stab him because this is all his fault but you don't have the energy to find a clean knife.And you'll want to explain how completely exhausting being pregnant is but men never understand so whenever Victor would say "How can you be tired? You hardly did anything today!" I'd respond, "I made someone's ear canals today. Inside my stomach. Without even using my hands. What did you do today? Paperwork? God, how exhausting. I MADE SOMEONE'S NERVOUS SYSTEM."Then my husband would walk away, suitably impressed. Or scared. Either way he left me alone. And this is how you have a successful marriage.

Tea With Milk
Not sure what I'd do with them all, but the thought of receiving a once-a-month package of perfectly sharpened colored pencils, with delightful names, in beautifully awesome hues, makes me happy.

Next, we skipped around the corner to Gourmandise (bakery). I was absolutely smitten by the tarts with sparking fruit and the deliciously flaky looking pastries. It was lunch time so I ordered a simple cup of vegetable, beef, and barley soup with a wheat roll. It was delicious. I'm already planning my next visit where I hope to be able to try one of each item in their display case. Seriously.

Look how photogenic he looks as he speeds by on his sweet road bike.
My super duper camera skills captured his splash as he jumped into the pool for the swimming leg!
And the classing post-race pose with the bike.
