This is the only song that came to mind, for that entire gruling hour, I met with "A" yesterday.
A: Hi Barbie! Didn't wear your cute little belt? What if you get thirsty while we chat?
Emz: Oh Ken, you are my knight in shining armour. You will fight for me. Die for me. Deydrate for me.
[Fine. What I did say was] . . . "Bite Me. It's sorted. let's move on".

Now, I love movie quotes almost as much as I love music titles.
The problem is, working from home, I rarely get to share my unique talent with others.
And the Pita, well he knows some movie lines but not the classics [i.e, Goonies, Better off Dead, Clueless, Tommy Boy, Airplane ("don't call me shirley" and the awesome sequels), Mr. Mom, Farris Buller, etc]. He knows more like Grease, Gone with the wind & the subtitled, Sci-Fi & kung-Fu type movies]. Which makes it pretty hard to crack a funny when no one around here gets it.
Wait ---- m a y b e , I'm just not funny?!? Naaaaa. That can't be it.
But this quote pretty much sums up the last 7 days of my [running, race, personal] life:
Jack Butler: My wife and I went to the movies the other day, we saw Rocky. While I'm watching it, I'm thinking 'This guy has taken some falls' you know.
Auto Worker 1: Which Rocky was it? 1 or 2, or 3?
Jack Butler: I don't know. Three I guess. But...
Auto Worker 2: Hey, did the guy have a mo-hawk like Mr. T?
Jack Butler: OK forget Rocky. The point is... when you're down, not not exactly out... I mean, I mean you gotta hang tough... I don't know.
Auto Worker 1: Well Hang tough baby! Do what Rocky would do!
Auto Worker 1: He didn't see Rocky .
So guys, when the Running store guy asked me a few days ago "so how are you going to tackle this race? you going to break it down? what will you do at mile 29? what's your game plan for this 50 miler? "
And I paused, smirked then gave him a big white toothed grin and said, "to finish".
Even though this is NOT the answer he was looking/hoping for.
I'm not going to race this race. Call me a wuss, if you want. I'm just in it to finish. And I'm totally fine with that.
But on the subject of "Ken". I don't need him.
