Tyrel has been running some lately…willingly! 🙂 It’s hard not to when there are so many beautiful trails to run on and such consistent weather. This particular event took place a few weeks ago but I think it’s worth mentioning…
The story goes – one day Tyrel asks, “do you think I could run a 5:30 mile?” Well, I’m honest to a fault sometimes, so my initial answer was “nope!” Followed by something a bit more encouraging like, “I think you can do most things and do them quite well, but off of literally no training, no. I do not think you can run a 5:30 mile. Plus if you could, that would be an insult to the rest of us who actually work hard to achieve that.” Ty is competitive by nature, obviously. The guy is good at everything and it’s honestly not fair and sometimes I pout about it. So me saying “no” really got him fired up!
We were at the track literally the next day, timer in hand.
It’s cheese flavored ice cream.
A friend of ours is from the Philippines and when we were over at his house the other night, he brings out this ice cream without the label and asks us to try it and guess what the flavor is. Despite it being yellow, I thought it tasted like pistachio ice cream. It kind of had a sweet nutty flavor. But I couldn’t explain the very tiny chewy bits that had a slight saltiness to them. I just knew I liked it. Tyrel liked it too. Then, when he told us it was cheese flavored, I kind of wanted to gag for a second but got past it. (Didn’t want to be rude.) You can find it at International food markets and apparently it’s a very popular flavor! I think we’d both eat it again if it were offered. The best part was when just after he told us the flavor, we look over to see our friend Mike nonchalantly spreading the cheese ice cream on a cracker. Pretty hilarious.
I do realize I post about random things sometimes. But I promised several people I would maintain a blog so people can see what we’re up to on a semi-regular basis. So because I keep my promises, and because I don’t specialize in recipe creating, home decorating, or child-rearing, this is what is produced! Just random things because that’s our life. And the purpose of this blog is to share our life with you. Because I don’t specialize in the aforementioned categories, perhaps I specialize in something awesome and I just don’t know it yet. Right now if I could choose something to specialize in it would probably be a toss up between playing the didgeridoo and taxidermy.
Have a great week! Go get some ice cream.
