The Hydrant

Some days you're the dog.....and some days you're the hydrant.

Today was a hydrant day. I took my project management certification exam this morning -- 200 multiple choice questions over four hours -- and despite much preparation and effort, I did not score the 82% required to get my certification. I'm about seven points shy of passing, which is doable but nonetheless disappointing.

Multiple-choice exams are like little adventures. So many times two choices can be eliminated and a game ensues between the two remaining. Obviously I wasn't able to match wits with the person who wrote the exam today. Sigh.

But tomorrow is a new day. Tomorrow we head to Lake Lure, North Carolina for our friends' wedding this weekend. There we'll get to catch up with Chris and Deb Holm and their son Cody from California -- the first time we have seen them since my short-lived career of marrying people as a civilian justice-of-the-peace in Yosemite.

In addition, Lake Lure is most famously known for being the location where Dirty Dancing -- quite possibly the cheesiest movie ever made -- was shot. Cheese aside, don't be surprised if Amy & I come back with a picture of us in the lake like the one below.

Now I've.....had....the time of my I've never felt this way before.

I know you know the words.

Next time around, I'm the dog by the way.
