Jake, despite other indications (see every a.m., when he rolls his eyes that clearly I do not know WTF I am talking about), is still young enough to be impressed about my abilities, and to think of my past as a wealth of untapped experiences and possibilities. We were watching a family that races dogsleds. "Wow," he said, "that looks so fun!" After I agreed, he asked, "Have you ever done that, Mom?"
No, Jake, I have never run the Iditerod. But thanks for the optimism.
