I attended a yin yoga class with a new teacher this afternoon. She seemed familiar, and after class, we connected and she reminded me that we recognize each other from her previous work at a brewpub in my neighborhood. 😄🙏


The combined efforts of my teammate Phillip's banana-tossing skills, my luck at Donkey Kong, and our ability to estimate the banana-weight of things earned us the silver at Bananalympics! We advanced to the finals and played a long, drawn out round of colosseum jenga against the other finalists. Alas, the jenga tower fell on my turn, but we did good.
