Guests Arrive

14 05 2010

It’s the annual Pole Pedal Paddle weekend, when outdoor enthusiasts swarm the resort-y town of Bend to race each other on skis, on bikes, in running shoes, and in kayaks.

And a good number of them are staying at our house.

Our house with no kitchen, with a plywood floor, with sawdust and tools in every square foot.

They have arrived.

As they began unloading groceries into the fridge (which is now in the garage) and sweeping up construction detritus, I chatted with them.

“So, Jason told you it was going to be like this, right?” I asked, all innocence.


“Really?  He said he sent an email saying it wasn’t going to be as comfortable as Karen and Travis’s house was last year.”

“That’s all he said.”

“Oh… Well, you did bring tents, right?”
