"The way I look at it guys is that we have one of two options." We were faced with a dilemma on our "Adventure Ride" yesterday. Joe and I were in-line skating. Bridget was biking.
Bridget was glinting her eyes in the face of the blaring sun while trying to focus on me. Joe was crumpled by the side of a heavily traffic-ed road taking on sugar.
"We can either turn around and go back home on the same path that we took to get here. It is mostly down hill. It would be easier...blah...blah..."
"OR?" they chimed in.
"We can wait until Joe feels better and continue on up the hill. It is a big one. It will be challenging...blah...blah...blahbitty..."
As she was staring straight ahead and straddling her bike at the base of the steeply graded hill with the traffic whizzing by her, Bridget quietly stated under her breath "I hate Diabetes".
In a calm and amiable tone, Joe evenly stated "Me too Bridget."
I said nothing.
In unison, they agreed to take on the hill.
