It’s four days before TBRDM and it’s all I think about. There are running books and magazines on my bedside table, in my office, and in my bathroom! Even my laptop has a TBR sticker. Everywhere I go there’s something to remind me about D-Day.
So let me interrupt my TBRDM posts with a quick post not related to running.
Last week, on Valentine’s day, I went out with my college girlfriends. We call ourselves “the toothfairies”. The five of us headed south to Tagaytay for a day of R and R. Madel, who works in Saudi Arabia, came home for a three-week vacation with her husband Ed. It was really nice catching up with her. Her stories about the Saudi culture amazed me. It was interesting how Ed would treat a female orthodontics patient with out seeing her face. He can only see her mouth! But women are allowed to show their face to women. So Madel would describe to him the patient’s face so he can correct the her facial profile.
Anyway, we drove around Tagaytay and we found the Puzzle Mansion. It holds the Guinness World Record of the largest collection of puzzles made by a single person. That lady surely had a lot of free time in her hands. It made me want to finish one…but nah! 🙂

When we left the Puzzle Mansion, we saw a beautiful pineapple field. So we stopped to buy some. A Tagaytay trip won’t be complete without some road-side shopping, right?
