Rain in Medina, but it didn't stop us!

Up bright and early again (around 6:30 a.m.) to head to
Dan, Steve, Mike and I set about the task of building racks in the pouring rain.
OH, one “funny”: You have to imagine wheat I look like in the middle of all of this. I’ve been hauling around racks covered with sulfuric powder, at this point I was soaking wet from the rain, I’m wearing big floppy shorts and a big floppy t-shirt… basically I look like a puppy that was playing in the mud then got caught in the rain. At one point I had to use the restroom and headed up to the rec center. Upon entering the smaller bathroom (it’s a 2-holer) I found a group of about 15 high-school aged girls in PRISTINE condition, grooming each other (similar to how I see monkeys at the zoo do, but I kept that to myself so I didn’t get beat over the head with a Coach purse). I excuse me’d through the cloud of perfume and hairspray into a stall. As soon as I shut the stall door, I heard one girl say “EW! Did you SEE how dirty SHE was?” I wanted to say “Um, sweetheart, I’m still here… and I can hear you.” I also thought about saying “YUP and I’m going to make a BIG STINK, too!” or something along that lines that would completely and utterly disgust them forever, but instead I just chuckled; again fearing that one of them would chuck their mukluk at me. (WHY a couple of them were wearing fur boots in July is beyond me… but whatever… they WERE cleaner than I was, after all.)
