So after all this time, Coach Monster finally learned that he is called “Coach Monster.”
“I don’t like being called Coach Monster,” he told me this morning.
“Well, it’s kind of late now,” I said, “What do you want to be called?”
Then I worried that I hurt his feelings – that he thought monster meant monster in the traditional sense of the word. I sent him a text message after class and told him that his nickname is not as bad as it seems. I call him Monster because he loves REM (the Monster album) and is sweet and googly like Cookie Monster. (But he’s also a badass triathlete… so, really, Coach Monster is all around fitting.)
I guess he can be The Coach Formerly Known as Monster.
Let’s have a contest for his new name! We can present him with a list of options, and the person who came up with the one he picks, wins something! Yeah yeah! Contest contest!
Anyway. Last night, the heel on my right foot started hurting. This morning, it is killing me. I have some sort of bruise that I can see. When I asked Google what it was, Google responded: “bruises on the heel can be caused from being overweight and running.” Bastard.
But I haven’t been running! I screamed at Google.
I’m kind of worried about it, because the bruise is on the broken foot. I am nervous that if I am at Iron Girl on Sunday, favoring the heel because of the bruise, that I might mess up the metatarsal area. Anyway, I am saying prayers. I need Iron Girl! I need it!
