I am a liar

I said this would be a good long post--after all it is the end of NABLOPOMO but it is almost 10:30 and I have not even started my Phoenix yet. Here is my update from Chris:

He had his first physical test today and he passed with flying colors. He got his all time best score. So, he was not kicked out, but eight other guys were. Four for not getting their security clearances in time and four for having the wrong waist to height ratio or getting lowish scores on the PT. Lucky for us Chris got his security clearance...though neither of us knows when that was done or even that it was required. But, that is good. Chris said that he got a memo saying that it is not unheard of for 39 candidates to get kicked out each cycle. That has got to be an extreme (right?), but still.

Yay for Chris! Yay for your family! Good luck with the Phoenix stuff. And I hope you will keep posting because I love your blog, even if you don't post every day now that NoPoBloMo is ending.

I'll bet he's riding high now. I know he was pretty stressed about the pt test. Whew!

It's okay to lie, but the only way you can ever make up for it is by posting every day until I get to see you in person.

Also, I'm glad that Chris is proportioned appropriately. And that everything else went well for him.

Also #2- This is one of those comments that maybe I shouldn't leave for all the world to see because they might not understand how funny I am.
