It will be 95 by noon, but I plan to be on the bike this morning anyway. I am doing a 2 hour sexual harassment training this morning, which I hate. California law requires this, and they made the “qualified trainer” requirements so onerous that almost no one can do it in house (even though it would be better to let us do train-the-trainer like we do for workplace safety). Instead, they created a cottage industry for lawyers and HR consultants (aka failed lawyers) to provide shitty, overpriced training that bores people. Mine is better and cheaper than most, but I don't like doing it.
A dear friend of mine is getting to a dark place and I don’t know how to help him. He has more serious health problems than me - heart and diabetes. He and I have been on parallel journeys fighting for better health. He got word yesterday that they think he may have some blockage, and they want to do an angiogram. He’s scared, and frustrated, feeling like all his efforts have been for nothing. This morning he is saying that if he dies today of a heart attack, he has had a good life. I don’t know how to help him. I just keep telling him to fight for his life.
Sorry for the downer of a post, Oppo.
