I’ve had a couple of acknowledgements of the Navy SEALs here lately.  And they deserve it.

But while they go through the torturous BUD/S training, culminating in the all-but-humanly-impossible trials of Hell Week, yesterday I discovered an even greater challenge.

It was the combination of getting up early with Bug, putting together and later launching (twice!) a model rocket with The Reverend Doctor Vinoski Sweetness, running six miles in horrendous humidity, putting the boys to bed, then trying to stay awake to watch the ’80s sci-fi Muppet drama Dark Crystal.

Hell Week is doable.  What I attempted, as I personally proved, is not.
