Top Ten Signs You Might be a 3-Day Crew Member

Last month, we shared the Top Ten Signs You Might be a 3-Day Walker. We couldn’t possibly leave out the crew, now could we?

10. Going out and driving your car just doesn’t feel right, somehow, if it’s not blaring music, and covered in flair.

Your glove compartment is full of window paint too, isn’t it.

9. You “shop” for your Halloween costume in your own closet.

Pretty princess. The gal on the right is lovely too.

8. Siri asks you, “Are you sure about that?” when she sees what time you set your alarm to wake up.

Sooooo early, and yet, so happy.

7. On chore day, your partner asks you to help with the sweeping, so you go get in your car and drive around looking for people holding their arms in an X over their heads.

After this, we’re going to pick up trash for fun!

6. Instead of “Where are you?” you text your husband, “What’s your twenty?”

Pick up milk on the way home? Copy that.

5. Your bike wears women’s undergarments. Proudly.

This ride takes unleaded gas and a 42DD.

4. All you want for your birthday is a Leatherman and some work gloves so that you can be better and faster at cutting the zip ties you got for Christmas.

They come in packs of 1,000, which should last you a month or two.

3. You stand by the treadmills at your gym so you can cheer for the people walking. They don’t seem to mind, except for when you stop their machines once an hour to remind them to stretch.

I’ll totally fill your water bottle too.

 2. At parties, your “signature cocktail” is six gallons of perfectly proportioned Gatorade.

We’re bringing string cheese apps to the potluck too.

 1. You gladly take 4 days of vacation time to volunteer and make a difference in the fight to end breast cancer.

Because: this.

    As a 7th yr crew member-I can identify with all ten ;-)! I think Siri would need to check in to an exhaustion clinic if she tried to keep up with crew, eh?!?! {Anyone noticed she gets a bit bossy when you don’t go the way she says to?! “Re-calculating” etc. 😉 } I don’t have a Leatherman-but I do have a mini-Swiss Army knife that comes in handy 😉 Sherry L, Camp Services {See y’all in October!! I celebrate b’day 62 on Day 2-yippeee! Can’t think of a better celebration than fighting BC with 1,200 or so walkers and about 400 or so of my closest crew buds! I’m sure I’m not the only one who thinks the roar of those moto’s heading out is sa-weeeeet! 🙂

    • Loved this comment, Sherry! I’m sure you’ve seen a thing or two in 7 years on the crew! Looking forward to seeing you again in October. 🙂 ~Erin
