05:02 pm: El Tigre
Iris often quotes her mother as saying that, "Youth and energy will never triumph over old age and trickery." Taking this message to heart, I nodded when she said that we should just walk to the top of the hill, not race. Then, when we were maybe 20 ft below the top, I stopped to lean against a tree, and asked Iris to come over to take my pulse. When she got distracted looking at something on the ground, I ran to the bench at the top and fell there panting and nearly fainting with exertion. Iris very reluctantly, and only after I admitted cheating, agreed that I won.

On Saturday, when Iris beat me to the top of the hill, I declared her El Tigre. Now I am El Tigre.
