Eavesdropping on Facebook:
Female work colleague (cringing, with hands shaking): “Just looking at you makes my eyes hurt.”
Me: “I’ve heard that many times before, even without the pink eye.”
If you are a fan of Judi’s House, now’s the time to help this fine organization started by former Broncos quarterback Brian Griese, by voting in the Vail Ski Challenge.
Ten worthy groups — including Concerts for Kids, Craig Hospital and the Denver Public Schools Foundation — are vying for a $250,000 donation from Vail resorts and all you have to do is visit the Vail Ski Challenge Facebook page.
You can vote for the organization that helps children and families who are grieving the death of a loved one find hope and healing within themselves. Griese started Judi’s House to honor his mother, who died when he was 12 years old.
Every vote earns Judi’s House $2.50 and it gets 2,000 votes, Griese has promised to get out the retired Broncos uniform and ski wearing his helmet, pads, the whole thing. Who doesn’t want to see that?
You can vote daily until the challenge ends April 11.
Eavesdropping on a woman on Facebook talking about her daughter: “Eliza fell and scraped her knee. As I cuddled her, I asked if she wanted some ice to help the pain. With giant tears rolling down her cheeks she said, ‘No, I want prosciutto.’ We are definitely raising a good little Italian.”
