There’s no one thing to write about. So I’ll write about a few little things. Deal?
Amusement. My boss sent me this link. Shockwave is required. If you’re like me and don’t keep Shockwave installed, find someone who does and send the link, and watch them watch it. It’s even more amusing than watching it yourself.
Softball. We lost to an undefeated team, 12-10. I played left field, made one putout. A former teammate (from last season) sailed one over my head. I ran after it with all I had, and held him to a triple. I was happy about that.
I went 1 for 2 with a single, RBI, and strikeout. I wasn’t happy about the strikeout. I had a 2-2 count and I knew I had to protect the plate. I didn’t choke up on the bat. The pitcher decided to risk wasting one. But it wasn’t a total waste–the ball looked almost like a strike when I committed, but quickly dropped and moved away from the plate. Most softball pitches don’t have that kind of movement. Normally I know better than to swing at that kind of stuff.
I hit better when the other team doesn’t have a young, single, attractive female playing second base.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
It was my first game with my new glove and spikes and I was mostly happy with it. Not that I smiled once during the game. I’m too hyper-competitive for that.
Deep thoughts. Charlie asked the toughest question I’ve heard all year. No, it wasn’t about Unix. I sent him my thoughts, which provoked more thoughts His reaction to the things he’s read since has me thinking, but I don’t have time to write my thoughts appropriately. Tomorrow maybe?
