I’m in a hockey pool with a bunch of people, including my husband, father-in-law, and the youth pastor. I was doing great, 3rd or 4th out of 13 until Ryan Miller went and got me hardcore negative points when he let in 4 goals so I traded him just so that he wouldn’t get me negative points again and now he’s got a shut out going into the third period. He better get scored on now or I’ll be really angry! I’ll have traded him for nothing! I don’t care if I win this pool or not but I have to beat Russ or Noah or Todd or all of them preferably cuz I’ll never let them live it down.
On a more sobering note, last night a guy named Jason Mattenly died. He was biking, doubling one of his friends when they went down and embankment and hit a tree, or maybe a couple, not really clear on the exact details. They were on their way back from a prom party. There has been at least one student from the grade 12 class at Caledonia die every year for the last nine years. It’s been from various different causes. Car accidents being the main cause but other things too, like cancer, have taken the life of a Caledonia student. I did not know Jason well, or at all really, I knew who he was because he was a bmx’er that was friends with coworkers of mine and was in the shop often. Having never lost a close friend I cannot even imagine what those guys are going through. I don’t even want to imagine what his mom is going through. I don’t even want to think about anything happening to my child! I get teary just thinking about it. I’ll definately keep them all in my prayers.
Anyway, I have to get off to play rehearsal for the play that never ends. No more after this performance. That’s it, I’m done. There are 9 minutes and 58 seconds left in the third period and Miller has still not been scored on. Stupid stupid stupid. Have a good night y’all.
