Glasses

Today i put on my glasses... and yet the words were fuzzy and kinda dark... weird.... I took them off and the words were equally as fuzzy. Put them back on. Fuzzy. Darker. What the hell? Why don't my glasses work anymore!? I kinda freaked out a little. Until i realized my glasses were still in their case and i was putting my sunglasses on.

Rejects

The Mighty, Mighty Woodcocks softball team is now 2-1 for the season. We clobbered our last opponents called "The Rejects" 29-9. Ouch. After the game they gave us a cheer. Nobody ever gives a cheer after a game in our Berkeley Co-ed softball league. We thought it was super sweet. We all looked at each other and thought, eh.. why not. Lets give them a cheer back. Its only fair. So we all gathered around in a circle and reached back to our 10 year old little league brains and pulled a familiar cheer out. We yelled in unison, "2-4-6-8 who do we appreciate?! REJECTS! REJECTS! REJECTS!"     Yay! We threw our gloves in the air and smiled and waved at the other team. The team in the other dugout just stared at us... a very stoney stare. Hummm... thats weird. Just then the umpire came over and said... hey, uh... woodcocks... their name isnt the rejects... its "The Standard."     oooooooooooh..... ouch.... not only did we beat them all to hell 29-9 but we called them Rejects.       Thats gotta hurt.....

Sprinkler Burgers

I decided to surprise Michelle while she was out running errands and have a BBQ dinner ready for her when she got home. (Enter madcap sequence here) The on and off thingy for the backyard sprinkler is in the front of the house. She parked the car, got her groceries outa the back seat and proceeded to turn on the sprinkler as she walked to the front door. The sprinkler head was of course placed incredibly close to the BBQ. So much for her surprise gourmet burgers....
