An Empirical Study – I knew it, I just knew it!! My fez shaped aluminum beanie does the trick… that’s why no martian has ever succeeded in reading my mind. The government… well that is a different story now, isn’t it? 🙂
Ok… on to more mundane matters. Got the house pretty clean yesterday with the help of Julia! It”s amazing how many clothes, dishes, etc. etc. etc. we can go through in a week’s time. In other words, spent the whole day cleaning (of course Christopher and I re-watched the classic Akira while we were folding t-shirts and sorting socks. What fun!
Nicholas had a 5pm soccer game at Bayland against St. John. STES has probably not beaten St. Johns in the last four or five years. They are the equivalent of a 5A school…mad talent! Mr. Lawrence had band obligations, so Nicholas had to play in goal. 20 seconds into the game, one of the St. John’s forwards lofted a curving cross which Nicco got to and caught right at the corner of the goal. Unfortunately his momentum took him into the post and the bonk on his head made him forget about the ball for a second… yes, it rolled right down his body and by the time he got it, he had fallen backward into the goal. A Laurel and Hardy moment as long as you are not that keeper, his teammate or a fan . Luckily, Nicco regained his composure before any more damage was done. The rest of the game was incredible. They had much more speed on the wings than we did. However, they were used to using their system of driving it deep deep before crossing and we were able to catch up and defend. Nicco made several miraculous grabs and the bar helped out a few times too 🙂 Joey Greer chipped in with a 40 yard Beckhamesque shot that floated in just over the keepers fingertips. The final score was 4-2, us. Probably one of the more exciting games I have ever seen the team play – enhanced by the fact that the temperature had finally dropped from 80’s to upper 40’s…. finally, true soccer weather!
Oh, almost forgot to mention, cigar fans…. I tried one of the samples from the convention today. One of the Ghurkas (Legend brand Churchill)… very "full bodied" robust cigar. Length was about 6" and took almost 1 1/2 hours to smoke. Definitely a good cigar – hits my top twenty list 🙂
Got home in time for Pizza and "coke and bookers"… watched Calendar Girls, read a bit, then called it a night. I could get used to this taking time off from work thing!!
