Um, when I was supposed to be writing yesterday, I was at my son's painfully long baseball game.
And then I came home and watched the most edge.of.my.seat basketball final game ever!
I love watching basketball and I'm a long time Lakers fan.
I am not, however, a big Kobe fan. I do realize he's a phenomenal player.
(Sorry – please don't hate me, but I've never quite gotten over the whole RAPE thing.)
** The hate mail is already coming in, isn't it? **
Here's some Twenty Four trivia I haven't previously shared:
When I was in high school I kept the stats for the boys basketball team.
I think I originally agreed to do the stats because the coach asked me to and he was very, very, hot. (Coach Perry – sigh!)
I also played girls basketball for awhile so I knew the game already.
Then one day, as I was keeping stats, a player fell to the floor shrieking.
He was HERE …
But his leg was ……. OVER THERE SOMEWHERE.
He had dislocated his knee and it was an ugly, ugly sight that left an indelible image on my brain.
One of the coaches came over and snapped it back into place and the boy SCREAMED.
** Shudder **
After that, I watched the remainder of the season's games with my eyes closed so I'd never risk seeing such a horrible thing again.
On a happier note, I wanted to show you my pretty, pretty necklace.
I've been into turquoise lately so I made this purchase awhile back:
I think it's both fun and funky.
Come to think of it, that pretty much describes ME, doesn't it?
