We were discussing softball on the way to our practical on Thursday night. Corine was rebuking Joe for not playing, and asked why he didn’t. His reply? “There’s such a high chance of nothing happening.” AMEN, preach it, boy! That would most definitely be my #2 reason for retiring from my softball/baseball career!
#1 — too many little rules I’m not told about, and I break every single one of ’em. Not kidding. I somehow find all those little things that everyone thinks are common sense so they don’t tell me about them, and I break ’em.
#2 — it’s way too boring. Give me a stick and a little ball any day, PLEASE, and let me chase it around on the floor of a gym and I’ll be MUCH happier!
The highlight of Thursday (other than my old people!!!) was when we were sitting in chapel, and Mr. Funny mentioned we had a lot of missionaries and asked them all to stand and introduce themselves one at a time. I gasped out loud and nearly lunged out of my seat when a couple all the way over on the side of the chapel introduced themselves. HEY!!!! Home!! West!!! Family!! Mission Family!! I KNOW THOSE PEOPLE!! Mr. President saw my gasp and lunge which I managed to curb before it turned into a full-fledged sprint across the chapel, and laughed at me. Third year. And I still nearly go ballistic when I see a license plate from home, or people from home, or anyone from my mission family!
