Multiple Choice

September 16, 2015

Oh, what to write about…what to write about…

I have narrowed it down to four possibilities:

1.The Davis High School varsity baseball team played a rousing game this afternoon against Yuba City and had the most unbaseball-like outcome. Davis won by a score of… ready for this?… 19-17. THAT kind of score just never happens. My scorebook is a work of art.

2. It RAINED. It rained a little while they played, and it poured as we rode our bikes home. We were drenched by the time we got home, but it was an uncommonly exhilarating ride, not just because we were wet and it was cold, but because water actually fell from the sky and it felt like we were part of some earthly miracle.

3. I had my first experience with acupuncture today. And suction cupping. And oh my oh my oh my oh my. If half of what he said will happen happens, I am soon to be in a much happier, less painful, less restrictive place. He stuck about a dozen needles in me! I’m so blown away, so thrilled, so optimistic. How could I not write about this one?

4. And finally. Jeb, Jeb, Jeb. When candidates were asked in tonight’s republican debate (the grownup debate, not the kids’ table one) which woman they’d suggest for the $10 bill, Jeb raised a few eyebrows with his response. A good answer might have been Rosa Parks or Clara Barton–you know, famous American woman who made a difference, you know, in or for America.  Jeb’s answer was Margaret Thatcher. Yes, that Margaret Thatcher, the former prime minister of England. In truth, he was probably just looking for a way to pander to Reagan republicans by linking Thatcher to Reagan and thus himself to Reagan. But.. instead, I think he just linked himself to his boneheaded brother.  Looking forward to the headlines tomorrow on that one.

Anyway… too tired to write tonight. But lots of possibilities for tomorrow…

    1. So clearly neither team took the field?
    2. A little too little a little too late for the big fires up that way?
    3. My wife went that route once or twice with some limited success. Needles and me don’t mix (my choice).
    4. Margaret Thatcher and my own mother bore a striking resemblance at one time, so I’m on board with this one. 🙂

      Chris, I’ve been thinking about you and your family. Fare okay?

      While I’m not a big Margaret Thatcher fan, I love that your mom has a doppleganger out there… 🙂

        Hey! Let’s stay on topic — insane baseball scores, inundations, needless needles, and foreign American money. BTW, the first time the U.S. issued a postage stamp jointly with a foreign country was in 1981 with Ireland when they released one with the image of James Hoban on it, architect of Obama’s current residence. He was a direct ancestor of my wife’s, she having been born a “Hoban”.

    Chris, you and your family just get more interesting by the minute!
