I took Max out for his morning walk today. Autumn managed to creep into my life without a formal greeting — only the pleasant realization that she is here. My walks with Max have gone gradually from tank top to t-shirt to long-sleeve t-shirt. Only today when I zipped up my hoodie over my t-shirt did I realize that the formerly steamy pavements that we walked are now wearing a coat of crunchy leaves.
Seasons change, people change, without notice or reason. Sometimes the changes aren’t apparent right off the bat. They take you by surprise, and your only recourse is to either laugh or cry.
That said, I will no longer cry at change. Hear me? I. Will. No. Longer. Cry. At. Change.
From the Commissioner’s recap of week 2:
John (1-0) vs Kim (0-1)
The Sibling Rivalry Game
Kim hands John a crushing blow (similar to the many crushing blows John received in football on Saturday). She’s leading by 300+ points with all her starters played. John must rely on Brian Westbrook tonight to give him the win.
Actually, it was over 350 last I checked. Anyone out there who can forcefully step on Westbrook’s pinkie toe before tonight’s game? 😉
