It has been a busy week finishing up final projects for school, but that doesn’t mean I have not been able to play and have some fun. Other than the sense of accomplishment with school, here’s what stood out as highlights this week:
Torturing my Ex-Husband
It’s a long story how I ended up with my ex-husband’s car, but I have it for two weeks. It’s his baby. He knows I love, more than any other driving experience, to drive a sports car with stick fast. This is what has him worried. Well, that fact and the texts I have been sending him.
“Enjoying speed. Tomorrow’s goal is 6th gear.”
“I am an over-achiever. Got her in 6th gear a day ahead of schedule. Won’t tell you how many times.”
“Next up is reprogramming all the radio stations.”
“Near miss with grocery cart in parking lot. Other than that, all is good with the Mini.”
“Maybe I hit 100 mph.”
“Will cut you a check for speed camera tickets when you are back.”
I am not so terrible though. The car is still in great condition and I am thoroughly cleaning it. He probably won’t agree, but I am going to try to negotiate joint visitation with the car. After this week of texts, I doubt he will agree.
As for his responses, this was my favorite:
“TAKE CARE OF MY CAR!”
Minor League Baseball
The kids and I drove to see the Hagerstown Suns minor league team play on Wednesday. The reason for us to drive such a distance for baseball was to see Strasburg pitch. He has been assigned to this team as part of his rehab. It was a great night for the three of us.
Major League Baseball
Last night I went to the Nationals game against the Reds. The weather cooled and there was a nice breeze; we had great seats; and my companion last night is entertaining, funny, and enjoys baseball as much as I do. It was an exciting game and a perfect evening.
It seems perfect to share a walk-up song for one of the Nationals players as Song of the Week this week. Most of the players choose rap and heavy metal. Morse, however, stands out with “Take on Me” by A-Ha. It was played as he walked up last night and I just had to laugh. It is a song I remember from high school and is not in the same music genre as the rest of the team has chosen. There has to be an interesting story behind why he would chose this song. I was able to find the video, which I remember watching on M-TV (back when they played music videos!).
