Monday was a rough day.
Snow, cranky patients, a plow piling up a foot and a half of snow against my car in a senior living facility, and bad drivers made for a long day.
When I arrived home safely, I texted my friend, Gina, that the day had beat me.
She texted back “Monday 1, A 0”
To me, that looks close. It looked a pitching duel. I envisioned Kershaw vs Verlander. (Harvey is on the DL so thinking of him pains me).
I disputed her, texting it was more like 8-4. I did some good, but would need a grand slam to get back into the day.
I didn’t text it but I thought, ‘I really need Bill’s** perspective.’
And that is what she texted- “maybe we need to ask bill how we should officially score it.”
So, of course, he was consulted.
I expected him to ignore the request. I mean, really, I think he has better ways of using his time than scoring my day.
But he responded very thoughtfully & made me view my day as a success!
I got the win!
(I survived, I wasn’t fired, no one was hurt, and I wasn’t arrested.)
This exchange taught me 2 things. One, I have new criteria for a bad day.
Two, I am in desperate need for baseball.
