You know when you read through a 20-page document, take notes, and hope that you’ll be able to get it to coalesce into something that resembles a thoughtful piece on how the NHL is paying attention to All. The. Details. You know how that feels, right?
Then you keep telling yourself you’ll go for a walk to think it through except it’s too late to go for a “you walk” and you must go on a “Boomer walk”, which requires a lot of attention to a dog and the environment, hoping that he’ll behave on the leash. He’ll drag you through an area that will make your already wonky ankle just HURT and then he’ll decide that he has to rest and wiggle for like 15 minutes in a place that You. Do. Not. Want. He sees a car that looks just like his because it is the same color as 95% of the cars from that model year 2008. He’s a smart dog but doesn’t realize that he still needs to walk all the way back not just jump up into the magical vehicle that is right over there.
So, by the time you return home, it’s now time to cook up things for dinner because it’s that time. Then, you eat dinner, watch Netflix and realize that you should go on that “you” walk. Now, it’s a lovely night to go but your wonky ankle decides to still HURT, thwarting the peaceful mindlessness you needed. By the time you get home, you’re frazzled and can’t write and think. It’s one or the other and it’s not likely thinking that will win.
All this to tell you, I failed you this time and hope to get my shit together in the next couple of days. I really need to work on life balance.
In the meantime, please enjoy the players on the ice at Warrior.
