Time on my hands

The good news about getting your work done a day early: it’s done. Nobody will be mad for having it done early.

The bad news about getting your work done early, espeically when you’re four hours from home: now you have a long day to kill.

I’m finding this out right now. I was done before 9:30 and was ready to go at 10. I watched the first half of The Price Is Right, but got bored, so I got out of the room. I got to Buffalo Wild Wings at 11:30, and now I’m going to settle in for a long day of trivia. Dawn and Robb Amos are supposed to come around 4. 

I was poooped by time I left at 9:30 last night. I was dozing off. Tori caught me at least once. Then again, I was up constantly since 3 a.m. and drove four hours east. I should have been tired.

I was glad I came in yesterday. Got to see several people I had not in a while, including Shannon and Jaclyn.  

Back to Russell tomorrow. Hopefully back to KC at some point. I’m not staying through the New Year, though. I have no intention of starting 2016 the way I started 2015. 

Thing is, 2015 was pretty good at points. But after July 18 at 1 a.m., it went straight into the toilet and never recovered. Actuallly, it got much worse. Much, much worse. This isn’t the worst holiday, surprisingly. It’s been worse. 

About David

I am a sportswriter for a group of weekly newspapers in small towns across northern Kansas. I grew up in New Orleans, went to college at LSU and wandered in the wilderness until Hurricane Katrina finally put me on the path to my current job.
