Something that makes you sad, starting with the letter L

ugh. This is getting ugly. How do Royals fans DO it? After tonight's game, I was a little cranky, so I had a little chat with myself in my head to keep things in perspective. Like most conversations I have in my head, it wasn't all that productive:

Chill out. It's just a game. Like Scattergories.


Right.

You don't get upset when you lose at Scattergories, do you?

Wait a second....that's a trick question, because I never lose at Scattergories.

Well, hypothetically speaking, if you did lose at a silly game of Scattergories, you wouldn't be angry.

Um...hypothetically speaking, if I lost at Scattergories I would be totally PISSED. Because I
never.

lose.
at.
Scattergories.


O.K. Poor choice of metaphor...because it's not like you were playing the baseball game.

No, you're right. Or I'm right. It gets confusing having conversations with myself in my head.

So, if you were just a casual observer of someone else's Scattergories game, you wouldn't get upset with the outcome if one Scattergories player happened to lose a half a dozen games in a row, right?

I guess not. Well, maybe. If 3/4 of the clothes in my wardrobe had some sort of logo supporting that particular Scattergories player...I might be annoyed.

Would you be less annoyed if the Scattergories player was really, really cute?

Mmm. Cute boys playing word games...................let's just stay there for a second.

Are you better now?

Yes.

But I kind of want to play Scattergories.

I fear that any further losing will cause me to completely crack up (even more), so I've decided to simply forbid it. I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner. The boys will win tomorrow because I say so. I have officially declared myself the boss of them. We'll see how that works.

Man, now I want to play Scattegories! Yeah, last night was particularly painful. We had all the ingredients for a win but someone forgot to turn the oven on.

i rendered myself a new Joe Mauer and a new Kevin Slowey...they now play for a team in Seattle...the Mariners, I think. Let's cross our finger that we (the Twins) too can play with a record of .354! Here's hoping!

Controlling the Twins would be awesome. If only we could control Chicago too...

Hey, good job! It worked! Now, can you make them sweep the Brewers this weekend and make all the money I'll be spending on gas worth it?? Thanks! :)
