I missed yesterday's entry due to my agility and because of the natural athletic co-ordination with which I am gifted. Let us return to the scene of the incident for review. As I was watching the football game on Sunday afternoon, there was a break in the action and I made the decision to take a quick bathroom break. Knowing the football time out is normally one to two minutes, I casually strolled toward my bathroom goal line and called a play for the quarterback, Ralph Sullivan.
The receiver was prepared and the play called for a fake to the tight end and then a quick p*ss to the receiver. Unfortunately, Ralph fumbled and the center was late with the snap, causing a delay of game. Upon final execution of my bathroom play and the ensuing celebration, I heard the game on television had resumed.
In my haste to return to the living room and see the next play, I mistakenly thought the right side of the doorway was wider than it was and attempted to pass through a non-existing space, thus slightly injuring my shoulder and my knee. I still do not know who won the football game on television, but due to Ralph's bathroom fumble, my final score was Bathroom 1, Jimmy 0. Today is the first day that I have been able to sit in one postion for more than five minutes.
Odds And Ends: On November 24th, a Norwegian passenger ship, the M/S Explorer, with 154 passengers aboard hit an iceberg off King George Island in Antartica. Fortunately, the captain ran the ship aground and everyone was safely taken to other nearby rescue ships.
My question is, did anyone besides myself, see the movie, Titanic? I mean, duh? Sailing a passenger ship near iceberg filled Antartica? Methinks that there were probably 155 passengers on board, 'cause some broad with a jeweled necklace was found sitting on top of a wooden crate, yelling, "I ain't moving my fat ass off this crate and I ain't sharing !"
The Pictures: Todays pictures are a quick hodgepodge which I put together while my pained knee sits patiently telling me that I shouldn't be overly creative today. This being the final thing that I do before completing my daily entry, the results are that I like the pictures, but didn't enter as many as usual.
