It rained all yesterday. A lot. It wasn’t till I got into the car this morning and went “!!” that I realized my windows had been open since Saturday. I was running late, so I didn’t have a choice – I went with being wet. My shirt got marked up by the dampened steering wheel, so I scrubbed that a bit in the sink at work, and so was wet fore and aft. And so on. Just run of the mill bleh.
Then I was reading email, and I’m not sure how I managed to open a message without seeing who sent it – I never do that – but the next thing I knew I was reading this:
I don’t think I breathed for a full couple of minutes when that registered.
Two business days?! I’ve been taking the test every chance I had for about twenty years. I’d have responded faster if I could get my fingers to work sooner.
I know it doesn’t mean anything, necessarily – it’s just another step and all. And, I mean, even in the unlikely event I did actually get on Jeopardy …
Hold on – need a second.
OK. I’m good. So – even if I did actually get on Jeopardy, I’d have to pay my way and for room and board, and my thumb would probably freeze on the buzzer (note to self: must begin clicking exercises) and all the categories would be sports and geography (I couldn’t pick Estonia out of a lineup) and I’d make a complete and total moron out of myself …
But I still wanna go.
I think I’ll go study football stats and European rivers.
