Enter Sandman

By Wyatt Earp | July 26, 2007

What a day. Actually, it is more accurate to write “What a night,” since last night was a long one. Here are the highlights of my last 24 hours:

  1. After work, I had the pleasure of taking Kyle to his fourth street hockey game. So far this season, Kyle’s team was 1-3, and he had a total of 3 goals and 3 assists. Today was going to be a banner day for The Boy, though. Although his team was down by four goals in the first period, Kyle helped them storm back by scoring 3 goalsthat’s his first hat trick, gang – and 1 assist. His team won the game by a score of 10-9. It’s official: at 6, he’s more talented than I am now.
  2. When the game was over, I trekked to Manny Brown’s with The Badger, his brother Sean, and Sean’s wife for Quizzo. It’s the first time I had been present in months, and I was anxious to get to winning. Unfortunately, I sucked on ice. Although I was still the go-to guy when it comes to movies, I blew a few easy questions in the later rounds. We had to settle for third place. Sean got the biggest laughs of the night when he thought that the “Night escorts for the Underground Railroad” were named “Uncle Toms.” Nice.
  3. After Quizzo, I stayed at the bar downing Guinness with Badger until 1am. By the time I got home, it was after 2am, and I had to be up for work at 0545. Three hours sleep and a hangover is not conducive to good detective work. After sleepwalking through the first few hours, I snapped out of my funk just in time to go home. Heh. Tomorrow, I took a vacation day because of my injured knee.
  4. Speaking of Wounded Knee - that’s an Indian joke, son – the X-ray and the MRI are both scheduled for tomorrow at 1pm. If you’re a religious type, say a little prayer for me – I think I’m going to need it. I am hoping for the best, but am preparing for the worst.

So, how was your day?
