Dropping the Ball(s)

Speaking of boners: you know that emergency text that everyone was supposed to get sent to their cell phone at 13:18 CDT? Yeah, I never got it. So I’m guessing that if the Grand Nagus starts a nuclear war with Malta everyone else will be ducking and covering while I’ll be standing in the open, muttering, “Boy, that’s a really bright flas–”

Prime and I are among the few–other than those denizens of MLB Network and the like–who heard the entirety of the Rockies/Cubs game. Yes, there was cheering at the last out at the bottom of the thirteenth.  To be honest, Prime and I were louder than the whole of Wrigley Field and that’s not an exaggeration. That stadium was so damned quiet you could hear a pin drop. The only happy yelps came from the Rockies players. It was actually a bit eerie.

Today has been… interesting, to say the very least. The opener for today had to go home early; she was feeling nauseated and couldn’t stay. Our next Member Service person wasn’t due in until 14:00, so I had to run all of the walks from 11:00 onward. For reasons I can’t quite explain–except for maybe the fact that the Brewers are in the postseason–I was rather antsy and anxious today. I wasn’t the only one, as one of my co-workers said she felt the exact same and chalked it all up to the weather. However, my anxiety level dropped quite a bit when our next person came in and was gone when the third one walked towards the exit door. So maybe I was just stressing out over the fact that I was at the door all by my lonesome and wasn’t entirely sure how I was going to get all of the various walks done by myself. But the weirdness didn’t end there.

Since I got off at 15:00, I headed to the library. While there (and while tapping this out, no less!), the fire alarms started blaring. Apparently, this wasn’t a drill and we all had to evacuate. The fire department made an appearance and checked the building; we were given the “all clear” about ten minutes later. As I walked back in, I did thank the firefighters; it’s only polite, you know.

Like I said, today has been just plain weird. Adding to the weirdness is the fact that it was sunny not ten minutes ago and now it’s cloudy. We’re looking at possible severe storms later tonight, then the temperature will drop and we’ll be in the mid fifties tomorrow. Seems like everything has a case of the weird today.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
