Eric was texting me about a game going on against the evil Tampa Bay faction of wife beaters and convicted felons...
I didn't know it was him...nor was I the slightest bit interested in some random Tampa Stupid Bay game...nor some random Chicago White Sox game...I was knee-deep into an online checkers game against some person from China and I was not about to lose...
Took a breather when the game was done...funny...I don't even recall right this moment if I beat the China dude...
Checked my texts. This is what I read:
1. Chicago is whooping up on Kazmir. Buehrle is no hitting them thru 5inn
2. He's thru 7 now, and Happy Birthday Darlin
3. Oh Shit he is pitching a perfect game
4. Perfect thru 8
5. And he faces the bottom of the order in the 9th
6. Ok here we go. 9th inning
7. Buehrle is perfect. 9th inn starting
Well, NEEDLESS TO SAY...i RAN LIKE HELL to find my remotes...wondering how long ago the last text arrived...wondering why the hell I hadn't somehow KNOWN about this...through the baseball gods or something...
TREMBLING as I clicked on the television, hoping to find WHICH STUPID CHANNEL MLB EXTRA-INNINGS would have this game on...and
BOOYAH! It was being shown LIVE on ESPN. I came in right about here...
watch and enjoy my friends. What an awesome way to officially start my day...and I am soooo grateful for good friends...who never give up on you...who continue to reach out...and bring a little slice of heaven into your world.
Happy Birthday, indeed. ~kathryn
