We All Have Our Crosses To Bear
It's with a heavy heart that I must report that the above picture reflects the two activities on the agenda for today.
I know, I know, while most of you get the privilege, or I daresay, the joy of going to work today, I have to suffer through a day of golf and fishing.
It's not going to be easy. But I'll muddle through somehow. Not that I'm trying to rub this in by any means. Why that would make me a dickhead of the tallest order.
There will be some adverse conditions to overcome.
1) The temperature. The forecast calls for a temperature of 76 degrees. Everyone knows that it's much, much better golfing weather when the temperature is 77 degrees.
2) Abundant sunshine. I may have to wear sunglasses to protect my eyes from the Sun's deadly rays, and deflect the reflection of abundant sunlight on what the weatherman called pristine and calm water conditions.
3) There are unwashed dishes in the sink. How will I ever be able to concentrate on hitting a good golf shot knowing that those dishes will languish there in the sink for an extra 8 to 10 hours?
4) How will I be able to enjoy the promised calm and pristine river conditions knowing that a load of laundry will have to wait an additional day to be done?
As you can see, it's not going to be all fun and games for me today.
