The Basketball Dream

I had the basketball dream again this week. Somehow I doubt it will ever go away completely.

Today I had a scheduled meeting which would involve being introduced to at least six new people in a semi-formal situation. Perhaps because of the dream I decided to wear my basketball socks so that if any of them were to see me and immediately say: "Wow. Do you play basketball?" I could say "Yes, did you ask this because of my socks?" And then I could have hitched up my pant leg an inch and shown them the socks. I figured this would have been a good mood lifter and acceptable out of the structured confines of a Big Four.

Alas, despite travelling quite a distance to meet them at their office, five of the six of them were working from home and we conducted the meeting on Teams. This is 2022, continued. The one person who was in the room did not ask me if I played basketball.

After what has surely been the coldest, most wintry September of my adult life I was finally feeling good today. October first brought clear skies, weather for shorts, cheaper vegetables, and a social BBQ to kickstart an entire long weekend of beautiful weather.

Seems a little strange that a single 96 year old lady halfway across the earth carks it and today I get a day off work. But in 2019 a single person got a little too close to a pangolin we all know how that turned out.
