Greetings on this Memorial Day weekend. I was drawing another one of them houses, and I found myself particularly drawn to the American flag a-waving. It just seemed an appropriate thing to be doing this weekend.
Then there was the Indy 500. Do you follow auto racing? I sure as heck don't, but people I live with, particularly one whose name rhymes with "Queego", seem to live for all things auto racing.
So the Indy 500 was on yesterday. I didn't watch, but I heard all about the ending:
Magnum: The guy in the lead hit the wall just before the finish and another guy passed him to win.
Me: Aw, that's sad.
Magnum: Yep, and he's a rookie too.
Me: Aw, that's really sad. I feel sorry for his mom.
Magnum: Well, he managed to finish second.
Me: But.... second is really just first place last *sniff*
Magnum: He was driving the National Guard car too... on Memorial Day weekend.
Me: OH STOP, this story just keeps getting SADDER!
Wolfgang: Yeah, and the car YOU liked came in first.
Me: SH*T, it's all my fault!!!
See?! Auto racing? I should just stay away.
