Well, Little League games are “just” 2 hours, right?
Yeah, but we have to get him there 15-30 early for warmups. Then we hand around 15-30 afterwards hitting the snack bar and cleaning up the field. It’s a 10 minute drive each way. 10-15 of getting dressed, shoes, sunscreen/bug spray before a game. If I have to get him from school, that’s at least 30 minutes more.
So, each game is a 3-4 hour commitment. Twice a week.
@typingmonkey This was in a thread titled “Missing chihuahua”. Also, another poster asked what kind of dog it is. Someone else posted a picture of a flyer for a missing Yorkie and asked if it was the missing chihuahua.
@typingmonkey Speaking of pencil sharpeners, I just want a simple razor-blade-in-a-box type one that a student might have in a backpack. I can’t find one anywhere. I finally went into a dollar store where I discovered I can buy a dozen in a clamshell for $2. No, I don’t want a dozen truly awful pencil sharpeners. I just want one decent one. I’ll even pay $2 for it. I hate this stupid economy’s dedication to shitting out huge quantities of trash.
I had a bizarre disassociative moment this afternoon. After having been to 4 different stores and finding none of the things I wanted, a little part of my brain pitched the idea that perhaps I was looking for things that only existed in my imagination. That really knocked me for a loop for a few seconds, and I felt the bottom dropping out before I quickly got a handle on things.
I want to replace the basketball backboard in my driveway. Because none of the online sources offer specs on attachment points I went to the Mart of Wal to go hands on. They had their offerings suspended 15 feet in the air where not even LeBron James could touch them and a big sign said GO TO OUR WEBSITE TO ORDER! I wish I were joking.
