And a good time was had... almost

Last night was so much fun. I got to the ballpark just after the gates opened and before I could even get past the ticket scanning lady, I heard a shriek of SUSAN!!!!!!!! It was Sophie, my favorite lifeguard at my old pool. I knew but had forgotten that she worked Mariner games in the past but I didn't know she still did. It was so much fun to see her again. She's not at the pool any more so I didn't even get to see her when I went back last time.

On to my seat which was really, truly perfect. I kind of wished I had brought my binoculars although they would have been a PIA to have had to mess with so it was kind of a wash. I watched batting practise and soaked in all the stadium stuff. There is so much to hear and see, it's a bit overwhelming and this was an hour and a half before the game even started!!

Robert and John got there in time for the national anthem. I was surrounded by Red Sox fans on all sides. It was pretty funny. As a bonus, Tuesday home games are when former player and current worst-ever-broadcaster joins the TV booth and ruins the games for my watching. There was a fair amount of satisfaction in being able to look up from my seat to the TV booth and give him the stink eye.

We let all those Red Sox people have their fun and take the lead and be all gloaty until the 8th inning when we took over and left them in the dust. It's funny. When the Mariners lose, it's really just another day at the office. No biggie. When the Red Sox lose, those people get all bent out of shape. The guy on the other side of me from Robert and John was really really pissed.

And it is very delicious to walk out of the game with the huge crowd and continue down the road with them all until I get to my very own front door and just fall into home. Never gets old.

I was all jacked up about the whole evening and it took me forever to go to sleep. Totally worth it.

Wednesdays are always busy at the pool. Except for today. Mostly just me and it was nice.

I turned off my air conditioner yesterday and it's still cool enough not to need it. I don't think that's going to last but I will enjoy it for now.

Today is cleaning lady day so I need to get off my butt and do all the things I would have done last night. Put away clean dishes, putting away stuff.
