Mom and I used to play a game we called "That's good, that's bad". It's awfully similar to the YAY/BOO format.

  • I got a geeky wonderful MP3 player for my car a while ago. That's good.
  • Upon installation, the dashboard lights stopped working, meaning I couldn't read my speedometer or other handy gauges at night. That's bad.
  • I went back to Fry's today, and the guy who installed the stuff was there and was able to fix the problem in 3 minutes. That's good!
  • I kinda wanted to work on Switch today, but I didn't get around to it. That's bad.
  • Instead, I went and ate a leisurely lunch at a local restaurant and read a good book. That's good.
  • Unfortunately, this made me rush to get ready for a wedding of a good friend. That's bad.
  • I made it on time, though. That's good.
  • The problem with this format is that I need to make up something bad here, and there really isn't anything. That's bad.
  • It was a wonderful ceremony and a nice reception. That's good.
  • I wasn't seated with most of my friends for the reception. That's bad.
  • No, really, it wasn't all THAT bad, because I met a cute woman at the table, and I danced with her. That's good.
  • But I failed to ask for her phone number. That's bad.
  • But I told the bride that I would like to get in touch with cute dancing woman. And the bride smiled and said that she put us at the same table on purpose. That's good!


Well, we'll see.

Oh yay!!! I love that the bride sat you two together on purpose and you found her cute without knowing. =) I hope you get to dance with her again. =)

I suspect that the bride (Gretchen - I keep thinking of this movie, or sometimes this one when we don't use her name) might be taking a little more credit than is due. But it's a sweet story, and when our grandkids ask, that's the story we'll tell.

Am I getting ahead of things?

Maybe I should wait for the phone number before getting too excited about grandchildren.
