Column, game, and other things

Well, I woke up with one of those dark clouds like you see in cartoons raining over my head.  So clearly I still care about that damn game more than I thought I did.  I am always amazed at how much power the (wide, wide) world of sports has over moi.

Meanwhile.  Yesterday's column.  I like this one, I think.  I had another idea, but then something about the light this past week triggered a really intense series of memories about that time I was sick.

As I've gotten older, I think about that time from my parents' POV more often.  My dad had a brand new high-pressure job at BYU.  My mom just had a brand new baby.  They had just moved into a new home in a new neighborhood (and you have to understand TRQ often said she'd rather be trampled by wild horses than move to Provo).  And then they made my dad a bishop on campus.

I seriously do not know how they kept it all together.

Okay, I know I said this was going to be about the column, the game, and other things.  But, actually, there are no other things at the moment.  So yes, I did deceive with that title.

Have a good rest of the weekend, everyone.

Ann, I love that column. It was beautiful. I will have to think about a defining moment, like that, in my life.

That was one of my all-time favorite columns. (And BYU-Utah games, too, but neveryoumind about that.) Your pal, Heidi
