The Elf Needs Food Badly.

And water.

Lots and lots of water.

Today’s theme is: redeem.


That’s my coupon for all the Gatorades I’ll be buying this week.

Because summer showed up over the weekend.

And I haven’t stopped sweating since it arrived.

Yesterday was a normal Monday.

Batshit fucking crazy.

Work was a blur of errands and emergencies and people needing into places to fix things.

And then I reffed my first game as solo center referee.

Because everyone else was already reffing.

So my first ever solo game was for 13-15 year olds.

Who have been alive and playing soccer longer than I’ve been into the sport.

They took mercy on this old man rookie referee and played a pretty clean and honest game.

So that happened.

I had this big plan of how I was going to slowly work my way into doing my first solo game with 7-9 year olds.

And the universe laughed at my plans.

No wading in for me.

Right into the deep end.

I’m sure they’ll have more spots opening up now that they know I’m in.

And the tournament is coming up in a couple of weeks.

I’ll probably be on call for that too.

I’m going to be so sweaty for the foreseeable future.

At least I’ve got coffee in my life again.

It’ll power me through the days where I’m drained from all the running.

Speaking of running, I should stop running my mouth and start running errands.

See ya’ tomorrow.

More soon. ~SC
