So here it is, Christmas Eve. As I sit typing this eve in the soft glow of holiday lights, I reflect on the past couple of days…
Tuesday night I head over to the ‘rents to watch the BYU bowl game. Although a Utah fan, I like to support our local teams. But I wonder if karma does not like me to be so supportive and wants me to choose a side. Wednesday morning, driving to work at the unearthly hour of 6 something AM, I pull into my work parking lot. There is a slight, slight incline, but for some strange reason I decide to hit the gas, just to make sure I don’t get stuck. Instead, I plowed my little Honda right into a snow bank.
Could it be that I should stick with my Utes, and not try to make everyone in my life happy by supporting their sports teams as well? Luckily, karma was not too harsh on me, and the Utah team that played Wednesday night was also victorious.
But in all seriousness, karma was on my side as nothing more serious came out of my blunder other than minor damage, and a good story. First car wreck since 1996.
Christmas Eve tonight consisted of the two singles and the ‘rents playing games, eating bad pizza, etc….family traditions.
I will now finish up my sweet potato pie for tomorrow, and snuggle in the comfort of a warm bed, and watch my christmas eve movie……Do YOU know the story behind snowflakes?
