Have you ever had one of those days where you woke up and you just knew it was going to be a great day? You have you last exam, you're feeling like the O's are gonna sign Tex, and you're coming home for almost a month. Then, quickly, everything falls apart. You get to your exam and realize that maybe you weren't completely prepared. Sure, you knew a lot of the answers, but you still felt uneasy the whole time. Then while you're waiting in line to hand in your exam, you read on your cell phone that the O's are falling out of the running for Tex because they haven't "upped their original offer." (I still dispute this claim because....1. The O's GM doesn't let ANYTHING come out and....2. The day before, a colleague said that when one team upped their offer, all the other teams did as well......someone HAS to be wrong!) So, you go back to your dorm feeling less than thrilled, but still excited because you know you're going home! Then you see your exam score from Monday and realize you didn't do so hot. It's ok though, because you're GOING HOME!!!! So, your mom finally arrives and you're going out to eat before heading home. Once you sit down, she informs you that your dad has melanoma (Stage II C) and more tests are going to happen in the next two weeks to see if it has spread and how serious it is. Finally you get home and realize that you have to sleep on the couch because your brother is sleeping in his bed where you were supposed to sleep because your grandma is staying with you while she recovers from an accident falling down the stairs.
Yeah...it's been one of those days. You know what I mean?
