Nervous? I think it’s obvious I’m On Edge!
Hey, how did you know it was track anyway?
Two years ago It was a baseball tournament. I went with my brother but had my own room. Last year I went to the same track meet which I just got back from but don’t didn’t have trouble sleeping. I brought my family this year & last to the track meets.
I kind of think it’s less about who I’m with and more about how it goes the first night. At the baseball tourney, first night I was all cozy in bed and getting sleepy so I decided to set the alarm and go nighty night. Oops, no alarm clock in the piece of shit Palm Springs motel. Okay, call the front desk for a wake up call. Nope, the MFers don’t answer. I don’t have anything to set for myself and I don’t want to wake up my brother if he’s already asleep so I got paranoid that I’d over-sleep. Yes I can get highly strung at times.
On this recent trip, the track meet is held in the same town my parents live so we stayed with them. Me, my wife and my daughter slept (at least they did) out in my Mom’s art studio. I slept on an airbed that got a little too cold because the first night I didn’t have enough covers on top of the bed so I got cold from the bottom. Mostly the problem though was that I had to get up about every hour to take a piss. I have no idea why, I didn’t drink all that much. I think once I have trouble the first night it gets into my head and I become a basket case.
By the way, Pangloss, the track meet is part of games conglomerate called Huntsman World Games. They have everything from Archery to Zebra riding. Last year, in addition to doing track, I did do ping pong because my dad helps run it and he wanted me to do it. I didn’t have trouble sleeping that year though. This year no ping pong because I wanted to focus my effort on track.
