on saturday morning
the following conversation occured...
somewhere in the middle a phone call was required.
b/c clearly it was obvious that shinguards are not meant to look
like teeth hanging out of a jack-o-lantern.
and for about 5 minutes i sat there asking myself why
on earth i had agreed to soccer taking up my saturday mornings anyway.
and then once we got there with a middle school field full of cousins it was all of a sudden exhilarating!
and i couldn't believe that we almost didn't let soccer take up our saturday mornings.
because spending saturday morning at the soccer field
wasn't as bad as i thought it would be.
it was actually pretty great.
i left with the intense desire to own a soccer mom umbrella.
you know the kind.
not that it was hot enough to need one that day.
i just felt like one day i might want one.
and so that is the story about how i learned to put shinguards on last saturday.
