We went to watch a futbol match last night, and I am sorry, I know I was raised in the hard core school of hockey, but these guys are a bunch of whining wimpy children...babies. I mean Holy Jeez. This game SUCKED. They were falling down and taking dives over everything, a big bunch of BABIES. I hate to sound so horribly cliched but I really did feel like standing up and shouting at them all to shake it off and take it like a man...I will admit I was a little surprised at this highly gender biased comment that surged forth in me, but OMG these guys whined and whined and whined.
From the admittedly little 'futbol' I have watched, I am developing the impression that these guys are a bunch of princesses taking a dive at any opportunity in the hopes of getting a whistle.
Bunch of wimps.
You may notice in the photo that the ref was a woman....she didn't have any linesmen to help. She must have given out about 7 yellow cards, and red carded one of the coaches, possibly two as well as a player. It wasn't a very clean game, and the coach got carded for sexist comments...I clearly heard 'chica' ....girly....then again, how often have you seen a woman's ref given the chance at a man's game, hockey, baseball football or basketball?
Beth is getting a little haunted by marmots all of a sudden... I seem to be having a synchronistic experience with Southern men....I posted about hanging out with them yesterday, and look who pulled into town!
To some of you this may look like a pretty average vehicle, but let me tell you, it's a whiplash builder here as people turn to stare....
On another topic, the man and I are debating radical surgery on the toasted shoe...A webostomy... I think it will involve the surgical attachment of a strip of webbing to the inside of the strap...hopefully I can do it so that it is reasonably comfortable...Pictures will appear to show the process if I can pull it off.
Cross your fingers for me.
I finally made it up into the mountains....it is so lovely. It takes a bit of doing, Chuck wants to stop and sniff every single plant on the way. Once I get him going it is OK, but getting him moving takes some convincing...
A big bit of good news, they got a computer into younger child's class so that she can do some Catalan work while all the other students are also doing Catalan. As I said before, I am not bitter, so I will resist the temptation to mention that there are only 6 weeks of school left. Better a little late than nothing at all.
One of my adult male students was, I think, trying to say to me that the class was challenging and interesting. He is at a very early stage study. What he did say was that I was very interesting but not easy.
I should hope not!
God only knows what equivalent horrors I have uttered.
