It's starting.

Meanwhile, in the outside world...

As we all know, it's opening day for major league baseball. And, of course, the first game for the Red Sox is in New York, against the Yankees. (Why? Is it just for the drama? Do they do that deliberately?) This means...

that a large percentage of the population of the greater Boston area will become pathologically incapable of speaking about anything else

that we will get to hear, again and again and again, the blow-by-blow of last season, in which the Red Sox apparently did something comparable to defeating Hitler

that Red Sox t-shirts and caps will somehow suddenly qualify as "business casual" dress for work

that I will go back to being awestruck and amazed as I try really hard to believe that yes, people really do care that much

and that I resume the precarious activity of trying to like both the Yankees and the Red Sox. Wish me luck.

You know, Kat, I could bore you to death with my incessant chatter about my latest forays into gardening. At least we can eat the fruits of my labor, something the Sox fans can't do (unless they ate the losing team and that's just yuck.) Also, I'm putting off starting that sweater, as I've been losing more weight and don't want make a too large sweater. So, I'll probably seeking your knitting knowledge sometime late summer, if you don't mind.
