Wednesday, May 6th - comfort comes in Vegan Bolgnese

Why do I play in the rain. Really. I had a bit of a surreal moment in the middle of my ultimate game last night. It was chucking down rain. Biblical rain in the middle of a school yard field in Shaugnessy, a posh suburb south of Vancouver's downtown. There I was, lined up next to my crazy, life loving ultimate team. Variety of ages, backgrounds and ages all there, standing in the rain, waiting for someone to throw us a disc. Not an hour earlier I was on a conference call with one of my superiors superiors discussing incredibly heavy business and process issues. I couldn't help but laugh. I also got there late so I hadn't warmed up at all, I didn't have rain gear and so near the end of the first game I rang D begging for a lift.

He wasn't instantly willing. Actually, quite reluctant. So when a teammate offered to drive me most of the way home, I jumped at it. Guilt trips I don't need when I'm soaked, cold and achy. So I got home quite late, close to nine pm. I walked in an went straight to the shower. Pleasantly enough, when I got upstairs to the kitchen, D was making a pasta with veggie soy mince, eggplant, mushrooms, tinned tomatoes. ... and whole wheat pasta. In the decanter was a lovely French Cruvee. MMMMMM
