TH is home from his trip. Syd and I are happy to have him safely home. :)

  • The hockey game tonight was really fun. Our team had 37 shots on goal compared to their 26.
  • We won 3-2.
  • I wore the hermoine hat to the hockey game tonight and it was quite a bit less itchy than the Alpaca one, so I’m very happy with it!
  • Also, the two gentleman behind us played Statler and Waldorf the entire game (imagine the old muppet guys in the balcony as hockey fans).
    Their comments included:
    -(when the people next to us left right after the national anthem) “what can they possibly need 22 seconds into a game?”
    -“this looks like the second worst power play we’ve had all season.”
    -“be careful, don’t hurt him!”
    -“he’s just being too lackadaisical.”
  • The near death part of the night~
    As I was eating peanuts, I inhaled the skin of a peanut. I was halfway choking and TH inquired if I was ok, I shook my head no. Now, in case you’re reading this and don’t actually know TH, he’s about 6’1″ and he’s very broad (think Viking). He’s worried that I’m choking to death b/c he can’t hear me breathe and he has had some emergency training, so he pulls back his hand like he’s going to give me a mighty smack on the back due to how we’re seated and his eyes focus like he’s going to give it all he’s got and I saw my life flashing before my eyes. I jerked my hand right in front of his eyes and make the scuba sign for ok! he said, “you’re ok?” and I nodded and he said, “take a breath.” like he didn’t believe me and I was choosing death by choking rather than be struck to remove the object.
    I loudly inhaled and then began laughing which did not improve my partial choking situation. Eventually with my eyes watering, I was able to return to my normal state. I continued laughing. I could just imagine him explaining to the paramedic how I’d been choking, but now, the object was gone, but my back was broken.

  • The only thing the game was lacking was a hockey fight. Oh, what a night! :)
