Both of my bosses are out today, so I have a few minutes. Quick update ... note - I still got so busy I didnt post this till Sunday night
It’s time for me to stop thinking of work opportunities as a football analogy “give me the ball and I’ll run with it” but I will now think of it in baseball terms, “here’s the pitch that has been thrown, no hit it … Hard”.
Also since my last post I finished two more books.
The Usual Mistakes by Erin Flanagan
A series of short stories about people who make mistakes that everyone makes, people who have to deal with the consequences of those mistakes and everyone around them. One of the interesting stories is about this woman who lied her way into a job at a plastic surgery place, in what used to be a Best Western. I kept thinking it looked like that shitty hotel we stayed at in Albany, not like the really nice Best Western we stayed at in Vero Beach. She befriends this young girl who is trying to get her Nazi tattoos removed.
The girl got the tattoos for some guy and now she regrets that people assume things about her, all because of the usual mistakes that she made.
Let me tell you a story by Red Auerbach and John Feinstein
I burned through this 330-page book in a few days. If you like basketball and the birth of the NBA this book is so totally for you. But if you’re not that big of a sports history fan, I could see it getting a little stale and repetitive at times.
What I licked most about this book, was that it was co-written by John Feinstein. Who for my money is the best sports writer out there. This is the fourth or fifth book of his that I have read recently and all of them were page-turners.
