Today just seemed to drag on and on. All because the little one wasn’t around. The good news is that she’s coming back tomorrow morning.
Went to play cricket as usual today, but it wasn’t the same without her running between wickets, picking up stones and throwing them into the lake, standing in the middle of the pitch thereby bringing the game to a halt, basically, just making a nuisance of herself…
While on the topic, Thaïs’ knowledge of cricket terminology is increasing. According to her, there are 3 ways to get out: caught, clean bowl-out, and eb-lee-dub-loo.
At any point of time during the match, the batting team’s score can be any of the following 3 options: 46, 44, or 10.
If, for some reason, she thinks I’m not paying adequate attention to the game she tells me to go ‘feel’ (field). Never mind that I’m on the batting side!
OK! Till the next time. Can’t wait for tomorrow morning. Ciao.
