Today started out so great…

Today started out so great. I got a good night of sleep and woke up refreshed. My wife looked EXTRA-HOT getting ready for work. I got a lot done early in the morning and had some time to play around in the afternoon. So I made and ordered some nice business cards, I am anxious to get them!

I called my buddy Horbi to see if he wanted to go to a hockey game tonight. Horbi is a really good guy and entertaining at the same time. He is from Puerto Rico so when he is speaking English there is a little bit of a language gap from time to time. Who am I kidding, damn near everything out of his mouth is funny! Not to mention his name. We used to work together in the same building, now he works at another building across town. When we used to go to lunch it was always great when a hostess would ask him his name and then we would get the re-translation when they let us know our table was ready. It always cracked me up how Horbi could become – Harvey, Herby, Hardy, Henry, Orvy – the list goes on and on.

One of the funniest all-time Horbi stories happened when we were in the office one day talking about Lost. I am not a Lost fan but my wife is. I was mentioning to Horbi how Lost is one of the first shows to really use HDTV and Tivo to the fullest and that a lot of things that you can see on HDTV you can’t see on regular TV and even with HDTV you sometimes need to rewind stuff and play it again in slow motion. So Horbi starts getting all excited and just bouncing out of his chair. He starts telling me ‘Oh man, I love Lost so much! My wife and I watch it all the time, I can’t get enough of it… Just talking about it now gives me CHICKEN SKIN!’

 It took me a second to realize what he was trying to say and I have to tell you – I am not sure I have laughed as hard since that day…

Anyway, not to end this on a down note, but after leading for most of the game our hockey team found a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory yet again. After three years you kind of get used to the perpetual losing and learn to enjoy the creative ways your team develops to create a loss out of a win. Horbi and I still had a good time though, so I guess the day ended as well as it started…
