Turn up the heat
Ohhh, guess what! There was this tournament, and all these people who are incredible, and this ugly building which is like home to Region 4, and some briefcases and cameras and guitars… and there were also some people talking in rooms. I’m not sure what that was about.
…I remember when I walked through those doors for the first time two years ago, little dreaming how my life would be changed. And I remember when I first realized the truth. When I first knew, “I will never be the same again.” Christina Hastings, your pestering changed my life. I believe you now. I’ve come so far. I wouldn’t trade the change for all the comforts in the world. It has caused me pain… but oh, the joy! More joy than I had ever imagined possible. I won’t go back, because it has played such a role in making my life into a Home.
This is my last year, and I intend to make it the best that ever was. This Warm-up tournament was a good start, I must say. Thanks to everybody who helped make it so, and congratulations on all your achievements.
I feel Warmed-Up now. So the heat’s going up this week, and we’ll see what kind of gold comes out of this fire….
P.S. Here’s the quote exchange of the week:
Beth: So what has been everyone’s highlight of the tournament? Besides breaking.
Me: Besides Brady?!?
