June 13 — Happy hour

I’m the kind of guy who needs every conversation aid he can get, so I hate how TVs are mounted in so many restaurants and bars. We’re at this place for fish and chips on a Tuesday afternoon and college baseball is on. Freaking college baseball. Who cares about that? I didn’t until it showed up on this giant screen ten feet from me.

The game pulls me away from my friends constantly. Other than a question I halfheartedly lobbed out toward the end of the conversation, I can’t remember what we were talking about.
