Every four years is like the world goes crazy. Today, instead of going to work at my usual schedule, I was, shall we say, obliged to go see the inaugural world cup game. My boss comes over and asks, are you coming in tomorrow? (today) I was about to say yes, it’s just another game (obviously not a soccer fan), my class mate/project partner kicks into the conversation and says, “we could come in earlier and leave to see the game, then come back later”. I whiplashed a look on him, earlier??? Yes, earlier. They all seemed to be satisfied with the idea, and so here I am, awake an hour earlier to see the game.
Then I realized, it’s not so much the game. When you look at people’s faces while they watch the screen… priceless. That moment when they hold their breath before a goal… priceless. An hour early to work… priceless to see all that. Let’s go!
