In celebration of the Melbourne cup today, I decided to chuck a few dollars at the ponies to test my luck. My bloody horse came in 4th. 4th !! Bloody Evil Eye, Poppy Eye or whatever it is called was coming in 3rd and then, oh, I think I’ll let that other horse get in front of me.
Oh well. It was only $5. Guess that will teach me to bet on the horse with the best personality.
I also had a WEC (work experience chick) with me today. I had no idea what to say to her the entire day. And the longer you don’t say anything, the worse you feel for not saying anything. So after a few hours I finally got up the nerve. I turned around, looked her straight in the eye and said “I’m going to lunch”
