We had a great time at the game last night! The weather was perfect! The Rangers won, the crowd was a hoot, and I got to see two outfielders run into each other and drop the fly ball they were after (never seen that live). All that was awesome, but the hilight of evening was the flex cam…
During the game, there was a camera guy constantly trolling our section. We all got a little scared when he started filming people right next to us for the kiss cam. What a slap in the face that would be? Wade and I on the kiss cam!?!?
Well, we were sitting next to our good friend Drew and when the camera guy showed up for the flex cam, I knew this was my chance. I called out to the camera man, “FLEX CAM! FLEX CAM! YOU NEED TO GET THESE TWO!”
He quickly turned toward me and I pointed to Wade and Drew. They were obviously being recorded, but both of them froze. Just as their images popped up on the Jumbo Tron, Wade pulled up Drew’s sleeve and pointed at his “guns”. At the same time, I had pulled up Wade’s sleeve and done e same. I looked up and all three of us were on there. Those two guys could not believe I had done that. We all got a good laugh.
On another note, I just found out yesterday that one of my biggest dealers (they have three locations in Texas) is getting a realityy tv show. They contacted my company and said that they want to use me in the show, but since it would be so much advertisement for Stag, they want some money for it. They haven’t spoken to anyone else because I’m kind of an anomaly in the industry. I don’t think this will happen for several reasons, chief among them being that my company is CHEAP. A close second is that they wouldn’t want to show any favoritism to one dealer in such a conspicuous way.
I read my horoscope every month and the Taurus horoscope for September is extremely generous. It said that, although last month was a great month, September will be extraordinary! It specifically mentioned love and home and so far, it couldn’t be more accurate. It even said that as the moon becomes fuller, things will get even more amazing! Now, I rarely put any thought into these, but I can’t ignore the really good one! Selective comprehension? Possibly. Okay, totally!
Lastly, as I drove into downtown Dallas the morning, the streets were empty. I came to a stop at a red light. I took in the urban scenery and suddenly, I couldn’t catch my breath. I realized that I was in the middle of my former life. I worked in high-rise building, on top of Dallas. I had a condo in Uptown. I was married. Work was my passion. I was just shocked by how different my life is now. How could so much could in the last six years? How did i confuse e comfort of familiarity with true happiness for so long? I’m so humbled by God’s plan for me. A life I could never have imagined six years ago is the life I’m living now and the happiest I’ve ever been. I’m thankful for the journey and I’m glad I’m not that person anymore. It scares me to think about what might have been. Thanks be to God!
